EDEN, N.C. — A yarn manufacturing company will bring 85 "high paying" jobs to Eden next year. Rockingham County leaders and state officials announced Wednesday that Gildan Yarns purchased a new yarn-spinning facility off Summit Rd. It's a $4.7 million investment.
Gildan plans to open the Summit Rd facility in the first quarter of 2020. County and state leaders said the jobs are "high paying" but didn't give a specific wage.
