Vertical Textiles Gains Cut-And-Sew Facility In Haiti
Miami-based Vertical Textiles a full-package producer with knitting, dyeing and finishing operations in Miami and cutting and sewing operations in Hispaniola has partnered with Caribbean Apparel Manufacturing S.A. a cut-and-sew facility in Haiti to offer full-package apparel production as a result of the recently enacted Haitian Hemispheric Opportunity Through Partnership For Encouragement Act (HOPE) trade preference program.
As a result, Vertical Textiles will finish fabrics made from imported inputs at its Miami facility, and send them to Haiti for final assembly. The company expects the partnership and resulting new supply chain to reduce costs by 30 percent, which will ultimately enable Vertical Textiles to offer its customers greater speed-to-market value.
