Alandale Knitting, LLC, manufacturer of circular knits for the fashion, military, industrial and technical textiles industries, is celebrating 50 years of operation at its Troy, North Carolina plant. The company will mark the milestone with a gathering of employees, suppliers, and friends on October 29, 2016 at its 120,000 square foot facility.

Founded in 1966 by prolific textile industry innovator Alan Gutschmit, the company has transformed itself to successfully navigate a constantly changing domestic textile industry.

Over the years, the mill has expanded to more than 225 machines with a production capacity of over 500,000-pounds per week. The key to this success is the company's commitment to flexibility and speed that allows it to offer the wide range of capabilities, sizes, and complex construction types needed to meet the diverse requirements of fashion, automotive, protective gear, industrial, and technical textiles applications.

Alandale Knitting president Don Trexler, “While the US textile industry has clearly had its ups and downs over the years, Alandale Knitting has always been recognised as the go-to provider for new and difficult constructions. Our ability to quickly deliver high quality, complex knit programs enables us to fulfil the needs of both new brands that are focusing on Made in US goods and established companies that are looking for specific technical capabilities, extra capacity, or the benefits of reshoring. We are, of course, also accomplished in providing greige fabric programs to serve the needs of our clients that produce in the NAFTA and CAFTA-DR regions.” (GK)
