Where We're Going

Universal FibersSM is committed to continuous innovation. From same-day sample delivery to the next breakthrough in bio-based fiber, Universal Fibers empowers all of its associates around the world to contribute ideas and solutions that help our customers stay ahead of the competition.

Our research and development goals reflect a tradition of industry leadership. Universal Fibers was the first to use solution-dyeing in a broad color palette, the first to introduce a number of recycling technologies, and the first to develop two product lines featuring sustainability goals.

    Refresh™: Refresh is made from a sophisticated multi-step process that takes post-consumer carpet and turns it back into usable Nylon 6,6 fiber, maximizing the use of an abundant resource that would otherwise likely end up in a landfill. Universal Fibers is the first in the industry to produce post-consumer Nylon 6,6 fiber.
    Rise™ featuring Dupont™ Sorona® : Rise is a renewably sourced polymer offering a rare combination of luxurious softness and styling attributes. With exceptional performance in wear and stain resistance, Rise also reduces dependency on oil and petrochemical-based feedstock.

The future of fiber production will see even more tailored customization, a Universal Fibers specialty. We start with the “What if ?” questions and focus on solving the problems that really matter. In this age of information technology, what seemed impossible yesterday can be almost instantly transformed into products. Filling those niches and emerging needs is our commitment, while valuing the world’s resources. We are eager and ready to meet these challenges, and strive to continuously exceed expectations.
