CHARLOTTE, N.C. — September 30, 2016 — Roger J. Crossfield, president of the Synthetic Yarn and Fiber Association (SYFA), reported the Board’s decision to rename the organization the Synthetic Yarn and “Fabric” Association during the business session at the September 29-30, 2016 fall conference at the Sheraton Charlotte Airport Hotel, Charlotte, N.C.
The new name reflects the expanded supply chain and broadens the reach of the membership base to appeal to a wider audience beyond fibers and yarns. In addition to the name change, the Association plans to launch a newly designed website in November 2016.
SYFA members include fiber producers, texturizers, staple yarn manufacturers, fabric producers for apparel, automotive, upholstery, and industrial markets. Additionally, raw material suppliers, equipment manufacturers, and service providers related to the industry are valuable contributors to the organization.
The Association was previously called the Textured Yarn Association of America (TYAA) through the 1990’s until 2006 when the organization became the Synthetic Yarn and Fiber Association.
