Parkdale To Expand Rabun Gap Facility

Parkdale Mills Inc., Gastonia, N.C., is investing $85 million to expand its spinning facilty in Rabun Gap, Ga., and add 210 jobs.

Parkdale acquired the Rabun Gap site from HanesBrands Inc., Winston-Salem, N.C., in 2009. The 750,000-square-foot facility houses two plants that spin 100-percent cotton yarn for use in T-shirts and high-end activewear. The company will convert production in one plant to polyester/cotton blended yarn for use in performancewear.

The expansion will take place in two phases, with approximately half of the total jobs added in the first phase and half in the second phase. Parkdale will begin installing equipment in early 2014, and expects the expansion to be completed by the end of 2014.

Parkdale operates 25 plants in the United States, Colombia and Mexico.
