Fruit Of The Loom Selects Rieter Spinning And Draw-Frames
Fruit of the Loom Inc., Chicago, is in the process of modernizing its Leesburg, Ala., plant and has
decided to purchase a number of R 20 rotor spinning machines from Rieter Corp., Spartanburg, S.C.
The R 20 machines will be supported by new Rieter RSB D-30 drawframes.Fruit of the Loom
representatives stated, The cost reductions that will result at Leesburg are possible because of
the many unique features offered by the Rieter R 20 rotor-spinning machines. Our personnel were
very favorably impressed with the productivity and operator friendliness of the R 20 machine and
with the excellent performance of the Rieter spun yarn in the knitting operation. Fruit of the Loom
is very pleased to have Rieter as a partner in this project.
