WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. (AP) - A German textile manufacturer says it plans to open its first U.S. operation in Mount Airy at an 18,000-square-foot distribution center.

The Winston-Salem Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1jZLqQL ) Südwolle Group, a 94-year-old family owned company based in Nuremberg, makes pure wool and wool-blend worsted spun yarns for weaving, and circular and flat knitting. It also has operations in Australia, China, Italy, Poland and Romania.

The site is a vacant warehouse, and it’s projected to open this month.

The company did not say how many jobs it expects to create with the center. It said it would announce full details at the SpinExpo trade show in New York City on July 15-17.
