Repreve Renewables celebrated the official opening of its North Carolina processing center today with a ribbon cutting and plant tour of its Seven Springs, NC plant. The Company is committed to building local economies, while providing customers with reliable and cost effective feedstock solutions. The new plant created eight full-time and 40 seasonal jobs.  Currently, REPREVE RENEWABLES has developed thousands of acres of production across the U.S., with a portion of its production focused on a new and innovative poultry bedding product.

“The Wayne County Development Alliance (WCDA) was excited to partner with REPREVE RENEWABLES  to become the first Wayne County industry to benefit from a new incentive policy recently approved by the Board of Commissioners,” said Chuck Allen, Wayne County Development Alliance Board Chairman.  “The WCDA looks forward to working with REPREVE RENEWABLES now that they are an existing Wayne County industry. We will do everything we can to help make sure REPREVE RENEWABLES prospers in Wayne County.” 

Bill Pate, Wayne County commissioner added, “We are certainly glad to have REPREVE RENEWABLES as a new industry in Wayne County.  Agriculture and agribusiness are at the heart of who we are as a county. REPREVE RENEWABLES’ growing and manufacturing processes help our farmers, our poultry end users and our Wayne County workers.  REPREVE RENEWABLES touches many aspects of our farming community, and we are glad they are here.”

“The opening of the N.C. processing center solidifies REPREVE RENEWABLES’ commitment to investing in the future of biomass and the industries it serves,” said Travis Hedrick, Chief Executive Officer for REPREVE RENEWABLES. “The processing center utilizes state-of-the-art equipment providing us with the flexibility and scale to further expand REPREVE RENEWABLES in new and innovative directions.”
