Invista invests $65MM in Camden facility

May '17
Invista is investing over $65MM in state-of-the-art fibre production equipment at its US based Camden, South Carolina facility. This investment will help expand capacity of Nylon 6,6 fibre used in a diverse range of applications. It will also significantly increase domestic US capacity of high-tenacity, specialty fibres used in Cordura fabrics.

The new assets will also be capable of manufacturing bulked continuous filament and high-quality fibres for airbags and industrial sewing threads.

The durable Cordura fabrics offer valuable solutions in military applications such as bags, backpacks and ballistic vest carriers as well as a wide variety of commercial end-uses from hiking boots to hunting gear, workwear to motorcycle, and many other outdoor and lifestyle apparel and equipment products.

"This investment is utilising a combination of patented and proprietary technology with flexibility such as solution dyeing which enables increased innovation opportunities around fibre properties and performance and creates a strong platform for our future growth," said Jeff Brown, executive vice president, Invista performance materials division.

Camden is an ideal location being situated in the heart of the textile industry. "As Invista's largest integrated nylon polymer and fibre producing facility, this site offers an ideal footprint for reinvesting in high performance solutions for the markets we serve," added Brown.

This latest investment shows an ongoing commitment by Invista to provide its domestic and global customers with differentiated, value added products manufactured by state-of-the-art equipment. (KD)
