About This Company

In 1898, the British-owned English Sewing Company purchased and merged 13 independent thread and yarn companies, including The Merrick Thread Company of Holyoke, forming the American Thread Company.  As the years progressed, American Thread employed various immigrant groups in mills scattered from Connecticut to Maine.  Working conditions in the mills were hard: cold in the winter and hot in the summer, with long work days of 12 to 14 hours in a dusty and loud environment.  Children were often employed because they could be paid less for their labor, and child-labor laws were often ignored.

At the time of its formation, the American Thread Company was the largest thread company in the world, and it remained a successful business throughout the 20th century, finally leaving New England and relocating to North Carolina in 1985.
