Americhem Inc., a global provider of custom color and additive solutions for synthetic fibers, recently added three compounding lines at its Concord, North Carolina facility, ensuring continuous supply and shortened lead times for the growing polyester bulk continuous filament (BCF) market. This is the company’s second capacity expansion in the past three years at the North Carolina plant.

Two of the new lines are optimized to produce high-quality, consistent products in large lot sizes for the polyester floor covering industry, while the third line is designed to handle the textile industry’s critical specifications and small lot sizes. Additionally, Americhem has added new technologies in the pre- and post-extrusion processes to provide optimal product consistency.
