... 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. That's why we buy raw materials and supplies from our local textile mills. That's why we offer Apprenticeship Programs in conjunction with Horry Georgetown Technical College. And, that's why 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 art teachers of Horry County School District for reuse in classrooms. And, we use REPREVE fabrics made with recycled fibers to help divert plastic bottles from our oceans. 

Many folks ask about our name … there are 360 degrees in a circle, a flat shape. At 540 degrees, an object breaks the plane to add depth. At BFIT540, we make products that add depth ... the kind of depth our world needs.
