BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich. — The Crypton Companies (Crypton LLC and Nanotex LLC),
providers of performance textiles in the contract, home furnishings, and apparel markets,  has acquired Abercrombie
Textiles, a textile mill in Cliffside, N.C., from owner John Regan.

Regan will remain with the company, Crypton said.

Lance Keziah, president of Crypton, will oversee the company and has tapped industry veteran, Ernest Benbassat, as the executive vice president of operations.

“We’ve worked with Ernest for several years,” Keziah says. “He is absolutely the right guy for the job as he embodies the passion and operational leadership to take Abercrombie to  the next level.”

“We’re bringing together an American mill and an American textile innovator that will not only preserve jobs but will also create growth and generate new opportunities for American-made textiles.”

He added that Crypton is immediately infusing capital into the company and has been working closely with all suppliers and customers to ensure a smooth transition.

Crypton will also be expanding Abercrombie into new markets. 

“All of this innovation and expansion means we’ll be positioned to create more jobs for American textile workers,” he says.

Since its inception, Crypton has been committed to supporting American mills. Abercrombie has been working with Crypton for 17 years as a licensed mill partner, Keziah says.

Under Crypton, Abercrombie Textiles will continue to manufacture dobby and jacquard fabrics for a variety of applications, including upholstery, bedding, wallcovering, cubicles and drapery for commercial, residential and transportation markets.
