Performance Fibers announces second yarn expansion in Germany

Jun '07
Performance Fibers, one of the world's leading producers of polyester fibers and materials announced its second polyester yarn expansion in Germany since acquiring the business last year.

The company said it will invest in spinning machines in early 2008 at its Bad Hersfeld plant to increase capacity of tie-yarn for weft-insertion fabrics by 30 percent, to meet strong demand from customers.

Performance Fibers produces high-tenacity 80 dtex yarns to meet the exact production specifications used in premium applications such as back-lit signs, billboards and other applications.

The planned expansion follows a multi-million dollar investment in modernized draw winder machinery to be completed in July that expands capacity for low-denier industrial (LDI) yarn by more than 10 percent.

These yarns are used in sewing, embroidery, outdoor fabric, awnings, banners, outdoor signs, flags, technical textiles and apparel.

“These two recent investments keep our state-of-the-art facility in Bad Hersfeld competitive and meet our customers' needs for these specialized yarns,” said Greg Rogowski, president and CEO of Performance Fibers.

“In addition to Europe, we recently announced an expansion of tire yarn production in China. Globally, we are committed to capitalizing on growth opportunities that will ensure our long-term business success.”
