A leader in the coating and finishing of both woven and non-woven fabrics, Aurora Specialty Textiles Group has rightfully earned its reputation as a world-class textile finisher. An innovative provider of textile solutions for more than 100 years, this Illinois-based company creates fabrics for an extensive and diversified list of end-use applications and markets, including print media, pressure sensitive tapes, home furnishings, medical and industrial. Evolving from its roots as a cotton-spinning mill, Aurora Specialty Textiles Group has a breadth of manufacturing and technical capabilities as deep as any found in the textile industry today.
Aurora recently acquired a 125,000 square foot facility on 15 acres of land outside of Chicago and is in the process of moving all existing manufacturing operations and administrative functions to that site. In addition, a new, state-of-the-art 134" wide-width coating and finishing line has also been installed that allows Aurora to increase the depth of its coating capabilities and technologies and significantly expand its product lines.
