Spector uses solar power to produce US-made laundry bags

Spector Textile Products, a well established textile manufacturer in Lawrence, Massachusetts has taken the turn towards green production practices with the installation of a 365 kilowatt solar power system for their manufacturing facility. Now, the company is launching a new product line called USA MADE Laundry Bags, a brand of recyclable laundry bags that are made with domestically sourced fabric and thread. In a market flooded with subpar foreign imports, Spector Textile Products has created a product line that will give consumers what they want. USA MADE Laundry bags are reasonably priced and environmentally friendly goods that are produced in the USA.

The domestic nylon and thread that is used to make USA MADE Laundry Bags is of the finest quality, giving Spector Textile Products the ability to offer a 12 month guarantee on the bags. If anything breaks or tears the customer can have it repaired or replaced at no cost. With sustainability at the forefront of American values, Spector Textile Products has used solar power and a recycling effort to drive an American made product that has little to no carbon footprint.

“Spector Textile Products is committed to supporting American made products while using 100% green solar energy. We are invested in our community, and provide jobs and opportunity for our neighbors. Our USA MADE Laundry Bags are environmentally responsible and support what Americans value most, sustainable living and a thriving US economy,” said Howard Spector, President of Spector Textile Products.

For more than 15 years, Spector Textile Products has been manufacturing laundry bags and mesh wash nets for the institutional laundry and dry cleaning trade. Over the last several years however, the business has changed significantly. With half of the overseas textile plants closing, it has been nearly impossible to get consistency in the color and quality of the nylon fabrics used to make the laundry bags and nets. With the launch of USA MADE Laundry Bags, Spector Textile Products is able to give their customers consistency of fabric and color – a must have for dry cleaning and laundromat chains across the country.

“It only makes sense for us to move with the ebb and flow of the textile import business. In this case, we have decided that the best thing to do for our customers is to create a product that will meet their needs, at the lowest possible cost- both monetarily and environmentally. USA MADE Laundry Bags meet our customer's quality, consistency and sustainability requirements. Imports just can't do that right now,” said Howard Flagler, VP of Sales and Marketing at Spector Textile Products.

In the wake of one of the worst economic downturns in American history, Spector Textile Products' President, Howard Spector has taken his family business to a new level. The company is evolving right alongside American values by investing in a solar powered facility, creating more American made products and growing jobs for the Merrimack Valley.
