Bud Kilby, the president and CEO of Renfro Corp., is shown during a recent Mount Airy Board of Commissioners meeting when the company received a certificate of appreciation from Mayor Deborah Cochran. This was part of an ongoing program in which city officials recognize older local businesses. Renfro, a market leader in the sock industry, was founded here in 1921 and now has about 5, 000 employees worldwide.
