Champion Thread Company, a supplier of industrial sewing thread, engineered yarns and other textile and sewn products, has recruited package dyeing expert Larry Radford to manage its new South Carolina dyehouse facility.

Radford brings over two decades of dyehouse color lab, production technology and operations management experience to head the company’s new investment in the U.S. manufacturing and textile workforce.

“Larry brings extensive subject matter expertise that ensures we will continue to raise the customer service bar for quality, productivity, sustainability and workforce development through a domestic supply chain,” said Matt Poovey, president of the Gastonia, North Carolina-based company.

Radford developed his skills in color shade matching, equipment operation and process optimization during his 20 years of prior dyehouse supervisory and management experience with Mastercraft Fabrics and Spectrum Dyed Yarns in the Carolinas.

“I am very pleased with the opportunity to lead another Made in the Carolinas dyeing operation and to be doing what I am best qualified for,” Radford said. “We are proud to provide our customers with thread dyed right down the road.”
