History

About The Heddle

Steel Heddle Philadelphia opened its textile manufacturing facility here in Greenville, SC in 1923. What is now known as “The Heddle” served the industry until 2001 when it filed bankruptcy and was eventually bought out in the 2000’s.  

The Steel Heddle Corporation relocated and the property sat vacant until it was later purchased and coined, “The Heddle” around 2014. 

Still a leading role in manufacturing and trade, “The Heddle’ houses years of history and encompasses the revitalization and preservation this property and its history deserves. 

“Most days you will find someone walking the halls that once worked here. It is always a treat to see their appreciation of the buildings preservation and continued use!” said Troy Styles, who owns a coffee manufacturing company at “The Heddle.”

Since 1923, this site has been the epicenter of manufacturing and trade in the Upstate of South Carolina.
