Sigmatex Accelerates Consolidation of US Operations

October 05 (2020

As a result of changes in demand linked to COVID-19, Sigmatex will accelerate its plans to consolidate its operational footprint in the US creating a Centre of Excellence at its purpose-built plant in Orangeburg, South Carolina.

The large, modern, Orangeburg plant was purpose built in 2016 as part of the Group’s growth strategy. It offers significant expansion potential and already houses a state-of-the-art weaving cell and multiaxial cell. As part of the consolidation process, Sigmatex will be increasing its weaving capacity and additional investment made in innovative technologies to support strong and sustainable growth into new industrial sectors.

The culmination of this plan will see the relocation taking place gradually, prioritizing customer requirements and transitioning manufacturing in a controlled and coordinated way. To support the consolidation, Sigmatex will introduce regional distribution hubs to ensure short lead-times are available.

Commenting on the restructuring process, Paul McMullan, Group CEO said, “The creation of one large, agile and efficient operational base that embraces true manufacturing excellence practices will strengthen our value proposition and enable us to better meet the needs of our current and future customers.”
