NC Carpet Binding—a manufacturer of sewing machines used for fabricating business aircraft carpeting and upholstery—has entered into an agreement with ABM International, which makes stitching sewing machines, to distribute the latter’s CNC stitching equipment. The CNC quilters can, with just one operator, sew up complete seatback patterns with precision and accuracy with a push of a button, according to the companies.
“Most of our clients are looking to streamline their sewing operation, and we feel ABM’s machine options and unrivaled service can’t be matched,” said Mal Maher, NC Carpet’s CEO. He added that “many of their key components are U.S.-made.”
Those purchasing an ABM stitching machine from NC Carpet directly will get a discount, free shipping, white-glove setup, two days of on-site training, three-year warranty, and three free annual maintenance visits, Maher said.
The agreement was finalized last month at NBAA-BACE. “We decided to align ourselves with ABM because they share the same core values: same-day tech support and precision sewing machines,” Maher said. Additional common distinctions: Both NC Carpet, in North Carolina, and Texas-based ABM are family owned and are celebrating their 75th anniversaries.x
