The Dixie Group recently announced that it has purchased all of the yarn manufacturing assets of the former Royalty Carpet Mills Porterville, Calif., yarn plant. Dixie will lease the Porterville building through a long term arrangement and will begin hiring former associates to manage and operate the yarn plant within the next two weeks. The output from this yarn plant will allow The Dixie Group to better service our West Coast customers and provide yarn capacity for future growth. Production is expected to begin the week of July 31.
