Quantum Invests To Increase Domestic Capacity

Greensboro, N.C.-based Quantum Materials announced a $3.5 million investment in state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment to meet increased demand for domestic production capabilities resulting from global supply chain disruptions and market voids. The investment will support research, development and manufacturing for non-traditional and high-performance woven textile solutions.

“Over the last 18 months, our R&D team has been working on proprietary, custom equipment designed to give us the flexibility to work in any textile-related industry needing specialized yarns and/or fabrics,” said Jeff Bruner, Quantum founder and vice chairman. “We made the decision to fast track this project so that we can be a domestic resource due to many of the current global dynamics affecting our industry.”
