WE BELIEVE that skilled trades are the backbone of America. Trades-men and women build the roads we drove on, the schools we learn in, the homes we live in. They cook our meals, cut our hair, and make our clothes. Without skilled trades, our world would be a very different place.
That's why we support the trades. We buy our raw materials and supplies from local fabric mills and businesses. We offer Apprenticeship Programs. And, we join Mike Rowe and mikeroweWORKS Foundation to help close the skills gap.
We take great pride in our trade, recognize the value of hard work, and giveback to our community in many ways. We work with Vocational Rehabilitation to hire people with disabilities. We donate our printed paper off-take to teachers of Horry County School District. We offer apprenticeships in conjunction with Horry Georgetown Technical College. And, we use REPREVE fabrics made with recycled fibers to help reduce plastic waste.
