Unifi, Inc. is expanding its Repreve Recycling Center, which opened in Yadkinville, North Carolina 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 expansion is expected to create 10 new jobs including 2 salary shift managers, 4 hourly operators and 4 hourly material handlers. The recent $5 million capital expenditure brings the total investment in the Repreve Recycling Center, since its opening in 2010, to $15 million.

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, FR Flame Retardant yarns and WaterWise™ color technology.
