AAFA is a national trade association representing apparel, footwear and other sewn products companies and their suppliers.

“With his 25 years of experience in apparel production and sourcing, Ben DeVito has lived all over the United States and is now settled in Central Pennsylvania,” a TUV SUD press release stated.

As global sales and technical director Softlines at TÜV SÜD, DeVito assists manufacturers and retailers to comply with global regulations and to implement QA and compliance programs.

“I look forward to supporting the AAFA in its mission to improve product safety for our consumers and also represent the industry on important safety issues,” Ben DeVito also said.

“As an expert in product safety, quality, and compliance, Ben has been a frequent contributor to the group and our programs, and we're delighted he is now serving as vice-chair of the PSC,” Herman added.

Devito's role will be to serve the committee and support the chairman by advancing the AAFA's agenda.
