1 A Christmas Message
FROM OUR PRESIDENT
Once again, as the year draws to a close, our thoughts turn to
Christmas; and once again all that this great religious anniver
sary means to Christian people all over the world is emphasized
and brought home to us as we relax from our every day tasks in
the company of family, friends, and loved ones.
Again it is a pleasure to report to you that Fieldcrest Mills,
Inc. has made considerable progress and improvement during
1956, our third year as an independent textile company. We still
have several serious problems which have not been solved, and
I can only assure you that these situations will continue to have
our best efforts toward a successful conclusion in the best interest
orf all concerned.
For the second successive" year all Fieldcrest people have
benefited from salary and wage increases. In addition to these
general increases, our sales volume has necessitated a large
amount of overtime operation. It is interesting to note that the
total wage and salary payroll of Fieldcrest Mills, Inc. for 1956
will be $19,114,222 compared with $16,882,904 for 1955,—an
increase of 13.2 per cent. I am sure we all derive pleasure and
satisfaction from the realization that these increased earnings are
bound, to result in a higher standard of living for Fieldcrest em
ployees and their families, as well as others in the local com
General economic conditions in our country are at a very high
level. If these conditions continue we expect that 1957 will be
another good year for Fieldcrest. We have ambitious plans for
the future and with your continued cooperation and good will
I am comfident that we will grow and be successful.
In behalf of our stockholders, our directors, and our entire
management group, I thank you for your good work during the
past year, and extend our sincere best wishes for a Merry Christ
mas and a Happy New’ Year to all orf you and your families.
