Nash Textile Company Makes Life Safer For Many U.S. Servicemembers

Posted April 1, 2003

— Hundreds of U.S. servicemen and women serving in the Gulf region are safer, thanks to a textile company in Nash County.

The Holland family business, JHRG, creates protective fabrics for the military. They have been working quietly in Spring Hope since 1990.

The products are sewn in Nash County, but most of them are being used now in the Middle East by every deployed branch of the armed forces.

"All of our people are very conscientious and very proud that we're doing something to save people's lives as well as enhance their life," said Connie Holland, vice-president of JHRG.

The Spring Hope company has also done some non-military work. They developed some of the threads used by the late Dale Earnhardt's racing team.
