German Yarn Producer to Open First U.S. Location
July 18, 2014

A German-based producer of spun wool yarns is planning to open a distribution facility in Mount Airy, N.C., this month that will serve as the company's first U.S. location.

Südwolle Group will open an 18,000-square-foot facility. Denine Woodrow, a Südwolle Group representative, said the facility will employ four workers and has the potential to grow from there.

It will serve as a central U.S. location to help Südwolle better serve its customers in the hosiery business and provide a quicker turnaround for shipping products along the East Coast and in the South and Midwest.

Südwolle, which has operations in Poland, Italy, Romania, Austria and China, did not receive incentives for the project.

"It's a Germany company that sees that the United States is a really viable place to do business," Woodrow said.
