Greenwood Mills was founded in 1889 and for more than a century was Greenwood County, South Carolina’s largest employer. It operates textile mills specializing in woven fabrics for the apparel industry, home furnishings, industrial, military uniforms, and protective clothing. From the beginning, the company has been known for its consistent values, high quality, and unparalleled service that made up the cornerstone put in place by James Cuthbert Self when he became the company’s president one hundred years ago. The company remains privately held by the Self family of Greenwood, South Carolina.
SingleSource Apparel (SSA) was formed in 1995 as a wholly owned subsidiary of Greenwood Mills, Inc. SSA has enjoyed rapid and continuous growth and is recognized as one of the largest non-branded apparel manufacturers. As such, it specializes in providing full-package, turn-key manufacturing to some of America’s most prominent apparel brands. Over 5,000 people are employed by SSA’s owned and operated plants and captive contractors.
From the outset, SSA has avoided the temptation to compete with its customers by creating or acquiring brands, choosing instead to continuously refine the industry’s best infrastructure for full-package manufacturing. SSA strives to carry forward our parent company’s 118 year history of producing quality products at competitive prices while maintaining integrity and fair dealings with our customers, manufacturing partners, vendors, and our associates. SSA’s record of compliance with established employment and environmental standards is virtually unmatched in the industry.
