Rockland Mills Heads to New Factory
August 20, 2007,
Rockland Mills will relocate its drapery lining manufacturing facilities to a state of the art 400,000-plus-square-foot plant in Bamberg, S.C.
As an example of efficiencies, Fradin cited new equipment "that now produces two yards for every yard run because it is double width, allowing it to be used wide or split." Additionally he pointed to the "textile foaming and finishing capability that are the gold standards of the industry." Other new pluses are added bleaching, calendaring, inspection and shipping capacities.
Fradin also noted, "Our new equipment runs twice the speed of its predecessors, and with greater use of energy conservation, and greater first-quality performance than ever before."
The changeover will begin Aug. 27 with a winding down of the plant here. By year end the move is expected to be completed.
