  • Shearing

    Equipped with three complete shear lines, we have the ability to shear just about anything from very high-pile paint rollers and buffing pads to very low-pile applications that require precision. We have experience shearing many different fibers from wool and polyester fabrics to cut resistant blends featuring Nomex®, Kevlar® or Celliant®.

  • Project Management (Cut and Sew)

    There are times when customers are looking for “the whole package.” We can produce a fabric, have it laminated, cut and sewn, and even packaged (depending on your needs). Between our own in house capabilities and our relationships with other laminators and cut and sew houses, we would love the opportunity to find the most efficient and cost effective way to complete your project or product.

  • Picking / Blending

    Whether we are blending many bales of the same fiber to open and emulsify them or the intimate blending of many different fibers in smaller percentages for the ultimate performance blend, our opening/blending department has both sample and large production capabilities allowing us to get consistently homogenous blends.
