Parkdale Mills is expanding their operations in Rabun Gap.


Parkdale Mills, the country’s largest manufacturer of spun yarn, is expanding its production plant in Rabun Gap. The company will be investing $85 million and creating 210 additional jobs. The project is scheduled for completion by the end of 2014.

“When a successful Georgia operation like Parkdale Mills decides to expand its facility and its employment roster, it’s a win for all concerned, especially for our workforce,” Gov. Nathan Deal said. “The textile industry has deep roots in Georgia and remains a vital part of our manufacturing sector thanks to our strategic location, logistics advantages and the expertise our skilled workers bring to the table.”

Presently, Parkdale Mills produces the cotton yarn and products for Hanes but will be adding on production for high end polyester/cotton blend performance wear.
