Beverly Knits Receives Brother Donation

Beverly Knits, Gastonia, N.C., recently received a donation of industrial sewing machines from Brother International Corp., which includes five Brother S7250A-403 single needle lockstitch industrial machines. Creative Ticking, Beverly Knits’ cut-and-sew division, will use the machines to increase its face mask production efforts.

“Brother remains committed to aiding our communities during these challenging times,” said Don Cummins, president, Brother International Corp. USA. “Given the severe and growing shortage of personal protective equipment, Brother is proud to donate our products to support these stalwart manufacturers with their efforts in making masks
for our frontline workers.”

“Continued support and collaboration within the textile industry is key to flattening the COVID-19 curve,” said Ron Sytz, CEO of Beverly Knits. “We appreciate this generous donation from Brother that will help the industry advance the cause at a more rapid pace.”
