Beverly Knits has purchased the assets of Gentry Mills and the new business, Creative Dyeing & Finishing, LLC will continue to provide dyeing and finishing services to the textile industry.
“We have been producing quality circular knitwear products for over 42 years in Gastonia, North Carolina. We feel this is the right time to further expand our capabilities in fabric dyeing and finishing. This supports the re-shoring of textile production and to strengthen our capability to produce goods manufactured in the USA”, said Ron Sytz, CEO of Beverly Knits.
The Creative Dyeing and Finishing operation will provide fabric dyeing, finishing, napping and printing services to the apparel, industrial and bedding markets. The operation is starting with an experienced workforce. Investments in advanced control technologies, including equipment upgrades, will modernize operations over the next 2 years.
