American & Efird Continues Expansion With Foray Into Technical Textiles
“We are greatly broadening our scope of market segments,” said Mark Hatton, global marketing manager, Technical Textiles Division. “These segments include mechanical rubber goods, wire and cable, and electrical motor manufacturing, among other high-performance markets requiring technical textile products. With the acquisitions of Synthetic Thread Company in August of 2004, Ludlow Textiles Company in March of 2005, and Robinson-Anton Textile Company in August of 2005, A&E increased capabilities to design, produce and deliver technical textile products for these segments on a global basis.”
Over the next few years, A&E plans to expand further into performance-driven technical textiles segments.
