Legwear maker Kayser-Roth to invest $7mn for expansion

Jul '05
Branded, licensed and private label legwear and apparel maker Kayser-Roth Corporation has announced a 7 million dollar expansion to its sock manufacturing and distribution facility located in Burlington, NC.

The expansion is expected to add as many as 180 jobs over a three-year period and will require a 100,000 sq. foot plant addition adjacent to the existing knitting and finishing facility.

The expansion is part of continuing investment program supported by Golden Lady Company, Kayser-Roth's parent company, and is consistent with the long-term vision of its principal owner, Nerino Grassi.

North Carolina's Director of Business Retention & Expansion, Eugene Byrd, attended the announcement at the Alamance County facility to express his pleasure in seeing a North Carolina textile manufacturer make a commitment to not only remain in the state, but to also expand its business here.

In discussing the expansion, Kevin Toomey, President and CEO of Kayser- Roth said, "A major component of Kayser-Roth's vision is to sustain and create jobs to support a 'Made in America' philosophy. Our ability to fulfill customer needs promptly is facilitated by domestic manufacturing. Kayser- Roth's vision encompasses the best of both worlds - domestic production in its facilities that have the most advanced equipment in the world and the development of strong relationships with overseas producers for specialized products not made domestically."

"They have the finest workforce in the industry in North Carolina and Tennessee, and our teammates take pride in knowing that consumers can expect the best quality and value in the world when they buy our products," said Toomey.
