Meridian Industries Inc., Milwaukee, has acquired Calhoun, Ga.-based Astro Dye Works. Astro, which specializes in space-dyeing and twisting novelty yarns, will become part of Meridian Dyed Yarn Group. The Yarn Dyed Group operates two package dye houses with twisting and winding capability located in Valdese, N.C., and Belmont, N.C.We are very excited about the acquisition of Astro and believe it will help strengthen and complement our position as the number-one supplier of dyed yarns to the home furnishings market and increase our share in the apparel market, said Rob Setliff, president, Meridian Yarn Dyed Group. It also allows us an opportunity to serve the automotive market that we have not participated in before, he added.
