Parkdale To Reopen Former Wellstone Plant By Year End
Parkdale Mills Inc., Gastonia, N.C., plans to begin operations by the end of this year at a
Gaffney, S.C., spinning plant formerly owned by Wellstone Mills. In March 2010, Parkdale signed a
lease/purchase agreement with Wellstone for four of its spinning plants.
Parkdale will invest $45 million to furnish the plant with new equipment and also to upgrade existing machinery. Up to 145 jobs at the plant that were lost when Wellstone closed will be recovered.
