facilities.Once we decided to expand our manufacturing base to include warp-knit tricot fabrics, we
knew the company had to make a major commitment to the business, said Robert Fryburg, president of
Superior Fabrics. We built a new production facility, invested in new Liba warp-knit machinery and
hired experienced production people. The investment is paying off.We are well ahead of sales
projections and are working with manufacturers that serve many diversified industrial applications.
