Lincoln County Fabricators was started by the late Jerry F. Carpenter in 1972. What started out as a 1-man welding operation in Jerry’s backyard has now grown into a world-wide leader in the selling and manufacturing of textile tube creels, side creels, sock creels, cloth inspection machines, as well as many other textile related products. Our current location is a 55,000 sq. ft facility located at 513 Jason Rd in Lincolnton, NC. Still a family owned and operated business, the day to day operations of the company are overseen by Jerry’s two sons, Kenny and David Carpenter.

While the textile industry in the United States has been severely hurt in the last 15-20 years due to cheap imports and unfair trade practices, Lincoln County Fabricators has continued to grow and prosper in these difficult economic times, largely in part to our commitment to unsurpassed product quality, innovative new product designs, highly skilled and trained employees, and an ongoing positive relationship with our customers.

While our customer base is large, we regularly manufacture products for the companies that represent the backbone of the worldwide textile industry, including Gildan Activewear, Hanesbrands, Fruit of the Loom, Vanguard Pailung, Russell Brands, Delta Apparel, Anvil, Kayser-Roth as well as many others. Simply put, the clothes on your back, the socks on your feet, and yes, even your underwear was more than likely produced with equipment supplied by Lincoln County Fabricators. Our products are found in textile plants all over the world, including Honduras, Dominican Republic, China, Pakistan, Turkey, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, Ireland, El Salvador, South Africa, Germany, Brazil as well as many others.
