FAIRFIELD, NJ / ACCESSWIRE / July 18, 2022 / Jerash Holdings (US), Inc. (NASDAQ:JRSH), a premium manufacturer and exporter of custom, ready-made, sportswear and outerwear for leading global brands, today announced the addition of a new prominent lifestyle branded customer, Skechers, known for its footwear and a growing range of apparel offerings.
"We are thrilled to add Skechers to our growing roster of high-profile, quality global apparel brands, as we continue our goal to expand and further diversify our customer base," said Sam Choi, Jerash's chairman and chief executive officer. "Our initial order from Skechers is to produce women's polos, starting in the third quarter of 2022, and represents an estimate of approximately 500,000 pieces annually, based on our current projection.
"The continued growth of Jerash's offerings to global branded customers is a testament to the Company's reputation as a trusted, top-quality garment manufacturer in Jordan, capable of producing highly complex apparel. Moreover, our customers benefit from the free-trade agreements with the U.S. and the EU.
"Jerash is well positioned to capture increasing opportunities in the region, as more companies move their production away from the Far East because of higher tariffs, rising labor costs, and the pandemic shutdowns," Choi added.
