Welcome to Carolina Absorbent Cotton

Carolina Absorbent Cotton has supplied coil for pharmaceutical and vitamin packaging since the mid-1940s. The only vertically-integrated cotton coil supplier in the U.S., we maintain complete product control throughout the manufacturing process. The bleached cotton used in coil is manufactured in one of two state-of-the-art bleacheries strategically located in the US, which ensures reliability and consistency in our coil products. In addition to cotton, we produce rayon and polyester coil in three manufacturing locations strategically located in Pomfret, Connecticut; Reno, Nevada and Charlotte, North Carolina.  Each site’s manufacturing practices follow GMP guidelines.


Committed to excellence of product and service, Carolina Absorbent Cotton maintains an FDA-approved facility, and our coils meet or exceed U.S. and European Pharmacopeia (USP and EP) standards. In addition the fibers we use meet the FDA CFR’s for Food Contact. As a result of the finest quality available in the industry, we ship our coil to the top pharmaceutical companies throughout the world.

Dedicated to complete customer satisfaction, our sales staff and technical service personnel are available to assist with product and processing questions. Our fully functional laboratory is equipped to perform all necessary USP and EP tests, and all products are lot controlled and coded for full traceability.
