Legwear Development for Entrepreneurs

Prerequisite Before registering for our Legwear Development for Entrepreneurs' class, have you taken our Hosiery Application yet?

This two-day opportunity will educate you about the product that you wish to build your business around. The Legwear Development course covers:

  • The basics of hosiery knitting, dyeing, finishing, and testing quality of the manufacturing process
  • Tour our facilities to view first hand knitting, finishing and testing equipment
  • Discuss the necessary steps to increase your chances of success in the hosiery industry
  • Business development resources to help make sure that you cover your bases as you build your business plan
  • Packaging for your product will also be discussed

You will have access to one on one counseling from our staff with over a combined 150 years of manufacturing experience. Lastly, if your company is ready for a manufacturer we will discuss sourcing your product with you.

We want your company to be successful and prepare you to articulate to a manufacturer exactly what you want.

The cost of Legwear Development is $800 for two days per company with a maximum of 2 participants per company and will be limited to 3 companies. Arrangements can made for exceptions by contacting us.

The event will be held at our location at the Manufacturing Solutions Center, 301 Conover Station SE, Conover, NC 28613.
