Firestone’s Kings Mountain facility has manufactured tire cord and similar products. Firestone Fibers & Textiles has ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 registered plants located in Kings Mountain and Gastonia in North Carolina, as well as Woodstock, Ontario since 1992.

Robert Browne, Chairman of the Gaston County Economic Development Commission said that, “It was a true team effort on the part of the Gaston County Board of Commissioners, the Kings Mountain City Council and the staff of the Economic Development Commission to bring this project to fruition.”

Chairman of the Gaston County Board of Commissioners, Chad Brown, said that, “This plant expansion is great news for Kings Mountain and Gaston County.” He quoted that, “It is always gratifying when one of our community’s oldest operating industrial firms – Firestone Fibers & Textiles Company continues to grow.”

Kings Mountain Mayor Scott Neisler said that, “This expansion of Firestone Fibers & Textiles Company is wonderful.” He added that, “The Kings Mountain City Council is committed to maintaining a welcoming environment for industry.
