Local business, communal and government leaders joined Precision Textiles in September for the company’s grand opening of its new 160,000 square-foot plant located on a 25-acre campus.
After 34 years of manufacturing products domestically out of its headquarters facility in Totowa, N.J., Precision Textiles has formally opened its second manufacturing facility. The new plant is located near the facilities of many of the company’s customers in the bedding industry, a critical factor in Precision Textiles’ choice for the location of the site.
Once a textiles production plant that serviced the automobile industry, the Troy facility will eventually double the manufacturer’s needle-punch nonwovens production and boost its high-loft quilting fiber output by 50 percent. In addition to its production capacity, the facility includes warehousing space and will ultimately add 100 jobs to the Troy area.
Founded in 1987, Totowa, New Jersey-based Precision Textiles is a global supplier of coated fabrics, nonwovens and laminates for companies in the mattress, home furnishings, automotive and healthcare industries, as well as military apparel.
