Divatex embraces production
Home & Textiles Today Staff -- Home Textiles Today, January 9, 2004
NEW YORK — Product developer/sourcer Divatex has opened a 200,000-square-foot cut-and-sew warehouse operation in the south, its first production facility.
The company also is expanding abroad, preparing to open its first office in China.
The move into domestic production supports Divatex's strategy of becoming a supplier of in-line, high-volume programs. The highly automated production facility, located in Greenville, S.C., is capable of pumping out up to 1.5 million sheet sets annually. The cut-and-sew unit will be used to meet rapid-replenishment orders and cut the costs involved when quick turn-around orders sometimes ship by air freight.
"Because we know the import business so well, we also understand what kind of support it needs," said president Avi Gross. "It's about flexibility, service and being in-stock every day."
