Gildan Begins Relocation To Charleston, Adds 87 Jobs
Gildan Activewear Inc., Montreal, has begun relocating its retail management and administrative
functions to its new distribution center and office building in Charleston, S.C., and expects to
add 87 new jobs.
Last year, the company announced it would close its Fort Payne, Ala., and Martinsville, Va., retail distribution centers and consolidate those operations to a facility that would house its retail operations and transfer 250 jobs to the new site. Gildan started hiring and inaugurated the distribution center in May. The company expects to fill the additional 87 positions by the end of this year.
