Proximity Mills Denim

White Oak Legacy Foundation, Inc. established Proximity Manufacturing Company in 2021 as a for-profit subsidiary that will operate as a textile manufacturing arm of the non-profit organization. Operations are based at the former White Oak Plant, first opened in 1905 in NE Greensboro. Denim Manufacturing adds breadth to educational programming, offers skilled workforce development and employment opportunities, and allows WOLF to become a pillar in the community through historical preservation of the very cloth that wove our city together and built a 125+ year legacy for Greensboro.
