According to Will Motchar, Navis TubeTex President and CEO, “Having the ability to sell Thies’ line-up of machinery will enhance our customers’ abilities to add value, save money through automation, and reduce environmental impacts from manufacturing. We’re being asked routinely how our technologies can help meet financial and environmental goals, and Thies helps strengthen our ability to respond.” Based in Lexington, NC and founded in 1929, Navis TubeTex offers a diverse range of machines for tubular and open-width textile finishing. The addition of Thies machines broadens its offering to include yarn and fabric dyeing.
