Textile Trends To Establish Operations In Jonesville, S.C.

Textile Trends LLC — a startup company that will manufacture finished linen products such as
napkins, tablecloths and aprons for the hospitality industry — is investing approximately $440,000
to establish a cut-and-sew operation in Jonesville, S.C., creating 100 jobs in the process. The
company will begin hiring employees early this month.

“Textiles have always been the backbone of Union County and I’m glad to see the industry
making a comeback,” said Sen. Harvey Peeler, R-S.C. “We’re excited that Textile Trends has decided
to located its operations in South Carolina.”

“We welcome the addition of Textile Trends to the Jonesville community and to Union County,”
said Andrena Powell-Baker, executive director, Union County Development Board. “Because of our rich
and vibrant history in textiles, the company was able to identify the vacant Milliken Packaging
building as an ideal location. They moved very quickly to lease the facility and began the process
to initiate operations. They will be supplying a growth industry, so we are anticipating much
success from this new startup company. The forecasted hiring of 100 people is great news for the
state of South Carolina, Union County and the Town of Jonesville.”
