Springs sells Eureka plant to Spartan Fiber

FORT MILL, S.C. — Springs Industries has sold its Eureka Plant to Spartan Fiber, which plans to use the former textiles weaving facility in Chester, S.C., for yarn storage and distribution.

Gary Mahaffey, president and owner of Spartan Fiber, said the facility will initially employ a small number of Spartan employees, and employment could grow as the business expands.

Because there is more space at Eureka than Spartan currently needs, the company agreed to lease office space to the Good Samaritan Clinic. The Springs Close Foundation has provided financial support to the clinic to buy medical and office supplies.
