Multifilament

With our modern extrusion capabilities we can supply our customers with a diverse portfolio of multifilament yarns.  We routinely produce multifilament yarns such as “Bico” multifilament and “Islands in the Sea” in a wide range of engineered performance characteristics.  Order size is not an issue – we can produce large orders or small – our just-in-time manufacturing processes allow us to meet even the most stringent of deadlines.
