HOSIERY AND TEXTILES DAY IN THE LEGISLATURE—2017

Paul Fogleman,

Legislators who attended the breakfast meeting with hosiery and textiles executives last week were still talking about the presentation by the executives of the Textile Technology Center and the Manufacturing Solutions Center. Rep. Billy Richardson of Cumberland County asked for a copy of the presentation which he plans to use in meetings with economic development people in his district.

Most legislators were impressed with job opportunities and the salaries in North Carolina’s growing textiles industry. The transition of the industry to high-tech manufacturing and the need for skilled personnel with education beyond high school was a message that resonated with lawmakers.
