Southern Weaving Receives 2013 Silver Crescent Award For Manufacturing Excellence
The Silver Crescent Awards are given by the Silver Crescent Foundation to recognize small, midsized and large manufacturers in South Carolina and to promote the importance of manufacturing to the state's standard of living and quality of life.
Founded in 1904, Southern Weaving has increased its workforce by more than 25 percent over the past two years and now employs 212 people at its locations in Greenville, Anderson, S.C., and Collingwood, Canada. The company was recognized for its creative partnerships with community organizations including Greenville Technical College, Furman University, SC Works, ReadySC, SCMEP and Personal Pathways to Success.
The awards were presented at the 17th annual Salute to Manufacturing Awards Luncheon, held last week at the TD Convention Center in Greenville.
Dalton, Ga.-based Shaw Industries Inc.'s Plant 8T in Greenville was among the eleven Silver Crescent Award finalists.
