Industry supplier Creative Ticking, a division of Beverly Knits, with headquarters in Gastonia, North Carolina, has expanded its research and development and design team by promoting one and hiring two others.
Cindy Rice, who joined the Creative Ticking team in 2015 as a product designer, was promoted to lead product designer. Chelsea Lloyd was hired for the position of process engineer, and McCall Moore joined the design team as a product designer. All three hold degrees from the College of Textiles at North Carolina State University in Raleigh.
Rice is responsible for managing the design group. She and Moore work closely with the technical staff to develop new looks and styles across the company’s different business sectors.
As process engineer, Lloyd is responsible for improving production efficiencies and overseeing quality control.
“We are lucky to have a fantastic textile program so close to home,” said Scott Frisch, vice president of business development. “Creative Ticking is committed to creating one-of-a-kind fabrics that truly perform and continuing to expand our customer offerings. We cannot wait to utilize the local talent and see where it takes our team.”
Lloyd, Moore and Rice report to Frisch.
