“Pegasus Home Fashions will bring investment and jobs to Bamberg County, and we are delighted that we have the workforce that can support manufacturing operations as diverse as this textile operation, aerospace, advanced composites and agribusiness. It’s a great day for Bamberg County to welcome this fine company,” said Bamberg County Councilman Evert Comer, who represents the area where the Pegasus facility is located.
Mayor Gerald Wright of Denmark hailed the new company, saying, “Denmark welcomes this new industry, and we look forward to creating the best business environment for their manufacturing. The people of our town thank Mr. Spinella and Pegasus for the 113 new jobs and economic stimulation in our community.”

Each of the 113 jobs created will provide a better future for a family in our area, where we are proud of our workforce and history in manufacturing. This big win is a result of teamwork from our county leaders, SouthernCarolina Alliance and the state. I think Pegasus will be very happy with their new home.”
