Mayodan Mayor Jeff Bullins is excited about the plant.
"I haven't heard any definite plans, but they're looking to go in limited production this month," Bullins
The mayor says he
has heard secondhand from economic developers that Bridgestone's move to one of the empty Unifi buildings has sparked interest in the surrounding former Unifi buildings near Ayersville Road.Unifi closed the Mayodan
plant in 2005 to consolidate its operations in Madison. Bullins
said the increased traffic near the Bridgestone
plant will add business to nearby restaurants and other businesses.
"Just to say it was one of the top news stories this year ? moving from Miami to Mayodan
, North Carolina, causes people to take notice," Bullins
