Inman Mills Reduces Operations

Inman Mills, Inman, S.C., is to close its Riverdale yarn plant in Enoree, S.C. The closing is part
of a company-wide downsizing that began in January of this year.At this time, Inman is also facing
additional layoffs at its remaining three facilities, but further closings are not anticipated.The
future of our remaining employees is a prime concern, said Robert H. Chapman III, president.
Chapman cited ever-competitive market conditions, which are forcing the company to further
streamline its operations in the face of a manufacturing recession.
