The governor of North Carolina Pat Mccrory inaugurated the expanded facilities of yarn producer Unifi in Reidsville and Yadkinville, which will add 87 new jobs. The governor had earlier approved grants to both the Unifi plants to undertake expansions, so while the Reidsville plant received $500,000, the Yadkinville facility bagged $190,000 in grants.

Founded in 1971, Unifi is a diversified manufacturer of synthetic filament yarns. The company is also a producer of recycled yarn, which it produces from polyester fibres recycled from PET bottles.

Its product portfolio includes partially-oriented yarn, the texturing, air-jet texturing, twisting, and beaming of polyester and the texturing and covering of nylon filament yarns.

Additionally, the company also has a package dyeing operation, where it is able to dye a wide range of substrates. (AR)
