Universal Fibers wins environmental excellence award
Universal Fibers has bagged award for environmental excellence and community impact by the Southwest Virginia Alliance of Manufacturers (SVAM). In an effort to strengthen its position as a world-leading region of advanced manufacturing, SVAM is a collaborative NGO dedicated to uniting institutions, workforce development boards with partnered manufacturers.

For nearly 50 years, Universal Fibers has taken great pride in its position as world leaders in sustainability. "More than our eco-processes in manufacturing and sustainable products, we believe true sustainability begins by ensuring safe practices and healthy environments for our dedicated Associates and local communities in which we live and serve," said Ranae Anderson, global sustainability leader. "We are thrilled to be recognized and wish to thank the SVAM for honoring Universal Fibers with these two very prestigious awards consistent with EnLIST, our four point commitment to environmental stewardship."

As first to market solution-dyed synthetic fibre in a broad colour palette, a virtually waterless dyeing process, Universal Fibers has led the industry with sustainable innovation including pre-consumer recycling, post-consumer recycling and its latest introduction of Thrive, the most sustainable solution-dyed high performance type 66 carpet fibre in the world.

Universal Fibers, Inc. is one of two business units within Universal Fiber Systems, LLC, with Premiere Fibers, Inc. the second business unit. Based in Bristol, Virginia US with manufacturing facilities in Europe, Thailand and China, Universal Fibers, Inc. is a global leader in the production of high quality, solution-dyed synthetic filament-based fibres for the flooring, transportation and industrial fibres industries.
