Monterey Mills Expands Glenoit Plant, Adds Jobs

Janesville, Wis.-based sliver knitter and paint-roller fabric supplier Monterey Mills is investing $250,000 to add capacity and employees at its Glenoit Fabrics operation in Tarboro, N.C. Monterey acquired sliver knitter Glenoit last year in an effort to expand its market share in the sliver-knitting segment (See “Monterey Acquires Glenoit Fabrics,” Textile World, November/December 2013).

The investment includes the addition of seven pieces of equipment and a build-out of the plant’s 19,000-square-foot cut-and-sew operation.

Monterey also has increased the plant’s workforce by 10 percent to support the expansion and has expanded its management team,hiring Brian Kline as chief manufacturing officer; and promoting Brent  Birkhoff to COO and Ed Lowder to vice president of industrial sales.

The company also has named Lois Griffin as cut and sew manager at the Tarboro operation; Sheryl Tyndall Powell, assistant research and development manager; and Ray Martinez, assistant plant manager.
