Scores of manufacturers from throughout North Carolina and across the U.S. attended the exhibit of new equipment for hosiery and knit producers last week at the Manufacturing Solutions Center in Conover.
Alan Parker, president of PAM Trading Corp., the distributor for Lonati, said some 230 persons registered for the three-day event. They included hosiery marketing companies looking to replace offshore sources with domestic manufacturers. “We wrote orders…it was a good show for us and the MSC is an ideal location,” Parker said. He also confirmed that new hosiery start-up companies are buying equipment.
