Unifi Expands REPREVE® Recycling Center

Greensboro-based textured yarn manufacturer Unifi Inc. has invested $5 million to expand its REPREVE® Recycling Center in Yadkinville, N.C., and add 10 jobs. The expansion will support growth of Repreve post-consumer recycled polyester fiber and other premium value-added products. Unifi reports increasing demand for those products as companies such as Ford, The North Face, Nike, Volcom and Patagonia have begun adopting its products.
 
The expansion will increase annual recycling capacity at the center from 42 million pounds to 72 million pounds, and will increase the availability of Repreve products such as lower deniers used in lighter-weight apparel; FR Flame Retardant yarns; and WaterWise™ color technology.
 
“Expanding our Repreve manufacturing capabilities highlights our commitment to the Repreve brand and provides increased flexibility to better serve our customers,” said Roger Berrier, president and COO, Unifi. “As we bring the new machinery online, it’s clear that the increased versatility will help better position Repreve to support the growth and demand for recycled products.”
 
Unifi has invested a total of $15 million in the Repreve Recycling Center since its opening in May 2010. The center is located at the company’s G. Allen Mebane Industrial Complex.
