Our Core Values are Customer Focus, Operational Excellence, Teamwork, Integrity, Diversity and Community Service. In an effort to support our local communities Guilford Specialty Products employees focus on support in their local communities.
The Wilmington Sales Office locally supports Nourish NC with meal contributions and volunteer support to prepare meals for children in the community at risk of not being provided nourishment when they are not in school. Meal kits are prepared and delivered to families across the region for weekends as well as spring, winter, and summer breaks.
The Pine Grove Knit Mill and Dying and Finishing plant also provide tremendous support for their community. Guilford fabric has donated to the local SPCA chapter for animal blankets in the winter. Guilford Pine Grove employees partner with the local VFW to provide care packages to local deployed soldiers and have an annual community trash pick-up day.
Both offices support local families and elementary schools during the holidays with toys, blankets, school supplies, and food.
In addition to other measures, Guilford’s Pine Grove facility has implemented innovative technologies to reduce its global footprint. The Pine Grove Methane Project reduces the plant’s fuel oil consumption as well as the release of harmful methane gas into the atmosphere by the local landfill. The plant uses methane gas, piped in from the landfill, to produce steam that runs the plant's boilers. 75% of all thermal needs are generated by land fill gas.
