New Life for Textile Waste

When a new non-woven process for molded automotive wheel wells started in 2020, our Gillespie, Union, SC plant associates embraced the opportunity to reinvent the way scrap waste would be handled.

Processing nearly 10,000 pounds per month, our new recycling system converts scrap back into fiber that can be used to remake the original product. This keeps disposal trucks off the road and reduces our use of virgin material.

Building on what they’ve learned from this innovation, the Gillespie team is scaling in-house recycling to handle more waste in the future.
