Tuscarora To Expand Clover, S.C., Plant

Tuscarora Yarns Inc., Mount Pleasant, N.C., will expand its Clover, S.C., plant, with the
expectation of creating 40 jobs. The $3.5 million expansion will add 6,000 square feet of
manufacturing space to the 190,000-square foot facility as well as new machinery and equipment, and
will increase production capacity by 20 percent.

The plant began operating in 1998 under the company Four Leaf Textiles LLC, which later
became CloverTex LLC. In May 2009, CloverTex and Tuscarora Yarns merged, forming the largest
specialty yarn company in the Americas.

“The Town of Clover, York County and the state of South Carolina have been very supportive of
textile manufacturing at this location for the past 12 years and Tuscarora Yarns is proud to
increase its investment and its workforce at this site,” said David Roberts, COO, Tuscarora Yarns.
