Unifi Shifts Polyester Texturing Operations

Unifi, Inc. is moving its polyester texturing operations performed in the company's Reidsville, N.C., plant to its larger facilities in Yadkinville, N.C.

The move, which is expected to be completed by Oct. 1, will result in the elimination of approximately 150 positions in Reidsville and the addition of approximately 100 positions in Yadkinville, according to the company.

With the move, Reidsville will no longer texture polyester yarn used in its dyed-yarn operations. Yadkinville will produce the products on existing equipment, as the equipment in Reidsville will not be moved to Yadkinville, stated Unifi. Texturing employees in Reidsville will be offered the opportunity to transfer to Yadkinville or other Unifi facilities where openings exist.

The company expects that there will be minimal impact to the dyed operations.
