Enhancing product offerings and service delivery through smart business alignment

As one of the top industrial and embroidery thread suppliers and manufacturers in South Africa, we continually look for ways to improve our service and product offering. It is for this reason that, in 2011, we have acquired A&E - the South African subsidiary of the US industrial sewing thread manufacturer, American & Efird.

The acquisition allowed us to combine the respective technologies in order to better service local manufacturing businesses, and to have a more competitive edge in the South African sewing thread industry. ACA has the rights to producing A&E Anefil Twisted multifilament polyester sewing thread, while we import the polyester UV-resistant A&E Sunstop ® thread.

As one of the world’s foremost manufacturers of sewing thread, embroidery thread and technical textiles, American & Efird has a global presence that extends from Asia to Europe to the Americas. The scope of A&E’s international operations gives us valuable insight to world trends in sewing thread technology, while their contemporary quality principles and practices support our corporate values and production standards.

Our ties with a world-class company that has a highly regarded brand name, and exceptional reputation among global consumers, not only allow us to play a stronger leadership role as an industrial sewing thread supplier, but also enable us to provide our customers with a complete range of high quality sewing thread, produced in a sustainable and ethical manner.
