Frontier Spinning To Upgrade Mayodan, NC, Plant, Add Jobs

Sanford, N.C.-based Frontier Spinning Mills — a manufacturer of air-jet-spun and open-end cotton
and cotton/polyester yarns for the knitting and weaving sectors — is investing $10.3 million to
expand operations at its Shakey Road plant in Mayodan, N.C., with the expectation of adding 27
jobs. The company reports it will invest in new machinery and building improvements by December of
this year. The investment is funded in part by an incentive package approved by Rockingham County
that will provide Frontier with up to $188,000, to be paid over a four-year period beginning in
February 2012.

“We are pleased to have this opportunity to grow our business and provide new jobs in a tough
economy,” said John Bakane, CEO, Frontier Spinning Mills. “We are also encouraged by signs that
more sourcing is being done in this hemisphere.”
