GARDENA, Calif.—Alabama Governor Robert Bentley visits the new Next Level Apparel distribution facility in Ashford, Ala. The visit came as part of an open house event on Sept. 13. Local newspaper the Dothan Eagle reports that in addition to Bentley, Ashford mayor Jonathan Grecu and members of the area’s economic development community also attended.
Situated on a lot that previously housed a sewing facility, the new Next Level location is expected to bring 100 jobs to the local workforce. The new location also widens the company’s distribution network.
In a previous interview with Printwear, Next Level CSO Mark Seymour points out that the opening “moves Next Level product east of the Mississippi within a much closer shipping radius to our distribution partners.”
