Lewco acquires facility in Ridgeway, S.C. - Friday, February 20, 2009
Carolina technical Fabrics FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

RIDGEWAY, S.C. — Lewco Specialty Products of Baton Rouge, La., has acquired the former Givdi /SGTF-Bay Mills/OCV weaving facility in Ridgeway, S.C. This location will operate under the name of Carolina Technical Fabrics Inc. This facility, a green-field site, was originally commissioned in 1996 to produce high quality, cost-effective, electronic-grade fiberglass fabrics for the PCB industry. This location is a fully integrated textile facility featuring state-of-the-art yarn prep, weaving and finishing capabilities.

"It is our vision to bring these advantages of high quality, product consistency and cost effectiveness back to the domestic users of fiberglass fabrics," said Lewis Dill, president and CEO of both Carolina Technical Fabrics and Lewco Specialty Products, Inc. "We service the coating and laminating, composite and insulation markets with the responsiveness and reliability of a small North American company"

"When the electronic industry moved offshore, many of the larger companies abandoned their smaller industrial customers, forcing them to find alternative sourcing, pay higher prices and compromise the quality of their own products," Dill said. "We believe, in today’s difficult and unpredictable economy, importing products from Asia with questionable quality, container load quantities with long lead times no longer makes sense. It is more important than ever to have a domestic supplier that is a reliable and responsive partner.”

Carolina Technical Fabrics will offer consumers:
  • Highest quality, most cost effective fiberglass fabrics available
  • Broad standard product line with a large ready to ship inventory
  • Flexible and responsive manufacturing of custom fabric styles in various widths
  • Variety of resin compatible finishes and treatments
  • Knowledgeable technical staff and sales team
  • Compliance with NFTA and Berry Amendment as well as BMS, ASTM and Various Mil-Specifications.
