New Jersey-based, Jade Apparel is intending to renovate the Glenoit Fabrics facility, which is located at Tarboro, with an investment of $2 million.

With the revamp of this facility, Jade Apparel intends on hiring about 250 people within a span of coming three years, to work in this facility, which will be manufacturing military-based apparels.

The 300,000 square-foot-building will be sub-divided, to create space for the new business, which will produce, military parkas, pants, jackets, combat shirts, trousers and various field apparels.

Before 2005, Glenoit Fabrics had over 120 people as labourers at the Tarboro plant, however, this workforce was immensely reduced, post sales of the company to Chinese interested investors.

Apart from using space leased out by Glenoit Fabrics, Jade Apparel will also purchase fabrics manufactured by Glenoit Fabrics. It is a vice-versa deal, which is going to profit both firms.

As per a spokesperson from Jade Apparel, the company is waiting anxiously to kick-start operation at the new place; more so, Glenoit and Jade Apparel already have a long history of teamwork and friendship.

Jade Apparel also believes that, on being in close proximity with the fabric source, their time and cost for transportation will also be reduced.

The Carolinas Gateway Partnership, in January 2006, declared that, Glenoit IIG Corporation has inked a contract with Tarboro Textiles LLC to manage manufacturing operation for Glenoit Fabrics HG Corporation's facility.

Jerry Howard, former Glenoit Fabrics employee, owns and runs Tarboro Textiles LLC. The plant currently has 39 people as its employees.

CEO and President of the partnership, John R Gessaman said that, he was happy about the new generation of jobs at Tarboro. More so, Jade Apparel has also applied for state grants for this project with the help of a private public industrial recruitment agency.
