Mount Vernon To Purchase Assets Of Arkwright Mills

Mount Vernon Mills Inc., Greenville, S.C., and Arkwright Mills, Spartanburg, S.C., have announced that they have signed a letter of intent for Mount Vernon to purchase Arkwright's textile manufacturing assets.

Arkwright is a leading producer of cotton flannel fabrics for work gloves and woven fleece apparel.

"This sale to Mount Vernon gives the Castwood plant added market strengths," said M.L. Cates Jr., chairman and CEO of Arkwright. "We understand that Mount Vernon plans to replace the older looms with more versatile looms. This will lead to better service and quality for both present and future customers. Most importantly, this means the plant will be operating well into the future providing opportunities for our employees."
