$28 m to NC State University
Alumnus Frederick Eugene Wilson and his family have donated $28 million to North Carolina State University’s College of Textiles which will be now known as the Wilson College of Textiles. A leader in textile research, the Wilson College of Textiles is the only standalone textile college in the US. The grant will benefit the entire US textile supply chain.

“Thank you so very much to the Wilson family. This gift is significant for the US textile industry,” said National Council of Textile Organisations (NCTO) chairman Marty Moran, CEO of Buhler Quality Yarns Corporation and a holder of a degree in textile management from North Carolina State University.

“As a fellow alumnus I’m proud and grateful to the Wilson family for giving back so selflessly to help others. As the CEO of a textile company and as chairman of the largest Washington, DC-based trade association representing US textiles, I’m excited because this gift will help mold the next generation of leaders and innovators,” Moran added as he noted more than fifty companies participated in the Wilson College of Textiles career fair on September 26.

“The Wilson family’s donation will benefit not just North Carolinians, but the entire US textile supply chain,” stressed Moran as he explained NCTO and its member companies often work closely with Wilson College of Textiles faculty and students on everything from solving technical problems to innovating and manufacturing the fibres, yarns and fabrics of tomorrow.

NCTO resident and CEO Auggie Tantillo said, “On behalf of NCTO’s entire membership, I want to express appreciation to the Wilson family for their very generous gift. Further, we are grateful to the Wilson College of Textiles for their continued dedication and invaluable contribution to the US textile industry.”

NCTO is a Washington, DC-based trade association that represents domestic textile manufacturers, including artificial and synthetic filament and fibre producers. (SV)
