Wrights (textile manufacturers)

Wright & Sons remained independent until 1985, when a group of shareholders—including a grandson of the founder—enabled the Newell Company to acquire a minority share in the company; within month that share grew until it acquire control over the company. In 1989 Boye Needle Company was merged into Wrights.
