Kentwool celebrates 175 years

July 24th, 2018 / By: / Industry News, News

Kentwool, the fifth-generation family-owned American textile innovator, is celebrating its 175th anniversary this year. Though many of its peers have moved operations abroad, the company continues to make its premium products entirely in the U.S. The Greenville, S.C.-based company employs 81 people between its Pickens manufacturing facility and Greenville offices. Kentwool’s C.E.O., noted Greenville philanthropist Mark Kent, passed away unexpectedly last fall; his wife Kimberly V. Kent, formerly corporate counsel for Kentwool, is now at the company’s helm.
