Sustainability Practices

We have taken steps to reduce our environmental footprint by improving our efficiency and changing how we manage waste.  Using analytics, we constantly look for opportunities to improve our processes, from start to finish.  We have upgraded our lighting throughout the plant with more energy efficient fluorescent bulbs in addition to new heating/air conditioning units.  Our goal is to reduce energy consumption and increase value for our shareholders while remaining steadfast in our commitment to environmental consciousness.  We also recycle byproducts such as cardboard tubes, boxes, scrap yarn, rag waste, plastic and paper products.
