Home News INVISTA small-lot technology upgrades to be launched

Camden, S.C.—INVISTA’s $30-million expansion in small-lot equipment specifically for solution-dyed nylon 6,6 bulk continuous filament (BCF) fiber production will become fully operational in the coming weeks. The launch will be officially commemorated with a ribbon cutting ceremony in July 2018 at the manufacturing facility in Camden, S.C.

The investment directly supports INVISTA’s commitment to the growth of the Antron brand and the LumenaTM fiber portfolio that serves solution-dyed BCF nylon commercial markets globally.

“The new technology will expand our capability to continue offering high-quality solution dyed nylon fiber solutions, while improving our ability to meet the needs of our customers,” said Kip Kimball, vice president of Global Commercial Solutions and Home Textiles.

INVISTA developed this innovative, proprietary small-lot technology by working closely with equipment manufacturer, Truetzschler. “We are excited to partner with INVISTA to deliver the highest quality of BCF extrusion technology, contributing to an important expansion for their business,” said Dr. Dirk Burger, CEO of the Truetzschler Group.
