Unidad Textil Puente Set to Increase Production by June

November 30, -0001

TLALNEPANTLA, Mexico – Enrique Gabayet Ortega, general director of Unidad Textil Puente, reports that the company is preparing to step up their production by June.

UTP produces 230,000 meters a month and will move that up to 300,000 meters. "That's the real goal now," he said.

At this month's Heimtextil in Frankfurt, UTP introduced new fancy yarns that have proven very successful, thanks to the latest in Italian machinery that was added to their mill.

This was the company's sixth visit to the Heimtextil fair and Ortega said he is looking forward to their seventh next year.

UTP is a fully integrated and modernized mill, except for polyester and acrylic yarns. "Everything is pre-dyed," he said.

Due to a zero percent tax on European imports, thanks to the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), they are now selling to Italy, Germany, as well as the U.S. and Canada. "Because Mexico plays on both sides."

UTP is the oldest Mexican mill, producing jacquards since approximately 1942.

They decided to give themselves a face-lift in 1990, converting to the latest in technology "We have very nice prices. And I think we have very nice quality," Ortega said. A great combination.
