Unifi to introduce REPREVE nylon 6,6 at Intertextile, China

Unifi Inc continues to evolve and expand its REPREVE offering in China and will introduce REPREVE nylon 6,6 to the Chinese market at the 2008 Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics Show. REPREVE nylon will be available through Unifi Textiles (Suzhou) Co., Ltd. (UTSC), the Company's new China-based subsidiary.

Like REPREVE polyester, REPREVE nylon is a first quality yarn made from 100% recycled materials. The production of REPREVE reduces energy consumption and conserves petroleum-based resources by offsetting the need to produce virgin fibers. The nylon version is suitable for a number of product applications, including apparel and hosiery.

"The addition of a recycled nylon 6,6 to the REPREVE brand portfolio considerably expands the potential customer and product base for the product. And now with the product availability in Asia, this will further allow us to consistently supply high quality 100% recycled products wherever our customers choose to do business," said Roger Berrier, executive vice president for Unifi.

UTSC will manage all sales, marketing, distribution and technical support in Asia for Unifi's premium value-added yarns, including REPREVE. "This will provide our customers in the region with faster product innovations and enhanced service and flexibility," added Berrier. Please visit UTSC at booth W1E02 for additional information on REPREVE nylon and other premium value-added products from Unifi. The Intertextile Shanghai Apparel Fabrics Show will be held October 20 - 23, 2008 at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre in Shanghai, China.
