Our vast range of capabilities, state-of the art machinery and automation provide us with the needed flexibility to competitively operate on a global platform. Our core business consists of the manufacturing of POY (partially-oriented yarn), the texturing, air-jet texturing, twisting, and beaming of polyester and the texturing and covering of nylon filament yarns. Additionally, we have a large package dyeing operation, where we are able to dye a wide range of substrates. Unifi yarns can be found in many products, including apparel, hosiery, automotive, industrial applications and home and contract furnishings.
 

Driven by innovation and committed to global product commercialization, our goal is to provide customers and consumers with products that enhance the value of everyday products. Customers that choose to do business with Unifi have quick access to the newest products, including Unifi's portfolio of branded products. Some of these products include aio® -- all-in-one performance yarns, SORBTEK® A.M.Y.®, MYNX® UV, REPREVE®, REFLEXX®, INHIBIT® and SATURA®. These branded products can be found in many products manufactured by the world's leading brands and retailers.

Founded in 1971, Unifi has evolved into one of the most diversified producers of synthetic filament yarns. With renewed momentum and a commitment to strengthen the company and shareholder value, Unifi is positioned for success. The Company continues to drive growth organically through increased support of branded products and a continued focus on operational excellence.



 

  • Our Capabilities & Services

    Our manufacturing processes turn raw materials and fiber into synthetic filament yarns. These yarns are then sold and further processed into fabrics. Outside of our wide range of manufacturing capabilities, we provide many value added services to our customers including onsite technical service and door-to-door delivery through Unifi owned and operated transportation.
     

  • POY

    The first step in producing synthetic yarn begins with the raw material known as POY (partially-oriented yarn). POY is made from small polymer beads that are melted and extruded through microscopic holes to form a single fiber filament. In addition to producing natural POY, Unifi also has the ability to produce solution dyed polyester for use in color rich fabrics.
     

  • Texturing & Air Jet Texturing

    We draw, heat and twist the continuous filament yarn to optimize various physical characteristics like bulk, strength, stretch and dyeability. Our advanced air-jet texturing capabilities and innovative texturing methods allow us to produce finished synthetics that look and feel like natural yarns, or provide products with unique and superior performance characteristics.

     

  • Package Dyeing

    Using the most advanced color-matching applications, we're able to match exact color specifications for even the most color-critical markets, such as home furnishings, automotive and specialized apparel. We dye many substrates including textured and spun polyester, rayon, cotton, acrylic, nylon and various blends of these fibers.
     

  • Covering

    By wrapping or air-entangling filament or spun yarns around a core yarn, we can significantly enhance a fabric's ability to stretch, recover its original shape and resist wrinkles. We use air covering, single covering and double covering.
     

  • Twisting

    We combine filaments into yarn by twisting them together for applications such as sewing thread, home furnishings and apparel.
     

  • Beaming

    We wind polyester and nylon, textured and flat yarn on to beams to be used by customers in warp knitting and weaving applications.

     

    • Innovation

      In the early 2000's, Unifi employed a new strategy to competitively position the company for the growing global competition. Unifi began investing in product innovation and marketing to provide its global customer base with differentiated products. Some of the new yarn developments included permanent properties such as odor control, UV protection and moisture management. As a part of the new marketing strategy, Unifi began branding its products with names like A.M.Y.®, MYNX® UV, SATURA®, SORBTEK® and the latest introduction, REPREVE®.
