From DuPont's new $40,000,000 plant for making Dacron polyester fiber, these packages of the fiber start their journey to textile manufacturers. The textile trade will convert, weave and knit this Dacron into apparel fabrics and also fabrics for household and industrial uses. The plant at Kinston, North Carolina was completed in March of 1953. It is the newest of eight plants operated by the company's Textile Fibers Department.
Dacron polyester fiber rolls off the shipping line at DuPont's Kinston, North Carolina and Old Hickory, Tennessee plants. Here a special telescope type container lid is slipped over the yarn to protect it in transport to the customers' mills. Dacron, which was first produced commercially in 1953, has found wide acceptance in textile and industrial products fields.
