MMI Textiles Expands Operations
MMI Textiles, with headquarters in Cleveland, Ohio, will open a 30,000-square-foot production facility in Lenoir, NC to begin producing select narrow fabrics during the first quarter of 2021 in an effort to improve quality and lead times. The main driver behind the new operation is MMI’s CTEdge Printed Narrow Fabrics that use patented technology to give the border of webbing and binding tape a more concealed edge, because it is woven with different color threads that allow it to blend into the materials behind it. According to the company, this product line has seen momentous growth over the last few years with sales on a global scale.
MMI president and founder Amy Bircher, states, “In addition to the investment in a new manufacturing facility, new equipment and new personnel, we have aligned with Mikan Printing, our existing print partner, to ensure quality control and timely delivery.”
MMI will hire new staff and acquire new equipment in Lenoir to ensure better control of the manufacturing process for this line. The new facility will house both MMI Textiles’ new manufacturing facility and Mikan’s print facility under one roof.
MMI Textiles is a woman-owned business enterprise with over 23 years of experience, offering a diverse textile portfolio for commercial, outdoor,, medical and military categories.
