Diversified global manufacturer in the textile, chemical, floor covering and healthcare industries, Milliken, has acquired one of the Frontier yarn plants in Mayodan, NC/USA, from Gildan Activewear Inc., Montreal/Canada. This plant acquisition expands Milliken’s open-end yarn production for its protective fabrics, workwear, government and defense, industrial, and napery textile business units.
The Frontier Spinning Plant #3, which will be renamed the Two Rivers Plant as a nod to its dedicated team and the community it serves, will become a spinning hub for Milliken & Company, Spartanburg, SC/USA. Multiple Milliken textile plants throughout the Southeast will source their yarn needs from the Two Rivers Plant.
»Investing in this plant enhances the agility of Milliken’s Textile Business and shores up our supply chain in the US to benefit our customers. «
