CHINA GROVE — The Swink Plant located on Main Street near China Grove has been a historically important center of commerce for Rowan County ever since it was opened by Cannon Mills. Recently, the property had its concrete surfaces, such as the parking lot, repaved.

The repaving was done by Waterbury Investment LLC, a California-based investment company that had acquired the property by 2022. The property is now listed for sale by Lee & Associates, a commercial real estate broker, at an asking price of $15 million as a warehouse or industrial space.
