Merrow prefers A&E threads for Activeseam applications
Aug '13
American & Efird  (A&E) one of the world’s leading manufacturers of industrial sewing thread announced its appointment by Merrow as a preferred sewing thread for Activeseam  applications.  This occurs as Merrow’s Activeseam.com website makes its global debut.

A sewing machine innovator since 1838, the Merrow Sewing Machine Co. brings seaming to life with its unique branded stitch, ActiveSeam. Incredible seam comfort, distinct appearance and dynamic performance define ActiveSeam, which is sewn as one of three different configurations on Merrow’s flat overlock sewing machine, the MB-4DFO.

Coupled with A&E’s position as a global thread leader and the Merrow Stitch Lab, ActiveSeam presents a new way of developing, producing and marketing the value of sewn products and A&E is proud to be part of the Merrow branded stitch revolution.

Where there is Activeseam, there is A&E thread.  A&E’s global brands Anesoft, Perma Core and Anefil Polyester have been proven by Merrow’s Stitch Lab to maximize the performance of Activeseam in many apparel products.  

Possessing an industry leading commitment to environmental sustainability and corporate social responsibility, and a global promise to deliver exact color, superior quality and the most innovative products from any of it distribution points in over 41 countries, A&E is the preferred global supplier to many of the world’s leading apparel manufacturers and brands.   A&E’s technical expertise and global capabilities ensure that as new Activeseam applications emerge; A&E thread will remain the right choice. 


Headquartered in Mt. Holly, NC, American & Efird has manufacturing centers and distribution points in 41 countries. Founded in 1891, A&E maintains a longstanding commitment to Environmental Health & Safety, Sustainability and Social Responsibility in all of its worldwide operations.
