Carolina Textiles has announced that the company will be expanding their operations in Walterboro, South Carolina, adding 15,000 square feet to their facility and new jobs.
The announcement, made by Brad Grossman, president and owner of the company, comes as the company celebrates their 100th year in business.
“We are proud that Carolina Textiles has been a steadfast employer in the community and that we have been contributing to the local economy and quality of life here since 1995,” said Grossman, whose family has owned the company for four generations.
“Our success can be attributed to the loyal workforce here in Colleton County and the low turnover in employees,” added Grossman. “Our longest serving employee has been here 24 years, and our newest employee has been here a year.”
“What an achievement to be celebrating a century of doing business,” said Steve Murdaugh, Chairman of Colleton County Council. “We are grateful to Carolina Textiles for investing in our people and our county, and we are delighted that they are expanding their facility again this year, finding success even during a pandemic. It’s a great American story for a family-owned business. The county will work with them to assist their growth in any way that we can.”
“Companies like Carolina Textiles in Walterboro are the backbone of our regional economy,” said SouthernCarolina Alliance Chairman Marty Sauls. “Every job created here offers a better future for a family, and that’s what economic development is all about. We salute Carolina Textiles for their expansion and on their 100th anniversary.”
