When not on-site at your mill, our EFS
available for technical support via e-mail, phone, or
Staff are located in the company
headquarters in Cary, North Carolina as well as in
the Mexico City and Hong Kong offices.
In addition to enjoying cost reductions, mill managers in a
2014 case study reported that they found more time to
focus on other technical challenges.
In a 2016 case study, the mill was
projected to save 787,000 US
dollars by opening up their entire
inventory for mix selection rather
than being forced to keep
separate inventories for ring and
open-end yarns. They also cut
cost from the reduced necessity
to carry a large on-hand inventory.
