Glen Raven purchases production facility in France

Glen Raven Custom Fabrics has purchased a new production facility in Valenciennes, France, an industrial hub city with easy access to transportation routes across Europe.

“Glen Raven is a 140-year-old company, and we remain steadfast in our commitment to serving our customers and investing in our collective business not just for today, but for the many years ahead,” said Dave Swers, president of Glen Raven Custom Fabrics.

“While the path forward is not linear,” he continued, “we recognized the need to pull forward some of our expansion plans so that we can provide the level of service our customers deserve and continue to satisfy end users’ desires for Sunbrella fabrics. We are committed to meeting the needs of our customers through creative sourcing, extended run schedules, enhanced systems and capacity expansions.”

Once converted to meet Glen Raven’s requirements, the facility in France is expected to be operational by the second half of next year. The site also allows for future production and distribution expansion.

The initial investment phase, started at the end of last year, included new and upgraded equipment to support the continuing growth of Sunbrella fabrics and other Glen Raven textile products in the company’s U.S. and Asia
