ORWIGSBURG, Pa. — Nestled along the rolling hills of eastern Pennsylvania lies an oddity — at once a vestige of a bygone era and a beacon pioneering the potential of a new age in American manufacturing.
It’s a family-owned, fully integrated, state-of-the-art knitwear factory called Fessler USA. Owned and operated by the Meck family, the 155,000-square-foot facility serves as company headquarters, manufacturing plant, warehouse distribution site and hub for shipping goods to satellite sewing factories in the area.
