Expansion of Springs Textile Corridor Project at Cotton Factory

Aug '08
Representatives from Springs Creative Products Group LLC announced that the company has relocated its headquarters from the Rock Hill Business and Technology Center at 454 South Anderson Road to the historic Cotton Factory at 300 Chatham Avenue, Suite 100 in Rock Hill, S.C. The newly renovated 20,000-square-foot facility, which provides space for 50 Springs Creative Products Group employees, serves as the company's corporate collaboratory and design center and also houses the company's consumer products group, which consists of retail fabrics, crafts and finished products.

The establishment of the Springs Creative Products Group Design Center at the Cotton Factory creates a unique and contemporary layout of space which supports the company's work flow processes from product development to product completion. The facility's open floor plan includes the Historical Library of Textile Design, the largest private collection of more than 350,000 fabric swatches dating back to the 1800s.

The company's sales and marketing functions are also located at the new facility, along with administrative support. Springs Creative Products Group continues to operate its distribution center, which is located adjacent to the Springs Creative Products Group Design Center.

"This new design center is a creative workspace for our customers, students and other design professionals, said Derick Close, CEO and owner of Springs Creative Products Group LLC. We believe this move demonstrates our commitment to the community and a deep respect for the history and the roots of the textile industry. We are creating an environment that recognizes the past and embraces the future and are committed to the further revitalization of downtown Rock Hill and the expansion of the Textile Corridor Project."

The Cotton Factory first opened in 1881 as the first steam-powered textile mill in South Carolina and the first mill in the city of Rock Hill.

"Innovation and commitment to developing the textile business will continue to be a part of the history of this facility, said Mike Boylan, president of Springs Creative Products Group's consumer products group. The intensely competitive textile industry forced us to develop a 21st century business model that is ironically located in a century-old weaving room. Our new business model captures the ˜creative capital" located in the United States, as well as sourcing and manufacturing on a global scale."

Springs Creative Products Group is also home to the Historical Library of American Textile Design, an invaluable collection of more than 350,000 fabric swatches, artwork and designs from the 1800s to the present.
