PTC industry Sigvaris featured on TV’s ‘How It’s Made’
Local residents can get a behind-the-scenes look on a global manufacturing firm located in Peachtree City starting Thursday on the Science Channel.
Sigvaris, which makes compression socks and hosiery, will be featured on the show “How It’s Made” Thursday at 9:30 p.m., Friday at 12:30 a.m., Saturday at 4:30 a.m. and Thursday, Dec. 26 at 10:30 p.m.
Peachtree City is home to Sigvaris’s North America manufacturing facility, and “How It’s Made” will show details on the manufacturing process. “How It’s Made” shows a step-by-step process of how products are made, typically on assembly lines that are often machine-powered but human supervised.
Sigvaris makes socks and hosiery with graduated compression, which means they are tightest at the ankle while decreasing in pressure the higher they go up the leg, company officials said.
The compression garments help improve circulation and revive tired, achy legs while also helping with the treatment and prevention of varicose veins.
Sigvaris, headquartered in Sweden, is a global leader in the compression industry and has been making compression undergarments for more than 60 years. To learn more, visit sigvarisusa.com.
