Leigh Fibers to shutter its Montreal fiber processing facility
Home Textiles Today Staff -- Home Textiles Today, 11/4/2011 2:32:01 PM
Spartanburg, S.C. - Hurt by the declining number of customers for recycled textiles in Canada and the northeastern United States, Leigh Fibers said it plans to cease operation of its "Leigh Textile Company" fiber reprocessing facility in Montreal by year-end.
"It was a difficult decision to close an operation that has been part of the Leigh family since 1948," said Keith Taylor, president of Leigh Fibers. "But so many customers in this region have gone out of business in the last few years, or substantially reduced their volume, that the plant can no longer operate profitably."
Taylor said remaining Leigh Textiles customers will be served from the Leigh Fibers facility in Wellford, S.C., which has a capacity of one million pounds a day. The company claims to be North America's largest fiber reprocessing operation.
