Business leaders from the state and across the nation gathered in Winston-Salem in June to pay tribute to and to review the career of P. Huber Hanes Sr., who is retiring from active management of the P.H. Hanes Knitting Company. The company organized by him, his father, and other family members in the early years of the 20th-century grew to be one of the country's largest manufacturers of knitted underwear.
The P.H. Hanes Knitting Company began in 1903 with 150 employees in a plant just north of Winston-Salem. Today the company has grown to 4,500 employees. The article traces the history of the company. The name Hanes is synonymous with hosiery, socks, and undergarments.
