Santens of America Shuts Down
June 4, 2007,
After 18 years of manufacturing jacquard and jacquard-border terry bath ensembles, beach towels and embroidered varieties, Santens of America permanently shut down on May 18. The company was the U.S. division of parent company Santens in Belgium.
There had been one such entity considering investing in the company, but it had ultimately declined. Tucker added that the reason for the closing of the facility was due to increased competition from foreign manufacturers.
The Santens of America plant here included its own dye house and weaving department. According to the local newspaper Independent Mail, Santens of America would wind down and liquidate its assets over the following several weeks.
