Monterey Mills Expands Tarboro, N.C., Plant, Adds Employees

Monterey Mills — a Janesville, Wis.-based sliver knitter and paint-roller fabric supplier — is investing $250,000 to add capacity and employees at its Glenoit Fabrics operation in Tarboro, N.C. Monterey acquired sliver knitter Glenoit last year in an effort to expand its market share in the sliver-knitting segment (See “Monterey Mills Acquires Glenoit Fabrics,” TextileWorld.com, Oct. 29, 2013).
The investment includes the addition of seven new pieces of equipment and a build-out of the plant’s 19,000-square-foot cut-and-sew operation.
Monterey also has increased the plant’s workforce by 10 percent to support the expansion and has expanded its management team, hiring Brian Kline as chief manufacturing officer; and promoting Brent Birkhoff to COO and Ed Lowder to vice president of industrial sales. The company also has named Lois Griffin as cut & sew manager at the Tarboro operation; Sheryl Tyndall Powell, assistant research and development manager; and Ray Martinez, assistant plant manager.
