Boyd Technologies (BT), parent company of Boyd Converting Company (BCC), the 28-year-old converter, distributor and contract manufacturer to the nonwovens industry, has announced its acquisition of Wellington Custom Fabrics (WCF), in Columbus, Georgia. Boyd assumed full ownership and operation of WCF effective January 1, 2008.

"The acquisition signals the beginning of an exciting era of unlimited future potential for Boyd Technologies," said Bronly B. Boyd, the founder, owner and CEO of the company. "Our aim is to grow the business nationally and internationally by seizing intelligent opportunities to offer our customers economies of scale and new and related product options that support our mutual business goals," he continued.

Boyd intends to keep the headquarters for WCF in its current location, about 100 miles south of Atlanta. The company name will remain the same. Boyd also plans to retain the current workforce level with an eye toward future growth. As part of the acquisition plan, it has appointed Dennis J. Martin as President of WCF, effective immediately. Martin serves as a Vice President and General Manager of BCC, where he has managed the manufacturing facility for the past 28 years.

WCF, was owned by Charles A. Kurtz, who built the company into a key supplier of high-quality fabrics to the apparel industry. "We're both family-run businesses -- said Kurtz about the completed acquisition by Boyd. When Bronly Boyd, the father, who is widely respected in the industry, and his three sons expressed interest, it seemed like a perfect match. After spending this time with the Boyds, I wouldn't sell my business to anyone else," he continued. The two sides have worked in tandem on the details of the transition toward uninterrupted production output.

Boyd Technologies is an entrepreneurial management firm that operates manufacturing companies in the nonwovens industry and markets breakthrough technologies that use those materials. The company is positioned to support and facilitate growth through maximizing leverage of its core business in BCC and recognizing emerging related business opportunities.
