Parkdale’s largest plant is located in Rabun Gap on John Beck Dockins Road and the company has 26 factories in the United States. Parkdale is based in Gastonia, N.C.

Collins, who represents Georgia’s 9th Congressional District, met with representatives and employees from Parkdale on Thursday, Oct. 3 and toured the facility to learn about details of their operations.

“This plant represents one of the largest textile investments in North America over the last five years,” said Daniel Nation, director of government relations at Parkdale, in a press statement.
