Turkish fabric company plans $4M plant investment in North Carolina

The state and Winston-Salem City Council have approved tax incentives for the project.


WINSTON-SALEM, NC — A textile company in Turkey plans to reopen an old textile plant in North Carolina, creating as many as 260 jobs over three years.

A statement from North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper’s office said HPFabrics Inc. has agreed to set up an operation in Winston-Salem.

The state and Winston-Salem City Council have approved tax incentives for the project.

HPFabrics president Rafet Tukek told Winston-Salem development officials the company would spend nearly $4 million to upgrade the closed textile plant. He says the plant will strengthen trade between the US and Turkey. The company was formed earlier this year.

Tukek told Winston-Salem economic development officials the average annual salary for the local jobs would be about $30,000, plus benefits.
