Manufacturer of polyester recycled fibres and yarns has licensed its technology to Turkey based Korteks, who will manufacture Unifi's Repreve fibre.

“Additionally, the company has also appointed Taiwan based Sun Chemicals who will distribute Repreve fibre,” a press release from Unifi stated.

“These collaborations will greatly expand global distribution channels for Repreve, helping to shorten lead times and broaden options anywhere in the world customers do business,” it said.

Its Chinese subsidiary Unifi Textiles Suzhou Co., Ltd. (UTSC) will also debut Repreve products with additional performance options at the Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics show in Shanghai, China.

Korteks is the largest European fully-integrated polyester continuous filament yarn manufacturer.

“Globally expanding our Repreve manufacturing capabilities highlights our commitment to the brand and allows us to better serve our customers worldwide,” said Roger Berrier, COO at Unifi, Inc.

“This expansion into new global markets underscores our dedication to remaining a leader in sustainable solutions and recycled products around the world,” Berrier added.

In addition to expanding global availability, Unifi continues to increase the versatility and offerings in Asia and Europe of Repreve by combining more PVA performance benefits with sustainable options.

UTSC will highlight several new product offerings at the Intertextile Shanghai show, including Repreve with Augusta CL, which provides the natural look and feel of cotton and the superior performance of synthetics.

UTSC will also debut a new, longer Repreve staple fibre that is ideal for wool blends and Repreve filament with cationic-dyeable and disperse-dyeable polyester blended for heather effects.

“The company will continue to offer Repreve with Sorbtek, a moisture-wicking management yarn, in both filament and staple fibre versions,” Unifi stated.

“We are focused on providing our customers with eco-friendly products with the added performance benefits that consumers expect in products they wear and use every day,” Ed Wickes, president of UTSC too said.

“Our goal is to be a global resource for our customers no matter where they choose to do business,” Wickes informed. (AR)
