Gildan Activewear Inc., Montreal, has announced it will build a new manufacturing facility in its Rio Nance complex in Honduras. The new plant will help it meet its production capacity needs until its planned facility in Costa Rica goes on-line in fiscal year (FY) 2017. The Rio Nance addition also will help Gildan meet its sales growth target for higher-end products, planned for FY 2016, and optimize production efficiencies at its other textile plants. Gildan expects the Rio Nance addition and the planned Costa Rica plant will increase the company’s overall production capacity by 40 percent compared with the capacity exit rate at the end of FY 2014.

Gildan also has signed a definitive agreement to acquire substantially all of the assets of Northfield, Vt.-based Comfort Colors, a supplier of garment-dyed undecorated basic T-shirts and sweatshirts for the North American printwear market, for a total purchase price of approximately U.S. $100 million. The acquisition of Comfort Colors reinforces Gildan’s strategy to increase its penetration of the growing fashion basics segment of the North American printwear market.

North Charleston, S.C.-based Vapor Apparel has announced it will open a 300,000-ft2 cut-and-sew facility in Union, S.C. The company manufactures performance apparel and offers sublimation print-on-demand services; and has twice been named one of the 25 fastest-growing companies in South Carolina over the past five years. Vapor Apparel reports its $1.3 million investment will complement its existing production plant in North Charleston, and will create 114 jobs over the next five years. “It is an honor to bring sewing jobs back to South Carolina,” said Jackson Burnett, co-founder and president, Vapor Apparel. “Union is textile country. It has a history in the industry. These jobs are connected to technology through Print-On-Demand markets, which we will continue to invest in moving forward.”
