Greg Thomases, Vice President of Wearbest parent company Swavelle added, “I am very proud of our team effort to turn around our production so quickly. We are fortunate to have a US mill that provides us the capability to produce PPE product. We’ve accomplished a lot in just a few weeks and plan to continue innovating through this unprecedented time. Our hope is to help meet the needs of thousands of frontline healthcare workers.”
“We are very excited to be able to expand our offerings of upholstery product for the residential and furniture industries, and to leverage our domestic capabilities and resources,” said Greg Thomases, vice president of Swavelle.
Thomases said bringing on Kristan Dally, an industry veteran and Keystone Weaving’s former vice president of residential upholstery, will be key to this expansion as she works to develop Swavelle products that will serve the residential furniture, jobber, retail and RV markets.
“Kristan has an accomplished career in the home textile industry. Her design talents, along with the novelty yarns, will enable us to recreate patterns that customers may still need, as well as provide original styles.”
Through this purchase Swavelle has also received Keystone Weavings Mills’ yarns, dobby looms and other mill equipment, giving the company access to a wider breadth of product and service opportunities.
A new line that will include both jacquard and dobby patterns, which will be woven at Wearbest Weavers, a Swavelle subsidiary, is currently being designed for launch at Showtime’s upcoming May event.
