Frontier Spinning Expands Operation In Sanford, NC

Frontier Spinning Mills, Sanford, N.C., is investing $15.5 million to expand manufacturing operations in Sanford, with plans initially to create 45 technology-based jobs and to install state-of-the-art spinning machinery that offers increased production speeds and enhanced product quality.

The company produces air-jet-spun and open-end cotton and cotton/polyester yarns for the knitting and weaving sectors at facilities in North Carolina, Georgia and Alabama. Its current workforce totals some 1,100 people, and it spins more than 500 million pounds of yarn annually.

John Maness, executive vice president, sees business prospects improving in the wake of a particularly difficult period of economic recession. "With those better prospects and this expansion allowing us to enter new markets and expand our sales, we feel like we have a bright future here in Sanford," he said.
