Martex Fiber has been innovating in the field of textile recycling since its founding in 1970 as a textile waste trading company. Through its long history, Martex Fiber has grown to be a respected leader in textile waste management, and can now provide the highest quality textile waste management services to a wide variety of textile mills in North and Central America and the Caribbean.

“In the end, our society will be defined not only by what we create, but by what we refuse to destroy.” – John C Sawhill

In addition, the company has expanded its manufacturing facilities to provide high-quality reclaimed fibers made from both pre-consumer and post-consumer waste and cotton-rich recycled yarn blends through its Jimtex Yarns division for a wide range of applications.

Our innovative 360° recycling process ensures complete recycling of textile waste, ensuring that textile waste can be recycled, no matter which stage of manufacturing or end use.

Throughout its history, Martex Fiber has been dedicated to the environment, which is why the company uses no wet processing and has a No Fiber Left Behind Pledge, guaranteeing that all waste purchased will be recycled.

Whether you need textile waste management services, textile byproducts, reclaimed fibers or recycled yarn, Martex Fiber has the experience and capability to provide just what you need.
