Agru America has expanded its textile capabilities with the acquisition of assets of the Performance Fabrics & Fibers plant in Andrews, SC, as of January 27, 2012. Products manufactured consist of geotextiles, fabrics, fibers and the trademarked BlaZbarrier, a flame retardant barrier fabric, all of which are now part of the Agru America family of products.

The Andrews plant contains a burn center where burn tests are regularly performed and documented to industry safety regulations. BlaZbarrier has been manufactured at this location since the inception of the 2007 federal legislation for flame retardant fabrics in mattresses.

A leading US manufacturer of geosynthetics since 1988, Agru America is committed to product quality and service excellence. With this acquisition Agru America is expanding its role as a supplier of quality, high performance products. Agru America is headquartered in Georgetown, SC, with factories in Georgetown, SC, Fernley, NV and now Andrews, SC.

Agru America is part of Alois Gruber GmbH, a family owned business with production and distribution facilities worldwide.
