Leigh Fibers, headquartered in Wellford, S.C., announced that it has purchased the operating assets of Martex Fiber and rebranded the business as Revive Fiber.

Leigh Fibers and Revive Fiber will operate as separate but related sister companies under joint management as the largest textile recycler in North America.

With multiple production facilities in South Carolina and one in Brownsville, Texas, the investment will expand capacity to meet growing production needs. All products will continue to be made in the U.S. while supporting industries throughout North America, South America and Europe.

“The acquisition of these assets will benefit customers of both companies. While the companies will remain separate, we have broadened and deepened our resources, improving our capabilities and expertise. Nobody else can provide the same breadth of products from recycled fibers, eco-friendly chemistry, toll manufacturing, and nonwoven solutions,” says Daniel Mason, co-owner of Leigh Fibers and the newly formed Revive Fiber.

The two companies provide solutions for textile recycling, from high-volume to specialty custom fibers, across industries including automotive, apparel, bedding and acoustic insulation. They are committed to helping organizations meet sustainability goals by diverting waste streams from landfills, allowing manufacturers to reduce waste and create new revenue opportunities.

“Sustainability is core to who we are,” Mason says. “We’re passionate about developing green solutions that are good for profit and the planet.”

Leigh Fibers and Revive Fibers have over 150 years of combined experience in textile recycling. Established in 1922, Leigh Fibers is a vertically integrated fiber and nonwoven provider providing customized support throughout the manufacturing process. Revive Fiber (formerly Martex Fiber) has been in the field of textile recycling since its founding in 1975 as a textile waste trading company. It provides textile waste management services to a variety of textile mills in North and Central America and the Caribbean.
