Pillowtex Announces Production Consolidation

Pillowtex Corp., Dallas, announced it will be consolidating production of kitchen and institutional towels at the company's Opelika, Ala., weaving facility into three other plants located in Phenix City, Ala.; Fiedale, Va.; and Kannapolis, N.C.According to the company, the Opelika plant will be closed. It was acquired as part of PIllowtex's purchase of the Leshner Corp. in 1998."Based on initial study of the Opelika facility, we determined the spinning operations should be moved to a newer plant that we purchased in Tarboro, N.C.," said Jeffery D. Cordes, president and chief operating officer. "We have now concluded the company will achieve significant operational efficiencies by consolidating the remaining weaving operations into other company sites."
