Unifi will expand the global availability of its recycled fibre brand, Repreve, and other premier value-added (PVA) yarns through a new division in Sri Lanka, Unifi Textiles Colombo Private Limited (UTCL).

The operations in the new division in Colombo are expected to begin by the end of the third quarter in 2016. Prior to this, Unifi expanded its distribution channels in Turkey through Korteks and in Taiwan through Sun Chemical.

Tom Caudle, president of Unifi, said, “Our global footprint for PVA products includes the Americas, China, Turkey, Taiwan and now, Sri Lanka, which means that we can supply our customers anywhere in the world in which they choose to develop a programme.”

“Built on high product quality and strong social and environmental standards, Sri Lanka is a compelling sourcing alternative in South Asia. UTCL will provide Unifi with the flexibility and speed-to-market required to respond to the ever-changing needs of our customers, “said Jay Hertwig, vice president of global brand sales, marketing and product development, Unifi.
