Textile Corporation of America Locates Headquarters-Manufacturing in Pikeville, Tennessee

07/25/2017
Textile Corporation of America Inc. will invest $27.1 million to locate its headquarters and manufacturing facility on 16 acres at the 186,000 square foot Bledsoe County Industrial Building in Pikeville, Tennessee. The company plans to create 1,000 jobs.

A leading textile manufacturer, Textile Corporation of America utilizes state-of-the-art plants and machinery to produce quality industrial and institutional textile products including apparel, bedding, healthcare, hospitality, and kitchen line Textile Corpons.

“I could not be happier that my home state of Tennessee is leading the renaissance of American manufacturing with the announcement of this facility today,” Chattanooga businessman and Textile Corporation of America owner Ed Cagle said. “We are proud to call Pikeville, Tennessee home to our new mill. Millions of dollars of investment and the creation of a thousand jobs will be transformative to this county and region.”

“This is an exciting time for Bledsoe County,” Bledsoe County Mayor Gregg Ridley said. “As mayor of a Tier 4 economically distressed county, getting 1,000 local jobs is a pivotal moment in time for our citizens and an answer to many prayers. I welcome Textile Corporation of America to our community and trust they will experience many years of prosperity.”

Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe said, “While we are certainly proud of the decline in our unemployment rate, we know there are areas of our state where Tennesseans struggle to find jobs. Textile Corporation of America’s commitment to create 1,000 jobs in Bledsoe County, a Tier 4 Distressed county, will have an incredible impact on the community and surrounding area. We appreciate the company’s investment in our state and look forward to building a lasting partnership in the future.”

Governor Bill Haslam said; “Tennessee’s central location and established workforce make it a prime location for companies like Textile Corporation of America to set up manufacturing operations.”

“We are so excited about the recent news for our town and county. It has been a long time coming and we want to thank everyone for their hard work and not giving up on bringing jobs to our area,” Pikeville Mayor Philip Cagle said. “We look forward to working with our new friends and for a long successful journey. We are thrilled for the future of our town and the jobs that this company is bringing to Bledsoe County and the surrounding counties.”
