WORK HERE STRONG BUSINESS HISTORY Fort Mill has a strong business history. In 1887, Samuel Elliott White founded Fort Mill Manufacturing, which grew to become Springs Industries under the leadership of his descendants. From this initial textile mill, the company became one of the largest worldwide producers of sheets, towels, and other linen products. His grandson, Elliott White Springs, pioneered the way linens are marketed and sold and made the Springmaid label ubiquitous in homes around the world. That excellence continues today for companies in a wide range of industries. These are just a few of the top companies who have major operations based here. And Fort Mill is not only a great place for large-scale corporate operations. Medium-sized companies and small businesses alike will find a business-friendly atmosphere and access to an educated and skilled workforce.
