Kong-based apparel product manufacturer China Ting Group to build a dyeing and finishing plant in
Zhejiang province, southeast of Shanghai. The company also will build a warehouse and distribution
center at the same location, and will invest $20 million in the combined projects.

president, Interior Fabrics Division. “A manufacturing base in China is critical to support our
strategy both domestically and abroad.”
