Inspecting pirns of textile nylon yarn
Careful inspection is given every pirn or shipping bobbin of textile nylon yarn before it is wrapped and packaged. The inspector is one of a large group that makes sure every package is in proper condition for the manufacturer when it leaves the DuPont plants at Seaford, Delaware; Martinsville, Virginia and Chattanooga, Tennessee. Nylon for tire cord and industrial product is made by Du Pont in Richmond, Virginia.
