With ACA Threads having yarn dyeing and winding facilities and supplying various industries who utilize our yarns and threads, it is vital for us to ensure that we can remain a reliable partner to those industries. That is why continuous improvement is part of the ACA Threads DNA.
What is now ACA Threads, was started by Herbert Marshing as an import agency in 1953. By 1971 this had evolved into an industrial sewing thread manufacturing company, with a new custom-built factory, which is still proudly standing and operating, in Brackenfell, Cape Town, South Africa. In 1989, Herbert Marshing retired and his son, Eckhard, took over the management of the company.
The company is celebrating its 70th anniversary, with Eckhard at the helm for 34 of those years and we thought it was the perfect occasion to sit down with him and ask him some questions and share them with you.
