Coats acquires yarn manufacturer Patrick Yarn Mill
Coats, the world’s leading industrial thread manufacturer, has announced that it has acquired Patrick Yarn Mill, a manufacturer of high-performance engineered yarns based in North Carolina, US. Patrick Yarn Mill specialises in cut-resistant and flame retardant yarns. Headquartered in UK, Coats is a major player in the Americas textile crafts market.

Patrick Yarn Mill also produces yarns from recycled fibres marketed under its earthspun trademarks and with its large solar installation promotes its earth friendly yarns as ‘Spun by the Sun’.

The yarn company’s unique spinning competencies in engineered performance yarns offer an opportunity to expand Coats’ existing Performance Materials portfolio as well as to extend its innovation capability. Coats will support Patrick Yarn Mill’s expansion into high-growth markets by leveraging Coats’ unrivalled geographic footprint, breadth of global customer relationships, and strong corporate brand.

Rajiv Sharma, chief executive, Coats said, “Patrick Yarn Mill is an exciting acquisition that supports a key aspect of our growth strategy: to identify innovation synergies that build scale in high technology sectors. It is a dynamic, customer focused company and its unique spinning systems combined with our existing technology portfolio will provide a strong market offering.”

Gilbert Patrick, president, Patrick Yarn Mill said, “Patrick Yarn Mill becoming part of the Coats family creates many opportunities for both companies as there is a lot of synergy between our product offerings and technology. A key one is being able to leverage Coats’ unrivalled global footprint and strong corporate brand to accelerate market growth, which will benefit not only Patrick Yarn Mill, but also our employees and our community. The opportunity to collaborate with a market leader in areas such as innovation and R&D is extremely exciting and very positive, not only for Patrick Yarn Mill’s future but also for our customers’ future.”

The acquisition shows Coats’ intent to grow via M&A in performance materials and services, two areas of strategic priority. (GK)
