Laundry: Underestimated Last Step In The Textile Chain

Everybody in textiles is familiar with fibers, yarns, fabrics, finishing, and sometimes even garment manufacturing. But who cares about the industrial laundering of these garments? Every piece of apparel must be washed or eventually dry-cleaned. What are the consequences of this laundering? Industrial laundering is just one reason why the finishing industry should pay much more attention to possible consequences. However, in most cases, textile care is not yet an issue with the traditional textile industry.

The must-attend event for the laundering industry is Texcare, which was held recently in Frankfurt. Texcare International 2008, the "World Market for Modern Textile Care," was the international meeting place for the laundry and dry-cleaning sector.

Springs Creative Announces Expansion and Relocation of Springs Creative Shanghai Trading Company

June 12, 2009, Rock Hill, S.C. - Representatives from Springs Creative Products Group, LLC (SCPG) announced today they have expanded their China operation by establishing Springs Creative Shanghai Trading Company (SCSTC) as a  Foreign Invested Commercial Enterprise  (FICE) under China law. Located at 188 Jiangning Road in Shanghai, China, the office expands SCPG's existing worldwide sourcing and supply capabilities in China and other countries such as Korea, India, Pakistan, Taiwan and Thailand. Providing a global vertical supply chain for all SCPG customers, the office features a team of professionals with more than 150 years of combined experience in the textile industry.

Nancy Han, who has more than 15 years of experience in the textile and apparel industry, serves as director of merchandising for SCSTC. John Heustess, director of sourcing and China operations, brings more than 35 years of experience in textiles and sourcing to the operation. Thirty-year textile veteran Blake Bell, who remains in China after five years with Springs Global, will serve as president of Asia Sourcing in the Shanghai office. In addition, there is a staff of 14 associates that handle sourcing, merchandise, quality control, product development and CAD design along with other business components.

"Positioning ourselves in China remains a very strategic move as the country is the world's number one emerging market," said Derick Close, CEO and owner of Springs Creative Products Group, LLC. "This move will allow us to better serve our customers through a global vertical supply chain. We have an excellent team of employees that are proficient in the global textile industry and possess years of valuable expertise. We look forward to this office working in conjunction with our U.S. operations to offer further expansions in the future."

The Springs Creative Shanghai Trading Company recently partnered with the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill's Global Business Project (GBP). Through the program, students from four different universities evaluated the SCSTC business plan and worked with the staff to establish new processes.

"Working with Springs Creative Shanghai Trading Company has been an amazing experience for us all," said Anu Kannegundla, George Washington University student and GBP participant. "We have learned a great deal about the textile industry and business relations as it pertains to the United States and foreign markets. Everyone at SCPG has been extremely hospitable and we greatly appreciate the opportunity to work with the SCPG team."

Israeli Fiber Company Brings $17 Million Investment, 42 Jobs to NC

Contact: Tim Crowley

Gov. Bev Perdue today announced that Shalag Industries Ltd., an international supplier of nonwoven fabrics used in the hygiene and wipes markets, will open a new plant in Granville County.  The company will invest more than $17 million and create 42 jobs in Oxford.  The announcement was made possible in part by a $110,000 grant from the One North Carolina Fund.

“North Carolina is home to more nonwoven textile plants than anywhere else in the United States, and the U.S. is home to more nonwoven textile plants than anywhere else in the world,” Perdue said.  “Our business-friendly policies, superb quality of life and skilled, productive workforce are helping companies build success in our state.”

Shalag Industries, headquartered in Upper Galilee, Israel, produces nonwoven fabrics primarily from polypropylene, polyester and viscose fibers.  The fabric is used in the production of dry and wet wipes, diapers and personal hygiene products.  The company’s major customers include Johnson & Johnson, Nicepak and Kimberly Clark.

The company, which has one manufacturing plant in Israel, plans to construct a facility in Oxford, where fibers will be thermo-bonded into nonwoven fabric.  The project’s 42 new jobs will pay an average annual wage of $39,966, not including benefits, which is higher than the Granville County average annual wage of $33,020. 

“Shalag is looking forward to becoming a successful corporate citizen in North Carolina and in Oxford,” company CEO Ilan Pickman said.  “North Carolina is a recognized center for nonwoven manufacturing and R&D and we have identified here a strong infrastructure to support our business.”

 

For more information on Shalag Industries, go to: http://www.shalag.co.il/home.html.  For information on company job opportunities, visit the Employment Security Commission office at 518 Lewis St., Oxford, N.C., 27565, or call the office at 919-693-2686

Regional Commercial Laundry Adds 68 Jobs in Burke County

One NC Fund Grant Helps Maple Springs Laundry Expand in Long View

RALEIGH Gov. Bev Perdue today announced that Maple Springs Laundry Inc., a regional commercial laundry serving the health-care industry, will expand into Burke County.  The company will create 68 jobs and invest $5.9 million during the next three years at a new facility in Long View.  The announcement was made possible in part by a $136,000 grant from the One North Carolina Fund.

“North Carolina offers a top-notch business climate for home-grown companies that are working hard to achieve success in a competitive market,” Gov. Perdue said.  “Our skilled workforce and exceptional quality of life continue to attract and encourage commercial growth and investment.”

Maple Springs Laundry Inc., headquartered in Hickory, provides full laundry services for patient linens, pillows, operating room scrub wear and other hospital and doctor’s office linens. The company currently has one facility in Hickory, where it employs nearly 200 people and plans to expand into a larger, vacant textile plant in Long View.

“Maple Springs Laundry has called North Carolina home for 38 years, along with some of the most highly acclaimed health-care systems in the country,” said company President Chris Daughtry.  “And as an independent, family-owned business, we look forward to expanding our range of services offered to the health-care industry of Western North Carolina.”

The One NC Fund provides financial assistance, through local governments, to attract business projects that will stimulate economic activity and create new jobs in the state.  Companies receive no money up front and must meet job creation and investment performance standards to qualify for grant funds.  These grants also require and are contingent upon local matches.
