Navis TubeTex is to act as the agency for Thies dyeing machines, chemical dispensing units and heat recovery systems in Canada, Honduras, and the USA.

Based in Lexington, North Carolina and founded in 1929, Navis TubeTex already offers a diverse range of machines for tubular and open-width textile finishing. The addition of Thies machines broadens its offering to include yarn and fabric dyeing.

“Having the ability to sell the Thies range of machinery will enhance our customers’ abilities to add value, save money through automation and reduce environmental impacts from manufacturing,” said Will Motchar, Navis TubeTex president and CEO. “We’re being asked routinely how our technologies can help meet financial and environmental goals, and Thies helps strengthen our ability to respond.”

Thies began production in 1892 in Coesfeld, Germany where production is ongoing, and has a wholly-owned subsidiary in Rock Hill, South Carolina.

“We’re excited to have such an established company representing us,” added Thies CEO Verena Thies. “As a fifth-generation owner-managed company, we understand the importance of strategic alliances and long-term vision. Navis TubeTex is the perfect pathway to engage with customers for custom solutions in eco-friendly innovation, digitization, and automation.”
