Taiwan textile firms heed 'Make-in-USA' call
Feb '17
Echoing President Donald Trump’s call to ‘Make in USA’, various Taiwanese textile and apparel producers are planning to set up production facilities or warehouses in the US. This decision by these Taiwanese companies is a major shift from the trend of producing textiles and apparels in Asia, since all these companies have large production bases in Asia.

A Taiwanese daily reported that Makalot Industrial Co, a big apparel manufacturer is planning to set up a plant in the US, for which it is conducting feasibility studies. The company is also mulling investing in facilities in the Dominican Republic and Haiti.

Everest Textile, a subsidiary of the Far Eastern Group has acquired an existing plant in North Carolina, and is refurbishing the production lines, which would produce functional fabrics as well as garments.

The biggest Taiwanese nylon chips and yarn producer, Li Peng Enterprise is planning to open a warehouse in the US, where it will store its products produced in Taiwan and other Southeast Asian countries. The warehouse will mainly cater to the US market. (AR)
