Bulace rising from the ashes
The fire which started in the drying room on the morning of December 8th caused an estimated $2.3 million in damage to the factory ravaging 60% of the company’s buildings and equipment.
Founder John Bulace said at the time that he was hopeful of getting the dyehouse up and running again.
“I'm not getting any younger but for the sake of the employees I'd like to think we could get it going again," Bulace said.
Since the fire, the company has demolished the affected buildings and equipment and has upgraded older undamed equipment.
Dyehouse Manager Shayne Wren told ATF Magazine that Bulace now has the original building functional with most of the machinery operational in that area.
“Bulace Dyeing can now process elastic, lace, trim, sample pieces & short lengths of fabrics,” Wren said.
“We also still have some machinery suited to dyeing garments.”
“As with any jigsaw puzzle, as the pieces come together we will gain a clearer picture of what we can rebuild towards.”
Wren said he would like to thank all of the company’s customers, suppliers, service and industry friends whom have made their feelings thought towards during this horrible period.
“It restores your faith in humanity, sometimes helps you get through the days, thanks,” he said.
