Divatex Home Fashions, a designer and manufacturer of comforters, bedding, towels and curtains is consolidating it operations in Piedmont, S.C., Roxboro, N.C., and Atlanta into a new 266,000 SF facility on Blackstock Road in Spartanburg.
Divatex is a wholly owned subsidiary of Himatsingka Group, an India-based luxury home textile brands company. The Spartanburg facility will be primarily a distribution center with some office functions. According to Alan Forman, chief financial officer, Divatex “will have about 75 positions in Spartanburg.”
Forman stated that the new distribution center is slated to open in July.
The company primarily imports textiles from China and India.
Tratt Properties LLC, a national industrial development and investment firm, arranged the 10-year lease to Divatex. Tratt acquired the 563,210 SF facility in 2007, which was fully occupied by Adidas at the time. The remaining 297,210 SF will be one of the largest potential vacancies in the Greenville/Spartanburg submarket beginning in 2014.
