STI has recently made investments to increase our domestic capacity by over 30 percent. This capital expenditure investment included yarn manufacturing equipment, new looms, and adding machinery in our finishing plant. STI has seen tremendous growth the past 5 years since they launched the Revolution Fabric brand. Their newest fabric line “ Revolution Outdoor Fabrics’ has picked up market share over the past 2 years and they believe that the growth in this space will continue. Post lockdown orders were the highest orders/ backlog that STI has seen in their 30 year history. We see a bright future in domestic textile and furniture manufacturing.
In the last year, STI has gotten away from the lead times that their customers have come to know them for. With this new expansion, they believe they will get back to their promise of quality fabrics, made in the U.S.A.
All equipment for the expansion will be fully operational and running by August of this year.
