Gov. Nikki Haley, the South Carolina Department of Commerce, the Town of Jonesville and the Union County Development Board announced that Textile Trends will establish its new production facility in Union County. The nearly $440,000 investment is expected to generate 100 new jobs.

“Union County has a history in the textile industry and so offered the perfect fit for our company. The county had a building to suit our needs and a workforce with the skill set we were looking for. We appreciate all the support we have received from state and local officials and we look forward to becoming a part of South Carolina's business community,” said Johnny Winkler, Roy McCulley and Jack Walker, the co-owners of Textile Trends.

Textile Trends is a start-up company that will produce finished linen products used in the hospitality industry, such as napkins, table cloths and aprons. The company will establish its new cut-and-sew operation in the old Milliken building located at 305 Pacolet Street.

“It's exciting to see a start-up company like Textile Trends locate in Jonesville because of what it says not just about Union County but about our entire state: businesses large and small recognize South Carolina as a place where they can grow. We welcome them,” said Gov. Nikki Haley.

“Our state has a long tradition in the textile industry and we look forward to Textile Trends becoming the newest member of that sector in South Carolina. Start-up companies play an important role in our state's economy and this announcement is another sign that our efforts to encourage entrepreneurship are paying dividends,” said Bobby Hitt, Secretary of Commerce.

“We welcome the addition of Textile Trends to the Jonesville community and to Union County,” said Andrena Powell-Baker, executive director of the Union County Development Board. “Because of our rich and vibrant history in textiles, the company was able to identify the vacant Milliken Packaging building as an ideal location. They moved very quickly to lease the facility and began the process to initiate operations. They will be supplying a growth industry, so we are anticipating much success from this new startup company. The forecasted hiring of 100 people is great news for the state of South Carolina, Union County and the Town of Jonesville.”

“On behalf of the citizens of Jonesville and its Town Council, I want to personally welcome Textile Trends to our town,” said Jonesville Mayor Ernest Moore. “I am sure there are many people who are just as appreciative as the Council that the company chose our community to locate their business. Jonesville and the surrounding area offers a diverse talent pool of good people who need steady work and who would provide any company with valued associates. We look forward to working with the company and helping it grow for the good of all.”

“Textiles have always been the backbone of Union County and I'm glad to see the industry making a comeback,” said state Sen. Harvey Peeler. “We're excited that Textile Trends has decided to locate its operations in South Carolina.”
