VO-NAT The company first made yarn and


fabric in Danville in 1883.

By the 1970's it was one of the
largest employers in Virginia, with
more than 10-thousand workers.

But as textile manufacturing
began to suffer from foreign
competition, Dan River closed plants,

and cut jobs.

By March of last year it was in
Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

It came out of bankruptcy
protection last February, but put its
apparel division on the market.

By then it was employing 12- to-
16- hundred people in Danville.

Richard Flora is returning to his old
job.

Flora currently works for the
Roanoke County school system, but will
retire from that position in March.

He will stay on the Roanoke
County board of Supervisors. The two
entities don't have any partnerships or
agreements so Flora says it won't be a
conflict of interest.
