American & Efird (A&E), Mount Holly, N.C., celebrated its 125th anniversary this month.
Founded in 1891 as Nims Manufacturing, the company has grown to become a major manufacturer and distributor of industrial and consumer sewing thread, embroidery thread and technical textiles.
Its founding values, including integrity, an uninterrupted quest for quality and innovation, a respect for its associates’ safety and well-being, and a commitment to the communities in which it operates, still define A&E today, according to the company.

In addition, we have loyal and long-term customers who have supported A&E by using our products and services. We are here today because of the success of those who worked here before us, and as we celebrate the past, we are very excited with a bright future for both our company and our associates.”
