company in the United States After several years of successfully operating the companies they sold American National Can Company to a French conglomerate Since the sale they have been involved in numerous other companies Q Has US District Judge Thomas Lambros of Cleveland approved the sale of DWG to Train A From early on Judge Lam bros was instrumental in spurring along the process of the buyout He was involved from the start to finish and ruled favorably on the sale the day before the closing which was held on April 30 Q What do you see happening to the Graniteville Co in the next five years A Since the next five years will be my last spanning over a career of 43 years in the business I want to position the company and its people for a great future in the next century As you know we have spent over million in the last five years to upgrade our equip ment and machinery This is only the beginning Another million will be spent in 1993 with future expenditures projected over the next five years The Train Group has assured us we can continue to make these expenditures as long as profits can justify them Thats fair Granitevilles sales margins and product lines will show steady growth over the next five years Q Do you see any positive im pacts of the change of ownership A As I mentioned earlier this is a good marriage between compa nies with good reputations and po tential Triarc believes in building partnerships with customers and suppliers So do we at Graniteville In only two short weeks weve gained great respect of those at Triarc To the letter they have de livered everything promised therefore positive impacts are abundant Q In the last couple of years Graniteville has come up with a theme to get employees involved in the company Do you have one this year A As a matter of fact we do Coming off the best year in history and coupling that with other suc cessful years we decided this years theme would be managing success I think its probably easi er to manage failure as you contin ually find opportunity areas to im prove We must remember success is never final competitors and others are always trying to de throne the leader and most suc cessful companies Whatever mea sure of success weve gained must be safeguarded Q What does business look like today A Our soldahead position has never been higher Our innovative expertise has positioned us well in the markets we serve Graniteville associates have better job security than anytime in the history of the company We are currently finish ing twice the number of yards we can produce internally Our imme diate need is another grey mill however thats not in the offering until we get our existing plants completely modernized and competitive South Carolina On Bottom Of TopJobs List By The Associated Press WASHINGTON Colorado Maryland Utah and Washington top the honor roll of states in terms of their potential to attract new businesses providing highpaying jobs according to an annual sur vey released today The Corporation for Enterprise Development gave those states the highest marks in a variety of cate gories designed to show which ar eas of the country have the healthi est economies and businesses currently and are doing the most to create highpaying jobs in the future At the other end of the scale the research organization backed fi nancially by foundations and labor unions gave its lowest grades to the states of Louisiana Oklahoma and South Carolina We have consistently found that states with high grades in invest ment in the fundamentals of state resources people technology fi nancial institutions and infrastruc ture also demonstrate high grades in their ability to attract jobs at good wages said Brian Dabson president of the research corporation 1601
