Cincinnati – Standard Textile Co.’s new domestically-made bed and bath hospitality program is the result of its recent investments in state-of-the art manufacturing.

The company today debuts its Made in USA collection of terry towels and twill sheeting products engineered for hotels and hospitality properties.


Standard Textile noted this new collection “supports American innovation, domestic growth and smaller carbon footprints.”

In 2015, Standard Textile launched its Manufacturing 4.0 initiative and invested more than $65 million in its facilities in Thomaston, Ga., and Union, S.C. “to bring new life—through advanced manufacturing—to American textile production,” the company explained.


Smart technologies, including state-of-the-art machinery, automation, robotics, vision control systems, advanced analytics and the Internet of Things have been implemented to readily control every level of the company’s supply chain.


“Our goal has always been to push the boundaries of what textile manufacturing in the United States can achieve, combining real-time data exchange with advanced automation, robotics and vision controls,” explained Gary Heiman, president and CEO. “Our smart manufacturing investments have allowed us to optimize every level of our manufacturing and logistics process, and to keep production closely connected to our research and development.”


The new Made in USA products were designed to offer hoteliers “unsurpassed durability, superior cost management and a luxuriously soft hand” that is all backed by patented technologies.


These products also aim to motivate hoteliers to apply sustainable solutions through “Real Green,” an innovative processing, production and performance system developed by Standard Textile.


The collection’s “ForeverSoft” towels feature an ultra-soft pile yarn specifically engineered to be softer than traditional100% cotton towels as well as dry faster.


An advanced weaving technology helped develop the “Transitions” terry, a high-quality towel with the highest pile in the centermost parts of the towel.


And for bedding, there is the new “UltraTwill” sheets and pillowcases collection.


“Hotel linens elevate the guest experience and with the launch of these three new products, our customers receive linens that not only make their guests happy, but also make sense operationally and from a sustainability standpoint,” added Richard Stewart, corporate vp/product development & sustainability.
