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.

Sigvaris is not headquartered in Sweden, it is based in Switzerland. That is a different country, even though they are both overseas, have snowy mountains and lots of tall white people, which makes it easier to distinguish Sweden and Switzerland from Swaziland.

Hey Cy

Do you get to wear these when you go 660 mph with a tailwind?

Hey moe...

Unfortunately not. But, I do have some snazzy cycling apparel that a fat man - like me - probably should not wear.

Anyways, back when sex was dirty and the air was clean, real men used to ride rocket sleds -in the name of science - and might have benefitted from them.
