Classic Linens provides new start for former Davidson execs
October 1, 2002,
Huntersville, NC — The home textiles industry gets its first look at a brand new company this October market, Classic Linens, which is manned by some familiar faces.
After their exit from now-defunct Davidson Cotton last year, Steve Puckett, Jim Fitzgibbons and John Coles launched Classic Linen, a manufacturer and supplier of a wide variety of towels, terry cloth accessories and bath robes.
Classic will produce the cotton terry-cloth towels and companion items at a new facility in Mexico equipped with warping, slashing, dobby and jacquard looms, jet beck dyeing, loop drying and automatic hemming machinery. The new towels feature a variety of solid colors, embellishments and prints.
Classic also announced its new showroom at 290 Fifth Ave. on the fifth floor.
