Commenting on developments at Tefron in the period, Amit Meridor, Tefron's  CEO said: "In the second quarter of 2012, Tefron recorded an increase of 22.2% in the seamless apparel sector sales. This very positive operational result, as well as the stronger financial results we reported are a direct outcome of the  large scale investments that we have made at Tefron over the past two years, particularly in the development of new products and the improvement in product mix. These important investments, combined with our advance production capabilities in Israel and more recently established production operations in China, have enabled Tefron to offer a full and competitive basket of solutions to customers and to solidify our position as the global leader in seamless technology.

During Tefron's recent turnaround period, we have made major improvements in production efficiencies and, equally important, we have worked to establish a culture of streamlining costs at all levels.  These efforts have allowed us to stay competitive and turn a positive operating profit and net profit despite the increase in the price of raw materials and additional costs.
