Polyester Fibers is a key partner in production of GeoHay

Polyester Fibers, a diversified manufacturer and distributor of value-added, high-loft non-woven materials, announced that through its partnership with GeoHay, its products are supporting the containment effort in the Gulf of Mexico. GeoHay is a patented, environmentally friendly and green line of barrier filtration products made from recycled fibers.

As oil from BP's Deepwater Horizon leak continues to drift toward beaches along the Gulf of Mexico, local agencies have turned to GeoHay and Polyester Fibers to defend their coast lines. GeoHay will act as a filter along the coast line absorbing the oil and allowing the filtered water to flow back out freely, thus reducing the amount of exposure to oil contamination on the shoreline. Polyester Fibers, a supplier to a diverse set of markets including filtration, produces the recycled textile material which is integral to the construction of GeoHay.

“We are proud to be partnered with GeoHay and to be a part of minimizing the effects of the current disaster in the Gulf,” said Shannon Marshall, chief executive officer of Polyester Fibers. “Our product, together with GeoHay, has been used in many applications in order to protect the environment. This is another example of how our products, while behind the scene, are used to make a difference.”

“Polyester Fibers has been a key partner in our development and production of GeoHay,” said Dan Hargett, CEO of Hargett & Associates and co-owner of GeoHay, LLC. “Polyester Fibers works hand-in-hand with our engineers developing a number of products designed to address numerous environmental concerns.”

C W Roberts, one of the largest road contractors in the Southeast, working with a GeoHay distributor, demonstrated GeoHay's potential for providing excellent protection of the beach and wetlands as well as a method of oil collection. The Emergency Management Office of the Walton County Sheriff's Department has already received truck-loads of material to be used should the oil reach their coast. Operations at Polyester Fibers and GeoHay are prepared for increases in production levels due to further demand generated by the mitigation efforts. Discussions are underway to expand the support for protection and cleanup efforts in Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana and Texas.

Polyester Fibers is the largest and most flexible manufacturer and distributor of value-added, high-loft non-woven materials for the bedding, furniture, filtration, industrial and retail markets in the United States. The company, comprised of 5 operating units: Tupelo Fibers, Cameo Fibers, Cumulus Fibres, Mountain Mist and Buffalo Batt; has more than 450 employees serving thousands of customers in the United States, Canada and Europe.
