Griffin, Ga. – 1888 Mills has acquired a 500,000-sq.-ft. facility located a mile from its towel mill here, which it plans to use as part of its expansion strategy.
The textiles manufacturer will relocate its manufacturing and distribution to the space by the end of this year.
The facility was previously occupied by Nacom, a company that made injection molding and wire harnessing for automobiles at the plant.
“It is with the continued support of our most valued customers that we are able to implement our plans to grow our USA footprint,” said Jonathan Simon, ceo of 1888 Mills.
1888’s towel operation is one of the beneficiaries of Walmart’s commitment to source more U.S.-made products over the coming five years. The company also operates mills in Pakistan, Bangladesh and Ghana, with offices in Shanghai and the UK.
