KENTWOOL was awarded a unique quality certification, unprecedented in North America, by Uster Technologies of Switzerland. The formal awarding of the certificate on December 11th by Uster officials was the culmination of a rigorous audit process conducted over the past two months at KENTWOOL's 100,000 sq ft Upstate South Carolina production facility.

According to Uster Vice President, Alvin Ellison, the audit process demonstrated KENTWOOL's best-in-class capabilities for producing some of the world's finest wool yarns. Uster has certified approximately 45 companies in 13 countries; and, KENTWOOL is the first in North and South America to achieve this coveted designation, which quantitatively signifies defined and certified quality within the textile chain.

The granting of the Usterized certificate was directly tied to KENTWOOL proving its capabilities in several production and operational categories of excellence, including a demonstrated professional quality management system fully capable of testing quality characteristics for yarns on a consistent, sustainable basis.

Mark Kent, KENTWOOL President and CEO, stated “Achieving this unique quality certification from the most respected textile quality firm on the planet, coupled with our ability to produce the finest wool yarn in North America, confirms we are on track to achieve our vision of becoming the premier wool innovation and manufacturing company in the world.”

Uster Technologies, which has been in business for more than a century, is the world's market leader in textile quality online and laboratory monitoring systems. With three technology centers in Switzerland, China, and the United States; six worldwide service centers, including centers in Charlotte and Knoxville in the US; and fifty global offices; the company has been widely recognized over the past 50 years for setting the standards for quality control in the global textile industry. Those standards, known as Uster Statistics, are often the basis for the trading of textile products at assured levels of quality across global markets.
