Morrison Textile Machinery Co., Fort Lawn, S.C., reports it recently has received orders for denim
processing machinery and equipment from several denim manufacturers in Mexico and Asia. Sales of
Morrison Denim Systems include the following:
Mexico-based Manufacturas Kaltex S.A. de C.V. is expanding its production with the
installation of two MDS integrated denim finishing ranges that feature S8 compressive shrinking
units with AutoGRIND™ for automated resurfacing/belt grinding based on a two-hour grind cycle.
