ln 1921, a textile mill owner named Craig and an engineer
named Hornbuckle built a dyeing machine that was far ahead of the machinery available at
the time. This led to the creation of Gaston County Dyeing Machine Company.
They began to build these machines in a factory in Stanley, North
Carolina, USA. Leading the way in the textile industry, they continued to improve
the equipment by introducing new products.
Through the 1950's and 1960's, Gaston County continued to lead the way,
introducing the Cloth Beam Dyeing Machine, and the Jet Dyeing Machine to the industry. In
the late 60's, a new facility was constructed in Mt. Holly, North Carolina.
In the 70's, Gaston County moved its corporate offices to the Mt. Holly
location, and now encompasses over 340,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing space. Throughout the
70's, 80's and 90's, Gaston County has continued to upgrade their operations and expand
