Dillon began in Paterson, New Jersey, in the 1880s as weavers and distributors of silk fabric. From there, we evolved both as manufacturers and distributors, building a reputation for reliability and customer-friendly service. By the 1970s, we had grown to nearly 10 times our initial size. In 2010, we became an ESOP, giving all of our employees a direct stake in the future of the company and in the quality of what we do.
Today, we operate almost exclusively as a wholesale distributor, while maintaining a small manufacturing operation providing value-added services to customers. In 2019, we moved our headquarters from Paterson to Fort Lauderdale, Florida — where every day we continue our commitment to putting your textile needs first.
Dillon Yarn is a distributor of spun, flat and industrial yarn, as well as other incidental textile items for use in textile and related industries. We’ve been in the textile business for roughly a century, with our motto being: “We specialize in you.” And as an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) company, the hands-on, fully-invested commitment we bring each day extends to every member of our team.
