THE GLOBAL LEADER IN MANUFACTURING EXCELLENCE

YESTERDAY. TODAY. TOMORROW.

Family owned and operated since 1843, KENTWOOL has earned a reputation as being a manufacturing pioneer. As an innovative textile leader based in South Carolina, KENTWOOL has developed a truly state-of-the-art wool-based yarn spinning operation that produces the highest quality yarns in the industry.

KENTWOOL is the only company in America-and one of just 66 in the world-to receive the Usterized Quality Certification, indicating the highest level of quality assurance in yarn production.

Based in Greenville, SC, all KENTWOOL products are made in the USA.

KENTWOOL's bold vision of being a global leader in wool-based manufacturing is fueled by a commitment to being Best in Class in all key areas of performance - quality, service and innovation. We continue to lead the way because of: 1) successful product differentiation in the marketplace, 2) an unwavering commitment to quality manufacturing, and 3) strong, deeply embedded relationships with globally recognized partners.

We continue to embark on a visionary pathway to remain the premier global wool innovation company. Through up-to-the-minute market analysis, ongoing "operational excellence" initiatives, and constant research and development, KENTWOOL has embodied commitment to continuous improvement since day one. That passion remains as true today as it was then.

GLOBAL WOOL INNOVATION

Factory for Kent Manufacturing

Built On Quality.
Meeting the Demand.

Quality matters. Now more than ever. No one knows that better than KENTWOOL Manufacturing. After all, our company was founded on quality way back in 1843 by Thomas Kent, and we're still family-owned to this day.

Over the past century-and-a-half, one thing has remained constant: our unwavering commitment to quality and innovation. Covering a wide gamut of wool manufacturing - in the knitting, spinning, weaving, and industrial markets - we produce the finest, most advanced and dependable yarns you can find.

LEADING THE WAY THROUGH INNOVATION

 

The Latest Technology = Lasting Quality

KENTWOOL is committed to the ongoing modernization of its 100,000+ square-foot manufacturing facility, located in Pickens, SC. The state-of-the-art wool-based yarn spinning operation serves a diversified international customer base, covering the knitting, spinning, weaving and industrial textile markets. The result: the finest quality yarn in the world.

Usterized Quality Certification

KENTWOOL is the only company in the USA-and one of 66 in the world-to receive the Usterized Quality Certification indicating the highest level of quality assurance in yarn production.

The USTERIZED brand is only awarded to spinning mills that:

  • Have been audited by Uster Technologies.
  • Are able to produce products of consistent, defined quality.
  • Have a quality management system with a continuous improvement process.
  • Provide accurate, reproducible quality data continuously, reliably and accurately, which is comparable with the USTER STATISTICS, the only globally-accepted quality benchmark.

ONGOING MANUFACTURING PROCESSES

NEW & BETTER WAYS

R&D: ONGOING COMMITMENT

Maintaining our reputation as a global leader requires an adherence to seeking out new and better ways to manufacture wool-based yarn. Such committment also involves a concerted effort to seek out new markets and opportunities based on need and demand.

R&D: MILLITARY / ARMED FORCES

KENTWOOL is dedicated to ongoing Research and Development, resulting in the creation of innovative, high tech garments for use by the United States military.

A True Commitment To Sustainability

Commitment to sustainability by Kentwool Manufacturing

While some companies pay lip service to being "green" or sustainable, KENTWOOL actually walks the walk. In 2009, KENTWOOL installed a solar electricity generation system at its North American manufacturing complex located in Pickens County.

The state-of-the-art 15.6 kW solar electric system is unique among South Carolina manufacturers. The leading edge design-which creates electricity from sunlight-incorporates 72 photovoltaic panels mounted on a series of poles which track sunlight east to west during the day. The phase 1 installation generates enough power to offset all office and corporate functions of KENTWOOL's 100,000 square-foot Upstate SC operations base.

The initial installation maximizes output and minimizes cost per watt produced, and is designed for expansion that could substantially offset manufacturing processing power requirements in the future.
