To become the preferred global supplier of industrial sewing thread, embroidery thread & technical textiles, thread maker and portfolio company of Elevate Textiles, American & Efird (A&E), celebrated completion of its 28th global manufacturing facility at its new Vietnam site. The Vietnam facility began in June 2018 and was completed and operational on June 1.

The new state-of-the-art facility is located in Nhon Trach Industrial Park 6, Dong Nai Province, South Vietnam and will add more than 150 new jobs to the region. A&E's newest expansion is 37 km from Cat Lai port, 50 km away from Tan Son Nhat airport in Ho Chi Minh City and less than 20 km away from Long Thanh Airport.

Strategically positioned to provide expanded services and regional support for apparel, footwear, handbags, and other sewn products in Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos, A&E's newest manufacturing site supports its commitment to produce premium quality thread products in the most sustainable manner. The new site aligns the company with the tremendous growth of the sewn products industry in this region and provides the ability for future expansion.

"Vietnam is an important country for the textile and apparel sewn industry," said A&E president, Chris Alt. "It is the second largest exporter of apparel to the United States and one of the largest global producers of apparel and non-apparel products. Setting up in Vietnam with manufacturing is very strategic to our future growth."

Well known for its leadership role in innovation, product quality, and sustainability, A&E supports many of the world's top industrial and consumer brands with thread products that require strict quality and integrity. At the end of September, A&E introduced its 100 per cent recycled sewing thread line, Eco100 to the textile market.
