Uniquetex is a China-based company that specializes in engineered nonwovens. These high-tech textiles are used across a wide range of applications and products—from automobiles and medical masks to mattresses and grocery store bags. Uniquetex is a joint venture between one of China’s largest nonwoven textile businesses, Foshan Nanhai Beautiful Nonwoven Co., and a major developer of equipment and technologies for nonwoven textile manufacturing, Wenzhou Chaolong Textile Machinery Co.
In March 2016, Uniquetex purchased a 360,000-square-foot building, which is situated on 100 acres of land in Grover, North Carolina, to establish its first U.S. production facility in Cleveland County. With an investment totaling $31.6 million, the new operations will include six manufacturing lines and 150 workers over the next five years. Uniquetex selected Cleveland County for its skilled workforce, access to transportation infrastructure and pro-business environment.
Uniquetex is proud to establish its first U.S. production facility in North Carolina, which is home to a large and growing nonwoven textile industry. The new facility will specialize in producing the raw materials used to create the nonwoven products, which are then used across a variety of applications and industries, including automotive, medical and consumer. Uniquetex is a startup company with major, highly established parent companies and, as such, offers employees a unique combination of exciting opportunity and stability. Workers at the new facility will have the chance to be part of the growth of a new company, combined with the security of a benefits package, including health, vision, dental and on-the-job training opportunities.
