Hemingway Apparel becomes Hemingway Sewing Solutions
HEMINGWAY, SC – December 13, 2021 – Investors affiliated with the Creative Fabrics division of Beverly Knits have purchased the assets of Hemingway Apparel. The new business, Hemingway Sewing Solutions, will continue to provide traditional cut and sew services to long-time apparel customers and will also expand into mattress cover assembly. Due to increased demand, the new company plans to hire over 50 additional employees in early 2022.
Jack Marsh, Founder of Hemingway Apparel, said, “I am very pleased that the Hemingway Apparel team will continue to form the Hemingway Sewing Solutions team. This is a great opportunity for growth and additional investment for the people of Hemingway as well as Williamsburg and Florence counties.”
“A combination of factors drove the decision to invest and expand,” said Parker Sytz, managing partner of Hemingway Sewing Solutions. “Over the past forty years, Jack Marsh and Hemingway Apparel have developed a solid reputation for providing quality cutting and sewing services to the apparel market. We will continue to offer these services and diversify into the growing market for knit mattress covers. We are very excited to invest locally in the equipment and people needed for this growth. »
Hemingway Sewing Solutions will be able to expand immediately through an affiliation with Beverly Knits. Beverly Knits operations are located a few hours away in Gastonia, North Carolina, where they knit and finish specialty fabrics and cut and sew mattress covers for the bedding market. Due to the strong growth in demand for their products, additional domestic cutting and sewing services are required.
Hemingway Sewing Solutions currently provides garment cutting and sewing services for the activewear, ready-to-wear and lingerie markets. They have an experienced workforce and have recently invested in automated fabric cutting technology. Additional equipment and workstations are being installed to support bedding-related product expansion. In the coming weeks, Hemingway Sewing Solutions will begin hiring at least 50 additional assembly technician and facility maintenance associates (www.hemingwaysewing.com).
