Inspiring the Next Generation …

Did you know that our Senior Vice President of Sales, Chad Fisher, has a degree in Textile-Chemical Engineering? Quite a career change to say the least! If you ask him to breakdown the composition of the root chemical in the synthetic yarn (what?!?!) he could probably tell you and he would do it with incredible energy and excitement!

Chad’s personality and knowledge of the Hospitality industry (as well as bio-chemistry) made him the perfect candidate to meet with a young group of individuals touring our facility. As part of a growing community in Loris, SC Integra Fabrics feels it’s absolutely necessary to reach out and help nurture the future generation. When asked to participate in a brief “training session” – we were absolutely on board!

SC Works is an organization within the KRA Corporation, a national leader in performance-based workforce development programs since 1981.
