Northeast Textiles Will Cease Operations at Year End

GAFFNEY, S.C.—Northeast Textiles, a specialist in hospitality and healthcare fabrics, is closing its doors at year end after 33 years in business.

A letter was sent to its customers in mid-November alerting them to this decision. The letter blamed several factors for the closing, including the advent of the all-white bed in the hotel industry and the resulting reduction in the use of printed fabrics in hotel rooms. Northeast Textiles was primarily a transfer print producer. The company reportedly had sales under $10 million and was owned by the Steffens family.

Northeast is now in the process of selling off its base fabric inventory and heat transfer equipment. Northeast has been operating in a 28,000-square-foot plant on six acres, which is also for sale.

A conversation with Northeast Textiles’s president, Denise Evans, did not result in any further information.
