AKC Note:  Asheboro is a leading supplier of narrow fabrics across a wide range of applications. The plant that is being closed was focused on military markets and with the downturn in military spending it can be understood that business has been poor and has resulted in this decision to close the facility. It is understood that there are approximately 90 people working at the site and it is expected that some of the staff will be relocated to another location in Asheboro. In addition, they have a plant in Virginia and 2 plants in Central America.
