Pro Towels To Expand Abbeville, S.C., Operations, Add 50 Jobs

Pittsburgh-based Pro Towels — a provider of screen printing and embroidery services for promotional
products — will invest $2.5 million to expand its operations in Abbeville, S.C., adding 50 jobs in
the process.

The company will relocate from its existing 100,000-square-foot (ft
2) facility to a new 300,000-ft
2 facility that will house its offices, warehouse and production. The increased space
will enable the company to add equipment and expand its apparel decorating business to the East
Coast. Pro Towels’ apparel decorating operations currently are run out of its Superior Decorating
division located in California.

“We are excited to expand our operations in Abbeville County,” said Kevin Nord, president,
Pro Towels. “We’ve seen demand from our customers increase recently and we need to grow our
operations to meet that demand. South Carolina has provided us with an excellent business
environment and a skilled workforce for years. We appreciate all the support we’ve received from
state and local officials.”

Pro Towels reports it soon will begin hiring for the new positions.
