Frankl & Thomas Adds Product Lines

Frankl & Thomas Inc., Greenville, recently acquired certain assets of Greenville-based Hurley & Harrison. As a result, Frankl & Thomas has added several product lines including Lamiflex composite tapes; Te Strake air-jet relay nozzles and feeders, as well as other IRO/Te Strake air-jet system components; and Bobotex roll coverings. The company also is the master textile industry distributor for Klüber Lubrication Products; and also offers Reiners + Fürst rings and travelers.

Former Hurley & Harrison associates Bennette Cornwell, Jimmy Cranford, Tim Norton and Wes Wood have joined Frankl & Thomas’ sales team.

Frankl & Thomas has roots dating back to 1946 with the founding of the Ernest L. Frankl Co., the first US firm to import European textile machinery after World War II; and 1971 with the founding of Thomas Textile Machinery, distributor for Japan-based spinneret maker Nippon Nozzle. Those companies merged in 1986.
