In other news, Gildan has recently announced the purchase of a sizable piece of land in Bangladesh as part of the company’s new capacity expansion initiative to develop large-scale vertically-integrated manufacturing in South-east Asia.
The land was purchased for approximately $45 million and will be used to expand Gildan’s global textile and sewing operations. The plan consists of the development of a large multi-plant manufacturing complex which is currently expected to include two large textile facilities and related sewing operations. Once fully operational, this complex is expected to provide capacity to service over $500 million in sales. The first textile facility will built during the next 24 months and production is expected to start in the latter part of 2021.
