Aurora Specialty opens high-tech facility
Aurora Specialty Textiles, a leader in coating, dyeing and finishing of both woven and nonwoven fabrics, has opened a new high-tech manufacturing facility in Yorkville, US, which features the EHWHA ultra wide-width coating and finishing line. The plant is spread over 1,24,000 sq ft area.
The EHWHA ultra wide-width coating and finishing line works with a broad range of woven and nonwoven materials up to 134-inch wide. It enhances Aurora’s ability to serve both current and new customers, including those in the print media industry.
“Today is a tremendous day for Aurora Specialty Textile Group. It marks the symbolic end of our transition from the Aurora plant to our new Yorkville operation, and the beginning of a new, exciting era. We’ve been committed to becoming a global leader in wide-width coating and finishing and this new plant, which could not operate today without the hard work of the people here, is testament to what we are calling today ‘The New Aurora’,” said Dan LaTurno, President, Aurora.
