“Our operations here in Greensboro have come full circle,” said Richard Sutton, CEO, LT Apparel Group. “From designing products in Revolution Mill to warehousing and distributing them from Brown Summit, LT Apparel is part of the fabric of this community, and we’re committed to remain so. After a long search for our new home, it became clear that Greensboro was the right choice for us. We appreciate the support we’ve received from all the state and local partners, and we look forward to growing our company in North Carolina.”
The company’s new jobs will yield an average salary of $50,235, in line with Guilford County’s average annual wage. Once the project’s new jobs are in place, the local region will benefit from a more than $4m payroll impact in the community, each and every year.
