About Us

Company Profile

From the company's beginnings over 125 years ago to its rise to leadership in the textile industry, quality has been the thread of continuity for American & Efird Inc. As North America's foremost manufacturer of sewing threads, our presence extends as far as Singapore and Chile. But, it is neither the number nor the scope of our international operations that make American & Efird a world class company. That distinction comes from our dedication in providing our Customers with the finest possible products and service.

While our roots in Canada are not as long, our commitment to quality is as deep as in all our operations. American & Efird Canada has embraced the principals of Quality Business Culture (QBC), a culture which stimulates individual responsibility and initiative.

Our Canadian associates who work in distribution, sales and customer service are committed to providing VALUE to our Customers.

Our Central Distribution is also located in Montreal. It services three additional distribution centers located in Winnipeg, Edmonton and Vancouver and deliver all cross Canada. It provides the entire range of A&E thread as well as trim, notions, embroidery threads and cutting room supplies. A&E Canada provides same day service in these metropolitan regions and next day service throughout Canada. We invite you to visit these facilities.

American & Efird Canada also provides our Customers with Technical Service, thread surveys and seminars.

Confidence in textiles – this has been the motto of the independent test institutes of the International Oeko-Tex® Association since 1992. A&E has received multiple Oeko-Tex® Standard 100 certifications for our most common thread products from many of our global manufacturing facilities. The Oeko-Tex program is a voluntary product testing program for the certification of restricted chemical levels present in our thread products.
