Lectra, the world leader in integrated technology solutions dedicated to industries using soft materials -- textiles, leather, industrial fabrics, and composite materials -- announced its customer, Hanesbrands Inc. was named to the prestigious Top Innovators list of 2010 by Apparel Magazine.

Lectra nominated Hanesbrands earlier this year and was proud to present the award to Todd Dickson, Director of Supply Chain Technical Services, at Hanesbrands during the SPESA Expo 2010.

Apparel's third annual Top Innovators awards salute the key visionary organizations that are shaping the industry through creativity, determination, and innovative strategies.

As the largest seller of apparel essentials in the US (by sales volume), Hanesbrands must deliver sound products and meet consumer expectation ensuring maximum quality, flexibility and production of their apparel goods. In order to do this, Hanesbrands has integrated Lectra Vector automated cutting solutions in various company-run facilities around the globe.

"Investing in Lectra value-added solutions has allowed us to maintain production volume and meet market demands," said Todd Dickson, Director of Supply Chain Technical Services, at Hanesbrands. "We are thrilled to be recognized as a Top Innovator for 2010, and we are committed to anticipating what consumers want and innovating to meet those needs in comfort, fit, and value, while maintaining the right touch with consumer trends.

In addition to their commitment to adopting the latest in technology advancements, Hanesbrands continues to lead the way in environmental responsibility as well as local and global community spirit. Hanesbrands is building a state-of-the-art textile manufacturing plant in Nanjing, China, to Green Building Council standards, which is expected to be the first textile plant in the world to achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design certification.

Hanesbrands has also secured 2,000 tents to donate to employees of its contract sewing operations in Haiti as part of the company's efforts to help feed, clothe, shelter and employ thousands of earthquake victims.
