Abstract
The Fieldcrest Mills records primarily contain building plans, site plans, elevations, sections, details, structural and electrical systems drawings and engineering plans for Fieldcrest Mills. These plans are related to a variety of textile mill warehouses located in Leaksville, Spray, and later Eden, North Carolina.
Abstract
Fieldcrest Mills was a Marshall Fields Company that produced an assortment of textiles including blankets, bedspreads, towels, bed sheets, bath accessories, bath rugs, rugs and furniture coverings; their warehouses were located in Draper, Leaksville and Spray, North Carolina. These three towns combined in 1967 to become Eden, North Carolina. The company changed in 1986 when Fieldcrest Mills merged with Cannon Mills of Kannapolis, North Carolina, becoming Fieldcrest Cannon, Inc. Then in 1997 the Pillowtex Corporation acquired the Fieldcrest Cannon Company.

Historical Note

Benjamin Franklin Mebane first formed the company that became Fieldcrest Mills in 1893, in Spray, North Carolina. By 1905 he owned six mills in the area. Chicago retailer Marshall Field had helped to finance his business and when Benjamin Mebane had trouble repaying this debt Marshall Field took over Mebane's Spray Water Power and Land Co. By 1912 the takeover was complete and the company had become a subsidiary of Marshall Field and Co. Fieldcrest grew through the mid-1960s via a series of acquisitions and improvements. In 1979 profits began to slide and their hold on the market was not as strong as it had been. In 1986 Fieldcrest Mills acquired Cannon Mills, a textile mill company in Kannapolis, North Carolina. With that acquisition, Fieldcrest became Fieldcrest Cannon, Inc. Fieldcrest Cannon, however, continued to have financial difficulties. Pillowtex Corporation, a firm that specialized in pillows, sheets, and blankets, wanted to gain a way into the bath textile market and so, in 1997, bought Fieldcrest Cannon.

The Pillowtex Corporation gave this collection of plans to North Carolina State University Libraries. Pillowtex was founded in 1954 by John H. Silverthorne to manufacture bed pillows in Dallas, Texas. Throughout the company's history they acquired manufacturing plants all over the country; these acquisitions included plants in Atlanta, Chicago, Connecticut, Los Angeles, and eventually Fieldcrest Cannon in North Carolina. In September 1997, Pillowtex announced that it had agreed to acquire all of Fieldcrest Cannon. When it acquired Fieldcrest Cannon, Pillowtex took on a long-running labor dispute at the towel-maker's North Carolina factories. After a struggle dating back to the 1970s, the Union of Needletrades, Textile and Industrial Employees won the right to organize Fieldcrest's six plants in Kannapolis in 1999. In addition to this battle Pillowtex also put millions of dollars into updating Fieldcrest's computer system, but did not come up with a satisfactory result. Sales became depressed at the Fieldcrest Cannon division and starting with the second quarter of 1999, Pillowtex began to lose money. By the second quarter of 2000 they filed for bankruptcy. Although Pillowtex re-emerged in 2002 briefly, they filed again for the final time in 2003.
