It’s been hard to catch our breath this year. Running around to all the parties at 100 takes its toll. Seriously, what a year this has been and there’s more to come. Our family has been overwhelmed with the love and support of customers, employees, friends and partners here and abroad.
I wanted to take a moment to reflect on our employee party.
Just over 150 of Capel Rugs’ corporate, retail and factory employees got together in Troy at our oldest rug making facility for a fun filled afternoon.
We have the most loving, dedicated employees anywhere, some have been with us fifty plus years. The talent among our staff is unparalleled.
Without them, we would not be here to celebrate this amazing milestone of 100 years in business.
The legacy of our grandfather, A. Leon Capel, continues, and we hope for another 100 years with the HQ and three production facilities in Troy as a fully vertical business. Every Capel braid starts in the basement of the historic Smitherman Cotton Mill in Troy. From basic raw cotton and wool, the fibers are carded, dyed, spun, braided and sewn onsite.
Capel Rugs also has production facilities in Dalton, GA, a warehouse in Aberdeen, NC, and an outlet store network.
The party is not over. Look for us at July markets in Las Vegas and Atlanta. Of course, the big one, not to miss is High Point this fall. Lots of surprises and new things coming.
Please let us hear from you. We love the stories. Post something to our Face Book, Twitter, or Pinterest sites. Or just write – PO Box 826, Troy, NC 27371.
Here are just a few images from the party. See the full album @capelrugs on Face Book.
