US upholstery, bedding and drapery fabrics manufacturer Abercrombie Textiles was recently acquired by The Crypton Companies, which offers performance textile technologies in the home furnishings, apparel and contract markets. The former, based in Cliffside, North Carolina, will continue to manufacture dobby and jacquard fabrics under the latter.

The two companies have been working together for 17 years, with Abercrombie serving as a licensed mill partner, according to US media reports.

Plans are to show a new residential collection of solids, textures and jacquards at the November Showtime Market.

Crypton will be expanding Abercrombie into new markets with new designs and product innovation and that implies more jobs for American textile workers, said Lance Keziah, chief executive officer of Crypton LLC.

Keziah will oversee Abercrombie and has hired Ernest Benbassat as executive vice president of operations. Former owner John Regan will remain with Abercrombie to provide continuity, knowledge and sales leadership. (DS)
