World’s Only Vertically Integrated N66 Supplier
N66 is a highly differentiated and high-value textile product with strict standards regarding raw materials, technology, production process and management. The production of N66 requires high thresholds and the market is currently oligopolistic with few suppliers. With a strong backbone of vertically integrated polyester supply chain, FENC has amassed rich experiences in supplying for international brands. By integrating the strengths from FEFC, FEIS, FEDZ, FEAZ and FEAV, the Company constructed a supply chain capable of producing a wide range of products, from the POY, DTY, high stretch fabric to yoga apparel, becoming the only vertically integrated N66 supplier in the world.
N66 products are susceptible to deterioration caused by ultraviolet light, high temperature and metal abrasion. Compared to other chemical fibers, the production of N66 is much more challenging. FEIS built machine shops with temperature and humidity control and a DTY production line specifically for N66; FEDZ installed a circular knitting machine with high yarn counts as well as dyeing and finishing equipment. Staff utilized production and quality management technologies with quality assurance to set up N66 operation and the SOP for inspection. The production process and storage conditions are strictly controlled to ensure consistent quality. The yield rate of FENC’s N66 DTY reached 93%, which is higher than the industry average of 85%. FENC’s breakthroughs in the quality of solution dye greatly reduced water consumption during the dyeing and finishing process, thus giving the Company a competitive advantage.
FENC’s vertically integrated supply chain for N66 produces high-quality products with a short lead time for delivery. The product is favored by lululemon, the yoga apparel brand which made FENC a strategic partner. In 2021, orders from lululemon increased dramatically, increasing 9 times compared to 2018.
