The facility, in which METYX invested US$3.5 million, includes 30 acres of land and a 12,000m2 plant. The US operations in North Carolina, expected to employ up to 200 people in near future, are initially focused on setting up technical textiles production lines for manufacturing a range of glass and carbon fiber fabrics, along with sales, customer service and warehousing facilities to serve the North American composites market. As a next phase, in line with customer needs, fabric, core and vacuum consumable kit cutting capabilities will be added.
