TMC buys out renowned spinning facility NUYARN
Mar '13
The Merino Company (TMC) has acquired renowned spinning facility NUYARN, strengthening its fabric and garment offerings to the outdoor, fashion, performance socks and seamless markets. 
Since its beginnings some 14 years ago in Christchurch, New Zealand, NUYARN has been regarded as the spinning technology that reinvented worldwide expectations for innovative fabrics and apparel. 
The acquisition of NUYARN and its worldwide patents enables TMC to produce highly specialised circular knitted fabrics, fully fashioned and seamless garments. TMC aims to further develop the technology and commercialise a raft of new fabrics and apparel, making significant improvements to merino and merino blends. 
"TMC has been manufacturing with NUYARN yarns for approximately eight years but had been confined to Australasia until 2012," said TMC's CEO Andy Wynne. "The acquisition of NUYARN will see TMC capture greater market share through real innovation and performance" 
NUYARN has been relocated from Christchurch to TMC's textile facility in Levin, Levana Textiles. Key NUYARN technicians will join the team in Levin and will oversee training of new staff, production, innovation and expansion. 
Wynn said, "TMC has acquired enough machinery to increase the output of NUYARN by some 54,000kg per month. This expansion program will take three years and create 40 additional jobs in Levin." 
TMC's fabrics made using NUYARN technology will boast enhanced comfort and impressive performance criteria independently certified by AGResearch, the leading Wool Research Organisation of New Zealand (WRONZ) including: 
-Durability without added weight: Bulk 38.9% higher 
-Improved stretch and recovery: Burst strength 16% greater » Quick dry: up to 5 times faster 
-Warmth Retention: 25% higher 
-Air Resistance: 62% higher 
-Relative Water Vapour Resistance: 51 % higher 
-Blister free socks 
 The combination of NUYARN's specialised spinning technology with TMC's reputation for quality and innovation will provide a strong and unique competitive edge and expanded product offering to their customers. 
TMC is a specialist in the manufacture and global sales of merino and merino products, providing natural fibre, textile and apparel solutions for the world's leading retailers and brands. 
TMC has global capabilities, either owned or through select partners, in early stage processing, knitting, and garment manufacture. TMC is renowned for its expertise in new merino innovations, developing advanced technologies from luxurious soft and colourful next-to-skin jersey fabrics to medical breakthroughs in compression socks.
