Standard Textile, a leading global provider of end-to-end solutions for the institutional textile and apparel markets, is expanding its existing Union County manufacturing facility located at 100 Highpoint Drive in Union with a $5 million capital investment to accommodate increasing terry towel finishing capabilities. This was announced by S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley’s office on Wednesday.

Standard Textile will expand the facility by 39,000 square-feet. The project is expected to open doors for new partnerships and opportunities in Standard Textile’s yarn spinning, yarn preparation, and weaving processes.
