Frontier Spinning Mills Logistic Support Project (Cotton Ball)

Lee County
Program Area:
Economic Catalyst Program
County of Applicant:

This Golden LEAF grant will allow Lee County to purchase pallets that it will lease to Frontier Spinning. Frontier has been using ports in Florida and Louisiana for shipments, and has explored moving production facilities closer to ports in the Gulf area, which would have resulted in the loss of Frontier jobs in North Carolina and may have led to decreased sales of North Carolina cotton to Frontier. With these pallets, Frontier will be able to ship its products from North Carolina ports at a more economical cost. The purchase of the pallets will allow Frontier to maintain its employment of 1014 employees in North Carolina and its purchase of over 165,000 bales of North Carolina cotton per year.
