American & Efird Signs Licensing Agreement With Textil El Amazonas

American & Efird Inc. (A&E) — a Mount Holly, N.C.-based manufacturer and distributor of industrial and consumer sewing thread, embroidery thread and technical textiles — has licensed Textil El Amazonas S.A. — a Peru-based manufacturer of industrial and consumer sewing thread — to manufacture A&E's products and supply them to the Peruvian market.

"A&E is very excited about this new arrangement which allows for the local manufacturing and delivery of A&E's well-known worldwide brands," said Larry McGee, vice president – sales Americas, A&E. "Peru continues to grow as an international apparel exporter and fashion center, and having the opportunity to serve our global customers locally through Textil El Amazonas is significant."

"For us, signing a license agreement with a prestigious international company such as A&E is a very important step towards a new stage of business where we will be able to increase our worldwide connections and be able to advance our product offering," said Flavio Gerbolini, president of the Board of Directors, Textil El Amazonas. "Our years of experience combined with the valuable resources of A&E, will allow us to offer our clients, whether brand or manufacturer, the very best in products and service."
