'Global' giant just a shadow here

-A A +A
By The Staff

Once-mighty Springs Industries is just a shadow of itself in Lancaster and Chester counties.

For years, the Fort Mill-based company, now called Springs Global, was the largest employer in Lancaster, Chester and York counties. It was also the largest taxpayer in South Carolina.

At its peak about 20 years ago, the company employed 17,000 people in South Carolina, more people than any other company.

But as 2007 comes to a close, those jobs have dwindled to just a mere fraction of what it had at the height of the company's North American textile dominance.
