Spinning people into yarn
Our new slogan of “Open up the future by spinning people into yarn” analogizes the way we turn customer needs into products, projects and businesses by connecting people with people to the process of twisting threads spun from cocoons into yarn and weaving that yarn into fabric. It additionally expresses our strong determination to work flexibly with customers in order to coauthor a new story that opens up the future to both them and us.
We will continue to grow into the company we aspire to be – liked and needed by our customers, suppliers, shareholders, employees and the local communities that host our operations.I hope for your continued patronage and support.
