Textile Technology Center Lab Textile Technology Center - 4

For over 70 years, textile and fiber companies have gone to the Textile Technology Center in Belmont, NC when they needed a centralized source of technical support for their businesses. Since its inception in 1943, the Center has played a significant role in helping the North Carolina textile industry remain competitive, manufacture quality products and maintain a well-trained workforce.

Over time, the areas of need within the textile firms have changed and evolved, but the Center has always remained flexible and evolved along with the need.

Today, with input from an advisory board of textile professionals from across the state, the Textile Center focuses on providing testing services, product prototyping and sample production in several areas.

The Textile Technology Center strives to provide the most up to date solutions to fiber producers, textile and apparel manufacturers, and retailers most specialized needs.
