Custom Nonwoven To Open Plant In Thomasville, N.C., Add 72 Jobs

Custom Nonwoven Inc. — a manufacturer of polyester nonwoven pads and rolls via a thermal bonding process, and a subsidiary of Korea-based polyester staple fiber producer Korea Synthetic Fiber — will invest more than $12.8 million to open a manufacturing plant in Thomasville, N.C., and create 72 jobs. The company received a One North Carolina Fund grant of up to $128,000 to assist it with the expansion.

The facility will manufacture fire-retardant barrier and mattress pads for use in cushion seatings for medical, military and institutional applications.

"We are really excited to be a member of the furniture capital of the world, partnered with the City of Thomasville and Davidson County," said JM Kim, owner, Customer Nonwoven Inc. "We will do our best to make a positive impact on the local area by creating more jobs and growing together."
