Unifi opens Repreve Recycling

Unifi, Inc. celebrated the official opening of its Repreve Recycling Center. The $8 million investment will allow the company to expand production capacities of its Repreve recycled fiber.

Repreve is a recycled polyester and nylon fiber that can be used in a wide range of applications, including apparel, automotive, seating and paneling fabrics.

The 50,000 square foot recycling center enables Unifi to recycle post-industrial and post-consumer polyester waste, and in the future, fabrics and garments. The goal of the facility is to expand production capacities and capabilities, improve fiber color and drive volume growth for improved economics.
