Yazoo Mills will be making its first debut as an exhibitor at the IFAI Expo, the premier industrial fabrics expo in North America.  The event is organized by Industrial Fabrics Association International and will take place at the Charlotte Convention Center in Charlotte, NC, with the show floor open October 19-21, 2016.

With thousands of attendees and more than 400 exhibitors, IFAI Expo has been the foundation of providing the specialty fabrics industry a forum for commerce, networking, and knowledge.  With the addition of advanced textiles and an all-new shade area from 2015, the show continues to grow and service all aspects of the industry.

The expo will feature three special areas located on the show room floor; Specialty Fabrics, Advanced Textiles, and Shade & Weather Protection.  Yazoo will be located in the Advanced Textiles area at booth #A540.  We look forward to connecting and educating attendees on how Yazoo can satisfy your paper core needs.

     

We have been a longtime supporter and donor of countless non-profit organizations that raise money to find cures. Recently, we donated cores to AB Graphic, a leader in the label printing industry, who partnered up with other companies to help print stickers for the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.

Labels and Labeling says “The donated stickers will be printed at Innovative Labeling Solutions in Ohio and Nosco in Illinois prior to the show. HP Indigo will handle some printing on site, and AB Graphic will convert the stickers on its Digicon Series 3 finishing unit that will be on display in their booth (#3223). More than 350,000 stickers will be printed and donated to the National MS Society. That’s 210,000 feet of material that normally would be thrown in the trash going to a good cause.

The bulk of the printed jobs will be 2-inch round stickers to be used at the organization’s Walk MS or Bike MS events, which happen in cities across the US. Rectangle runner’s bibs also will be printed.

The National MS Society is America’s leading charity organization dedicated to multiple sclerosis research, education and advocacy. The society’s fundraising events raise money to fund research, support groups and lobbying efforts.

AB Graphic and HP Indigo have partnered with Acpo, Actega, Rotometrics and Yazoo Mills for this cause, and all have donated materials or services.”

Multiple sclerosis, or MS, is a disease affecting the central nervous system. According to the National MS Society, MS is thought to be an immune-mediated disorder, in which the
immune system incorrectly attacks healthy tissue in the central nervous system.  The society says that MS affects more than 2.3 million people worldwide.

The concept to donate printed labels came from Tony Bell of AB Graphic and Alon Bar-Shany of HP. Choosing the National MS Society as the beneficiary was an idea came from AB Graphic
operations manager Tim Staples.

“We’ve never done anything on this scale and with a large nonprofit,” Staples said. “We wanted to do something where we weren’t throwing away 20,000 meters of material a day. So much of this material is gone to waste.”

Staples continued: “Most of it is going in the trash. If a nonprofit organization can use these products, then it’s a win-win-win. We get to show our equipment, it’s a tax deduction for manufacturers, and it’s a great relief on these nonprofits.”

The initiative also is a ‘personal crusade’ for Staples, who was diagnosed with MS in May after what he first believed were complications from Lasik eye surgery. He lost sight in half of his eye, and when he went back to the eye doctor, he was sent for a brain scan that detected MS.

After the diagnosis he turned to the MS Society for help in understanding the disease.

“There’s a lot of information out there, but the reputable information comes from the National MS Society,” he said.

MS can cause many symptoms.  Currently, there is no cure for MS, but treatments are available to reduce the number of relapses and delaying the progression of disability.”

We are proud to have our business located in the wonderful town of New Oxford, Pennsylvania for the past 35 years.  There is plenty of history behind our quaint little town and our community is working hard to help preserve some of the historical buildings so the generations to come can learn about the important past of New Oxford.

Located on a roughly 1-acre property in New Oxford, sits the borough’s 102-year-old train station, complete with a red caboose, an old mail car and even a still-operating CSX rail line.  This railroad station has produced many stories that have been passed down over the years through previous employees and the large amount of volunteers.  Pieces of the train station’s history are what’s important to the community members and volunteers.  In order to ensure that the station is around for future generations means buying the property it sits on from its current owner, CSX.  The downfall is, it’s going to cost $40,000 to purchase.

The New Oxford Area Historical Society created the All Aboard! campaign in June of 2014.  The society, in conjunction with the Borough of New Oxford, has undertaken a community campaign to raise funds to purchase the Borough’s beloved history railroad property.

Yazoo Mills has been a huge supporter of many fundraising events in New Oxford for a very long time.  We recognize how important the historic train station is to the community, which is why we donated $1,000 to the All Aboard! campaign.  With our contribution, as well as many other local companies, the campaign is nearing close to their goal of $40,000.  We are proud to support the campaign and excited to watch them continue to preserve the train station.
