Glen Raven relocates fabric lamination plant

Technical Fabrics' Park Avenue finishing plant has added another tool to its performance fabric's tool kit - fabric lamination. Equipment formerly located in Statesville has been relocated to Park Avenue where associates are looking for ways to further enhance the process and develop new product applications.

"By adding lamination capabilities at Park Avenue, we are leveraging our other existing resources and capabilities in warehousing, inventory management and materials handling," said Ricky Michael, vice president for finishing services with Technical Fabrics. "Best of all, by bringing lamination under the Park Avenue umbrella, we can explore ways to make these processes more efficient, and we can also develop new product lines using lamination."

Current applications for laminated fabrics include Glen Raven's R.J. Stern subsidiary, which uses the fabrics to manufacture curtains used in mines to enhance ventilation and airflow. Laminated fabrics are also used for pool covers and tarps and for Glen Raven's AutoGuard product line, which is used to protect components during vehicle assembly.

Glen Raven associates in Statesville are being offered the opportunity to transfer to Park Avenue with the relocation of the lamination lines. Four employees have made the move thus far.
