Unifi, a leader of innovative and sustainable textile fibre solutions, has announced that the company has appointed Jorge Salazar as the general manager of Unifi Central America, (UCA). Unifi is a global textile solutions provider and one of the world’s leading innovators in manufacturing synthetic and recycled performance fibres, headquartered in the US.

“Jorge brings an extensive background in operations and sales management to Unifi, where he will lead in driving impact and high-quality results to our daily processes. His invaluable background supervising logistics and customer service, coupled with his extensive experience in Central America, will drive our strategic development in the region,” Tom Caudle, president and chief operating officer of Unifi said in a press release.

Salazar has a demonstrated history of managing operations within the textiles industry. Prior to joining Unifi, he served as the director for CS Central America, a global polyester and nylon yarn producer, where he oversaw the start-up of operations in 2006, and subsequently led the business.

“Unifi’s global presence brings innovation, consistency and flexibility to every major textile-producing region on an international scale. Central America is no exception to Unifi’s tradition of quality, sustainable manufacturing. I look forward to working with Unifi’s leadership to build upon the team’s operational plans for the region,” Jorge Salazar said.

UCA began operating in 2010. Located in the Free Zone, American Industrial Park in El Salvador, the CAFTA-compliant facility’s innovative supply chain provides rapid response and delivery throughout the region. Through UCA, Unifi’s offerings in Central America include key products, such as Repreve recycled polyester and Tru-Technologies, Unifi’s performance fibres. (GK)
