Universal Fibers Inc. hosted more than 550 associates and their families at a special 40th anniversary event at the corporate headquarters in Bristol, Va. Total attendance for the two days was more than a thousand people on the company’s grounds at the Washington County Industrial Park.
Production began at the company’s Bristol headquarters in 1970, known at the time as CAMAC. The name was changed to Universal Fibers in 1999, and in the past decade the company has opened plants in both Thailand and China. “I have learned that machines, although important, don’t make a company,” says Marc Ammen, CEO. “People make a company and make products. That’s why we are still in business and still growing, and that’s what this celebration is about: our associates.”
Universal Fibers is a multi-platform producer of solution-dyed synthetic yarns for the commercial, residential, transportation and textile market and is ISO 14001 certified.
