The Resurgence of the US Textile Industry

The US Textile Industry is making a comeback.  After decades that have seen companies merge with competitors just to stay alive, or in the worst case, close their doors for good, US textile manufacturers have customers that are bringing programs back from Asia for domestic production.

Yes, the costs of manufacturing are increasing in China and surrounding countries.  But that is not nearly the crux of the problem.  Today, in the retail arena of the US, speed-to-market is essential.  Retailers need to have the correct inventory in place for their customers and they need to be able to quickly replenish hot-selling styles.  A manufacturing base in Asia makes this challenge extremely difficulty to meet.

For some time, the survivors in the US textile manufacturing arena have remained viable byUrethane Foam Auxiliaries offering innovative products and concepts at competitive costs.  From a service standpoint, rapid response has been the battle cry of a US industry struggling to prevent extinction.

And now the tide is turning.  The pendulum is swinging back in the direction of the United States, along with the whole of North America and parts of Central America.  The question is who will be ready to gear up to participate and service this resurgence of our industry?
