    ASHEVILLE, N.C., Nov. 1 /PRNewswire/ -- A panel of manufacturing


executives concluded today that companies that prosper will be those that are "world class."
    "Those who do not implement world class manufacturing will not survive this decade," said Henry C. Humphreys Jr., president of National Spinning Co., Inc., at the 85th annual meeting of the North Carolina Textile Manufacturers Association (NCTMA).
    Humphreys, the second vice president of NCTMA, said world class manufacturing starts with state-of-the-art technology, computer-integrated manufacturing and education.
    "We must help employees build their level of knowledge so that they can participate in the changing culture," he said.
    Education was also emphasized by Paul G. Gillease, vice president and general manager of E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Company in Wilmington, Del.  "We need to build teamwork and make the individual feel he belongs."
    Andrew T. Hill, director of group quality for the automotive division of Milwaukee-based Johnson Controls, Inc., defined world class manufacturing as "continually exceeding customers' expectations."
    He said there should be continuous improvement to strengthen the bond between customers and suppliers.
    At the conclusion of the meeting, the membership elected new officers for the next year.  Elected president was Charles G. Buie Jr., of Charles Craft, Inc. in Laurinburg, S.C.  Elected as first vice president was Henry C. Humphreys Jr., of National Spinning Co., Inc. in Washington, N.C.  The new second vice president is George C. Waldrep Jr., of Burlington House Decorative Fabrics in Burlington, N.C.
