Martex to rebuild facility destroyed by fire.

After a fire last July destroyed most of its 100,000 sq. foot facility, textile waste reprocessor Martex Fiber, Spartanburg, SC, has made the decision to rebuild. The rebuilding and expansion will be conducted in two phases. The first, which began in February, involves doubling capacity to 50 million pounds per year and hiring 40 people; the second phase, which increases production to 100 million pounds and adds 40 more employees, will begin in June.

Martex uses the reprocessed textile waste to make recycled textile products that target applications such as home furnishings, carpet underlay and automotive products.
