Martex Fiber Southern Corp. and Bollag International Corp., Pioneers of Textile Recycling, Form Strategic Alliance to Meet Intensifying Demands for a Greener World Two innovative leaders in collecting and processing new textile waste combine their market experience to create strong economies of scale and solve evolving demands for recycling in the dynamic eco-conscious marketplace.

These global industry leaders in textile recycling have created a strategic service agreement to jointly share their expertise to facilitate collections and meet growing textile recycling needs. Through this strategic alliance, Martex Fiber and Bollag International — which each offer textile recycling and waste removal services for cut and sew operations as well as for knitters, weavers, spinners, nonwoven manufacturers and fiber producers — will jointly service producers in the US as well as the CAFTA region of Central America.

Together, Bollag and Martex Fiber join their proven track records and more-than 100 years combined global business experience to establish unparalleled levels of service and sales for customers throughout the world who seek “greener” textile products, improved “carbon footprints” and services that “close the loop”.

“This strategic alliance represents an exciting and substantial win-win, not only for our companies but more significantly for our vendors, customers and potential customers around the world who are more and more committed to sustainability,” commented Jimmy Jarrett, co-founder and president of Martex Fiber. “The world is changing and our vendors and clients are looking at how they can become more eco-friendly – recycle all their textile waste grades and also utilize components and supplies made from recycled materials. The synergies between Bollag and Martex make us immensely qualified to help future thinking companies. It provides our customers with the innovative solutions that meet all their current-day challenges for achieving carbon footprint reduction.”

Jointly, Martex Fiber and Bollag International collect, process and recycle more than 175 million pounds of new textile waste annually.

The two organizations serve many of the world's most recognized textile and apparel manufacturers, retailers, automotive companies and nonwovens producers throughout the world.

“With the obvious synergies created through this strategic venture, the possibilities for our diverse array of customers are truly limitless,” said Mitchel Bollag, President of Bollag International. “Combined, we'll have greater capabilities than virtually anyone in this hemisphere to recycle all types of waste streams, thanks to our diversified sales outlets, our longevity and the scope and breadth of both our collection operations. Our main value to our suppliers will be the use of local Bollag operations and the company's great ability to sort and grade textile by-products. Martex Fiber expands our capability by adding their ability to process the materials into useful eco-friendly end products and yarn.”
