Knit Rite: Hamlet, NC

Knit-Rite, Inc. is a leading designer, marketer, and manufacturer of innovative textiles for medical and consumer markets.  Myers & Chapman was chosen early in the design process to be on the team to design and assist their new facility in Hamlet, NC.  Knit-Rite purchased a vacated 75,000 square foot plastic extrusion textile plant and the team completed an amazing transformation to their new state of the art textile facility.  M&C worked closely with the team to consider options to help make sure the facility met their objectives and was within budget.  A team from NCSU completed the plant layout using Lean manufacturing principles.  The construction involved extensive MPE work, including an air wash system to help keep the facility air clean.  Floors were coated with an epoxy floor coating for durability, low maintenance and light reflectivity. The facility includes production areas, warehousing, distribution, research lab, dying area, offices and employee lounge.
