Marriott hotel chain to make use towels made in the U.S soon

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2016-04-27 17:00:00 – New York

Marriott hotel Chain which includes brands like The Ritz-Carlton, Renaissance Hotels, Courtyard Marriott and TownePlace Suites recently announced that it would be changing over its hand towels and bath towels made overseas for those made in the U.S.

Travelers staying at any of Marriott’s nearly 3,000 U.S. hotels may notice a little something different in their guest rooms in the coming year.

Arne Sorenson, president and CEO of Marriott said that they are not going to throw away the existing towels until they need to be replaced. … As they need to be replaced, the made-in-the-USA towels will take a year to come.

Sorenson said that the plan has been in the works for nearly a year. It was important for the company to not only bring the manufacturing back to the U.S., but also ensure that it would be economically sustainable.

According to Marriott, Standard Textile will make the towels using 100 percent cotton fiber from the U.S. The company would “break even” because the money saved from not paying for 300 shipping containers from Jordan manufacturers would offset the cost of making the towels stateside.

Marriott expects to produce 2.6 million bath towels and 4.9 million hand towels annually.

Marriott’s commitment to buy ‘Made in USA’ guestroom terry products creates 150 new jobs in Standard Textile’s facilities in Thomaston [Georgia] and Union [South Carolina], as well as at the company’s Cincinnati [Ohio] headquarters and through its supply chain.
