ASHEBORO, N.C. — February 7, 2014 — AEC Narrow Fabrics, formerly known as Asheboro Elastics, has announced a name change for its TESA plant located in Honduras, Central America. TESA – Telas Elasticas, S. de R.L. was acquired by AEC Narrow Fabrics in April 2012 and has expanded AEC’s product line and development capabilities. Now renamed AEC – Honduras, this operation is focused on the manufacture of jacquard and intimate apparel elastics.
“We are very pleased about the positive changes that have been made at the former TESA plant with regard to capital investment, equipment refurbishing, quality enhancements and lead time/service level improvements,” commented Robert Lawson, President of AEC Narrow Fabrics. “These improvements are so comprehensive that most of our customers and visitors say they do not even recognize our Honduran plant as the old TESA. Our new name, AEC – Honduras, acknowledges our improvement investments and aligns our Honduran plant’s name more closely with all of our locations.”
AEC – Honduras’ woven capabilities combined with knitted production from the AEC plant in El Salvador, plus knitted and woven elastics and rigid tape production from its Asheboro, North Carolina plants, position AEC as the most capable, full-range narrow fabrics producer in North and Central America.
