Milliken & Company Acquires Gildan Spinning Plant

Milliken & Company recently announced it has expanded its domestic yarn spinning capacity with the acquisition of a plant — previously known as Frontier Spinning Plant #3 and located in Mayodan, N.C. — from Montreal-based Gildan Activewear Inc. The open-end spinning facility will make yarn for Milliken’s protective fabrics, workwear, government and defense, industrial, and napery businesses. Milliken will rename the plant Two Rivers Plant.

“Investing in this plant enhances the agility of Milliken’s Textile Business and shores up our supply chain in the U.S. to benefit our customers,” stated Halsey Cook, president and CEO. “Guided by integrity and excellence in all we do, this move bolsters our supply chains to enhance customer service.”
