JLA Home Fabrics hires Seymour, moving headquarters

Greensboro, N.C. – John Seymour has joined JLA Home Fabrics as national sales manager.

Seymour has been with Quaker Fabric for 12 years as southeast sales manager and manager of national accounts. At JLA, he reports to George Kerr, president, and fills a position that has been open for some time following the resignation of Lew Magrish. Earlier he had been with Covington and prior to that with Joan Fabrics.

JLA Home Fabrics will move to new headquarters and warehouse facilities in Reidsville, N.C. on Aug. 10. The new facility will consist of 10,000 square feet of office and showroom and 110,000 square feet of warehouse.

The company will retain its showroom in Market Square Tower in High Point, N.C., Kerr said, but will give up its warehouse in Gastonia, N.C. and its office here.
