Unitex Industries opened its doors in Chicago's legendary Merchandise Mart. From there we moved directly across the river to the landmark Fulton House. But it was in 1985 that we came to settle into our permanent home town, Oak Park, historic land of Frank Lloyd Wright and Ernest Hemmingway. Meanwhile, in May of 1976 we had decided to open our own manufacturing plant, FashionAire, in the enchanting pastoral setting of River Falls, Wisconsin. October of 2016 marked forty-five years in business for Unitex, and in May of 2016 we reached the 40th anniversary of FashionAire, where we continue to manufacture the highest quality drapery in the country for the contract/commercial industry.
