Ramtex Yarn Production Returns To 24-7 Schedule

Ramtex Yarn ProductionReturns To 24/7 ScheduleAn improving sales picture has helped restore full-time production at Ramtex Inc.s yarn plant. The Ramseur, N.C.-based spinner and weaver, which reduced the size of its weaving operation and also reduced the hours of operation in its yarn plant earlier this year, is now operating four shifts around the clock and has added two new salespeople to its staff to handle yarn sales, according to Walter Bosch, executive vice president.Currently, the yarn plant accounts for 75 percent of the companys business and employs twice as many workers as the weaving plant. Ramtex makes cotton and cotton/polyester-blend yarns to use in its own shirting, pocketing and workwear fabrics, and for sales to other manufacturers. Yarn is spun using ring spinning, Murata Jet Spinning and Murata Vortex Spinning (MVS) machinery. Ramtex is one of the biggest MVS spinners in the United States, Bosch said. December 2003
