YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2017-05-09 14:00:00 – WICHITA

INVISTA plans to expand its capacity of Nylon 6,6 fiber used in a diverse range of applications for which it would be investing over $65MM in state-of-the-art fiber production equipment at its US based Camden, SC facility.

This investment will significantly increase domestic US capacity of high-tenacity, specialty fibers used in CORDURA fabrics. These durable fabrics offer valuable solutions in military applications such as bags, backpacks and ballistic vest carriers as well as a wide variety of commercial end-uses from hiking boots to hunting gear, workwear to motorcycle, and many other outdoor and lifestyle apparel and equipment products.

The new assets will also be capable of manufacturing bulked continuous filament and high-quality fibers for airbags and industrial sewing threads.

According to Jeff Brown, Executive Vice President, INVISTA Performance Materials division, this investment is utilizing a combination of patented and proprietary technology with flexibility such as solution dyeing which enables increased innovation opportunities around fiber properties and performance and creates a strong platform for their future growth.

Brown said that Camden is an ideal location being situated in the heart of the textile industry. As INVISTA’s largest integrated nylon polymer and fiber producing facility, this site offers an ideal footprint for reinvesting in high performance solutions for the markets they serve.

This latest investment by INVISTA shows their ongoing commitment to provide with differentiated value added products manufactured by state-of-the-art equipment for its domestic and global customers.
