Unifi, Inc through a new division in Sri Lanka, Unifi Textiles Colombo Private Limited (UTCL) based in Colombo will expand global availability of REPREVE recycled fiber and other Premier Value Added (PVA) yarn. The new expansion is expected to begin operations by the end of the third quarter in 2016.
The expansion comes on the heels of Unifi's announcement of new distribution channels in both Turkey and Taiwan, through KORTEKS and Sun Chemical, respectively.
UTCL demonstrates their commitment to operational excellence in their global supply chain, said Tom Caudle, president of Unifi, Inc. Their global footprint for PVA products includes the Americas, China, Turkey, Taiwan and now, Sri Lanka, which means that they can supply their customers anywhere in the world in which they choose to develop a program.
Jay Hertwig, vice president of global brand sales, marketing and product development for Unifi, added that built on high product quality and strong social and environmental standards, Sri Lanka is a compelling sourcing alternative in South Asia. UTCL will provide Unifi with the flexibility and speed-to-market required to respond to the ever-changing needs of their customers.
