Union Special is one of the world’s oldest industrial sewing machine brands. The company was formed 135 years ago in 1881 in Chicago, Illinois. Union Special’s sewing machines are used throughout the world in a wide range of applications including apparel and mattress production, bag closing, carpet, upholstery and geotextile.
Throughout its history, Union Special has been at the forefront of the sewing industry in development of new stitches, sewing automation and improved machine performance.
We have now partnered with the world’s leader in market share for automated CNC Cutting, YIN Group. Yin Group has a 75% market in China and a 30% worldwide market share in CNC cutting. Our study of the Western Hemisphere market and the USA market, in particular, shows that the marriage of Yin, with its high quality line of equipment and Union Special, with its well-known and trusted brand, provides a unique opportunity. We feel that the Yin / Union Special automation fits particularly well with customers that are looking at introducing automation as a way of improving their product quality and lowering their overall operating costs. All this for a fraction of the cost of current big name CNC cutters.
