Standard Textile to invest $5mn in Union County facility

Standard Textile, a vertically integrated company in the institutional textile and apparel markets is expanding its Union County, South Carolina manufacturing facility.

Standard Textile is expanding its existing Union County facility by 39,000 square-feet and will accommodate increasing terry towel finishing capabilities.

The expanded plant will also facilitate new partnerships and opportunities in Standard Textile’s yarn spinning, yarn preparation, and weaving processes.

The $5 million capital investment is expected to create 35 new jobs in Union County.

“This significant expansion to our facility, which we refer to as a ‘smart plant,’ utilizes technology in its incorporation of automation, robotics, and visual control systems,” said Standard Textile CEO, Gary Heiman.

He added, “I thank Union County Development Board and the South Carolina Department of Commerce for their efforts to generate more competitive conditions for this expansion, and for their confidence in Standard Textile”.

According to the South Carolina Department of Commerce, the investment is part of Standard Textile’s overall effort to bring manufacturing back, in a significant way, to all their US-based facilities, which remained operative when other textile companies left America.

“The expansion in Union marks the beginning of Standard Textile’s North American manufacturing strategy, and demonstrates how the company is making greater use of its global web of manufacturing facilities in order to serve customers,” the department informed.

ReadySC, a division of the S.C. Technical College System, will be assisting with recruitment and training of potential employees.

“This $5 million investment is great news for Union County, and the 35 jobs, Standard Textile is creating will have a lasting impact on that community,” said Governor, Nikki Haley.

Founded in 1940, Standard Textile operates 29 manufacturing and distribution facilities in 16 countries, including two operations in South Carolina.

Standard Textile employs a global workforce of more than 4,000 and serves customers in the healthcare, hospitality, interior products, and industrial apparel marketplaces. (AR)
