With an investment in its next-generation Polyamide (PA) technology B.I.G Yarns is stepping up its focus on developing and producing one-step 3Ply PA yarns. With these yarns global carpet tile manufacturers meet the demands of the contract market. Total production capacity for one-step 3Ply yarns will increase by > 20% through new lines installed at the plant in France, creating higher output and greater supply security by serving customers from all 3 of its global plants.
The new lines use B.I.G. Yarns’ cutting-edge PA yarn technology which expands design, contrast and colour freedoms for carpet tile manufacturers, and increases flexibility in lot sizes. These advances enable customers to respond quickly to developments in the contract market. In addition, the new technology features a higher level of automation which improves ergonomics for B.I.G. Yarns’ employees. Importantly, it also optimizes energy use which contributes in energy savings at the French site specifically. The new production lines will be deployed from mid-2022.
To enhance support for a future of more sustainable automotive interiors, B.I.G. Yarns will enter PET yarn production for the first time and offer a portfolio of PET yarns by the 3rd quarter of 2022. These will be available for automotive applications alongside its EqoCycle recycled-based PA6 yarns.
B.I.G. YARNS is an independent entity within the family-owned business Beaulieu International Group, Wielsbeke/Belgium. The 2 announcements reinforce B.I.G. Yarns’ position in yarn innovation and commitment to changing end-market needs.
