Unifi Inc

Business Description


Unifi, Inc., a New York corporation formed in 1969, is a multi-national company that manufactures and sells innovative synthetic and recycled products made from polyester and nylon primarily to other yarn manufacturers and knitters and weavers that produce fabric for the apparel, hosiery, home furnishings, automotive, industrial and other end-use markets. UNIFI’s polyester products include plastic bottle flake, polyester polymer beads (“Chip”), partially oriented yarn (“POY”), and textured, solution and package dyed, twisted, beamed and draw wound yarns. Each yarn product is available in virgin or recycled varieties, where the recycled varieties are made from both pre-consumer and post-consumer waste, including plastic bottles. UNIFI’s nylon products include textured, solution dyed and spandex covered yarns.

UNIFI maintains one of the textile industry’s most comprehensive yarn product offerings that include specialized yarns, premium value-added (“PVA”) yarns and commodity yarns, with principal geographic markets in the Americas and Asia.
UNIFI has manufacturing operations in four countries and participates in joint ventures in Israel and the United States, the most significant of which is a 34% non-controlling partnership interest in Parkdale America, LLC (“PAL”), a significant unconsolidated affiliate that produces cotton and synthetic yarns for sale to the global textile industry and apparel market. We believe the investment in PAL provides strategic diversification for UNIFI’s overall business in response to global textile trends. PAL is a limited liability company treated as a partnership for income tax reporting purposes.
UNIFI has three reportable segments:


The Polyester Segment sells polyester-based products primarily to other yarn manufacturers and knitters and weavers that produce yarn and/or fabric for the apparel, hosiery, home furnishings, automotive, industrial and other end-use markets. The Polyester Segment consists of sales and manufacturing operations in the United States and El Salvador.


The Nylon Segment sells nylon-based products to knitters and weavers that produce fabric primarily for the apparel and hosiery markets. The Nylon Segment consists of sales and manufacturing operations in the United States and Colombia.


The International Segment sells polyester-based products to knitters and weavers that produce fabric for the apparel, home furnishings, automotive, industrial and other end-use markets primarily in South America and Asia. The International Segment includes a manufacturing location in Brazil and sales offices in Brazil, China and Sri Lanka.

We believe UNIFI’s successful performance during recent fiscal years reflects the strength of our global initiative to deliver PVA products and solutions to customers and brand partners throughout the world. Our supply chain has been developed and enhanced in multiple regions of the globe, particularly in the Americas and Asia, allowing us to deliver a diverse range of synthetic fibers and polymers to key customers in the markets we serve, especially apparel. These polyester and nylon products are supported by quality assurance, product development and other customer service teams across UNIFI’s operating subsidiaries. We have developed this successful operating platform by: improving operational and business processes; enriching the product mix by growing sales of higher-margin PVA products; and deriving value from sustainability-based initiatives, including polyester and nylon recycling.


This platform has provided favorable results and growth in our core operations during recent fiscal years, and has been augmented by significant capital investments that support the production and delivery of sustainable and innovative solutions. In order to achieve further growth, UNIFI is committed to investing in four strategic and synergistic initiatives:


Commercial expansion;


Technology and innovation;


Strategic partnerships; and


People and teams.


Growth in commercial expansion involves capitalizing on the existing operational excellence and brand partnerships that underlie UNIFI’s core competencies. We believe that increasing the awareness for recycled solutions in applications across fibers and polymers, particularly with performance and aesthetic characteristics, and furthering sustainability-based initiatives with like-minded brand partners will be key to our future success. With leading technology for performance yarns and recycling that satisfies today’s consumers, UNIFI intends to continue to grow its commercial capabilities across global markets.


Establishing the existing portfolio of technologies and capabilities was a significant accomplishment, allowing REPREVE® to grow into a premier synthetic fiber. We believe that further commercial expansion will require a continued stream of new technology and innovation that generates products with consumer-meaningful benefits. Along with REPREVE®, the Company has significant yarn technologies that provide optimal performance characteristics for today’s marketplace, including moisture management, temperature moderation, and fire retardation. To achieve further growth, UNIFI plans to invest in expanding technology and innovation, bringing to market the next wave of fibers and polymers for tomorrow’s applications.


Growth will also require strategic partnerships. With a changing retail landscape and a dynamic consumer, brands are demanding fast fashion and localized supply chains. In order to capitalize on these shifts, we expect to identify, qualify and execute partnerships that expand our global footprint in strategic regions. As Central America and Asia remain significant components of the global supply chain, UNIFI will be diligent in exploring partnerships that advance our existing growth platform in these regions.
