Historical Note

Kannapolis, North Carolina, was once home to Cannon Mills, at one time the largest manufacturer of sheets and towels in the world. Founded in 1906, the mills went through several ownership changes before being acquired by the Pillowtex Corporation in 1997. In 2003, Pillowtex Corporation closed its doors, laying off 4,340 people living in the Kannapolis area. In December 2004, David Murdock purchased the former Cannon Mills Plant One at auction and in 2005, in partnership with the University of North Carolina system, announced plans for the North Carolina Research Campus (NCRC), a 1.5 billion dollar scientific and economic revitalization project. This private-public venture serves to foster collaboration and further knowledge in biotechnology, nutrition, agriculture, and health. Since its groundbreaking in 2006, the NCRC has expanded to include universities, business partners, over 130 employees, and five buildings.
