Unifi Inc. has announced the expansion of its REPREVE® Recycling Center, which opened in Yadkinville, N.C., in May, 2010. Recycling capacity at the REPREVE Recycling Center will increase from 42 million pounds to 72 million pounds annually. This increase is being driven by demand from new customer adoptions with companies such as Ford, The North Face, Nike, Volcom and Patagonia.

The largest and fastest growing segments for REPREVE continue to be apparel and automotive. The expansion increases the availability of REPREVE product offerings such as lower deniers that support lighter-weight fashion trends, flame retardant yarns and WaterWise™ color technology.

The recent $5 million capital expenditure brings the total investment in the REPREVE Recycling Center, since its opening, to $15 million. The expansion is expected to create 10 new jobs.
