Universal Fibers continues to write the headlines, developing new technology and products that lead to a better tomorrow and a healthier environment. The company has launched EarthSmart Technology. It's more than products and processes, it's a way of thinking, planning and acting. Earth Smart Technology is all encompassing. It's stewardship through innovation.

"We have always been concerned about our environment," said Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Bill Goodman. "We wanted to take our commitment to a better tomorrow to a new level. EarthSmart Technology does that."

EarthSmart Technology has various components. It includes manufacturing processes and equipment, recycled and recyclable products, waste saving systems and facility conservation. It is also an overall attitude of environmental and social concern on the part of the company and its employees.

Examples of EarthSmart Technology include Universal Fiber's state of the art technology that allowed them to produce the first ever post-consumer nylon 6,6 fiber from recycled carpeting.

"It's about stewardship through innovation," Bentley Park, President of Universal Fibers said. "We are constantly being told these things are not possible, these things cannot be done, and we are consistently proving them wrong."

"It's our technology that really sets us apart from the competition," Park says. "One of our first nylon 6,6 fiber products under EarthSmart Technology has appropriately been named Refresh Fiber." Since the innovation, Universal Fibers has also been able to expand the color options and increase the amount of recycled carpet used to create the new product. "Our product development team is always looking forward, in search of the next product or process. It is how we keep Universal Fibers at the forefront of our industry."
