Incorporated on November 4, 1927, by Cason J. Callaway, Ira B. Grimes, and Henry G. Smith. This plant is a distinctive idea in the diversification of production in the South. The manufacture of rugs in the plant has always been a source of interest to the passing visitor, because the use of jacquard looms and other machines is so different from those of the ordinary cotton mills. The beauty and variety of the rugs had commended them to a widespread patronage in America.
