Recycled yarns manufacturer Jimtex Yarns will open a new plant in Georgia next month after a huge fire destroyed its former factory in South Carolina, officials announced on Thursday.

The new 200,000 square foot factory, in Lincolnton, is more than twice the size of Jimtex's previous plant at Woodruff and was operated for many years by Mayfair Mills until earlier this year.

Up to 50 people will be employed at the plant from mid-October and company officials said the availability of a trained workforce was a deciding factor in their location.

Jimtex is the only US manufacturer exclusively dedicated to producing recycled open-end cotton blend yarns for apparel, upholstery and crafts. The cotton component is made from recycling pre-dyed cotton clippings, which are then blended with acrylic or polyester fibre.
