The company expects to start hiring in late February.

"We are excited about this expansion," said Satoru Kuninaka, president, Suminoe Textile of America. "Cherokee County has provided an excellent business environment for us, so we are pleased to continue growing our operations here. The new facility will allow us to add capacity and meet growing demand from our customers and clients."
