Propex consolidates production

August 1st, 2013 / By: / Industry News

Propex Operating Company LLC, based in Chattanooga, Tenn., will close its Nashville, Ga., plant and consolidate its production of woven geotextile carpet backing in its manufacturing facility in Hazlehurst, Ga., over the next few months. Demand for Propex products has declined because of federal defense cuts, the end of federal stimulus programs and an industry shift to nonwoven products. The company plans to expand the Hazlehurst plant’s capacity to produce Isis®, a recycled polyester woven backing for commercial carpet tile.
