Steve Tarvin was born, raised and currently resides in Chickamauga, Georgia. He attended Gordon Lee High School, and later began working at Crystal Springs, a textile mill in Chickamauga, on January 13th, 1970. Starting at minimum wage, Steve worked his way up through the company, and served 30 years as President and CEO of the 750,000 square foot plant that specialized in the commission bleaching, dying, printing, and finishing of textiles.
Steve is particularly passionate about their work on protecting our troops with Defender M™ flame retardant camouflage fabric, involvement in helping his friend Toxy Haas of MossyOak start into the hunting camo business and their work in the spring of 2013 with Bill Jordan and the RealTree staff on their new Max5 camo soon to be seen on Duck Dynasty.
While Steve will not be involved in the future of Crystal Springs, he is optimistic about the possibilities that lie ahead for the facility. Steve and Jennifer plan to start their retirement on January 1, 2014, as they serve the people of Northwest Georgia on a full-time basis.
