Company Profile

Seaway Yarns was established by Joe Ariagno in 1990, operating out of a heritage industrial complex along the St. Lawrence Seaway in Cornwall, Ontario. Since its inception, the company has built its market share in the industrial and specialty yarn market, earning a reputation for quality products at competitive prices.

In 1996 the company moved into a modern 40,000 sq. ft. facility in Cornwall's industrial park. This move positioned Seaway Yarns to pursue new growth opportunities, and at the same time allowed the company to achieve new efficiencies in its manufacturing processes. A 24,000 sq. ft addition was constructed in 2003, allowing us to increase our production capacity and rendering a more efficient plant layout.

We remain committed to the Cornwall area, and to growing our business. We continue to seek and install new equipment to improve our processes. New equipment must enhance our quality, safety, flexibility, & production, while reducing our costs. Twisting continues to remain our core business. However, we have also branched into new areas such as air entangling, dyeing & more recently more air jet texturing.
