Thanks to everyone who continues to have us process their fiber … we appreciate it. As you know, we try to accommodate as many customer orders as possible by not only utilizing our reservation system but also by maintaining a work-in list for certain types of jobs (wash-pick-card). Our work-in list is ready to re-open and we will begin accepting work-in jobs in January, 2019. If you have some processing that fits the criteria and would like to be on the list, please contact us as soon as possible. The work-in list can fill up quickly. Thank you!

Work-In List Closed for Remainder of 2018

July 18th, 2018

Thanks to everyone who continues to have us process their fiber … we appreciate it. As you know, we try to accommodate as many customer orders as possible by not only utilizing our reservation system but by maintaining a work-in list for certain types of jobs (wash-pick-card). Our work-in list is now quite long and as a result we are temporarily halting the acceptance of any additional work-in jobs for the remainder of 2018. If it looks like we are getting thru that list faster than anticipated, we will re-open it as soon as possible. Thank you!
