Jerash Holdings (US), a producer of high-quality textile goods for leading global brands, is preparing its first shipments of non-medical, washable, and breathable face masks to customers, and the first garment shipments to a new customer, designer and supplier of apparel to the promotional apparel market. All of Jerash's facilities maintain strict hygiene.

"We are excited to be preparing the first shipments of non-medical face mask products and our first shipments to a new customer we secured last year, one of the top suppliers in fashion blanks in the world market," said Samuel Choi, chairman and chief executive officer of Jerash. "We believe that many companies, including current and prospective Jerash customers, will want to offer comfortable, easy-to-wear branded face mask products for general consumer wear. We had begun to make non-medical face mask products at the start of the pandemic, prior to the national closure in Jordan, and leveraged this experience to manufacture products for the broader consumer market as countries around the world shift to re-opening their economies."

"We are beginning garment shipments to a new customer in the promotional apparel market as we continue to diversify our customer base and deploy the additional capacity of the new factory we opened in March 2020," said Gilbert Lee, chief financial officer of Jerash. "While we anticipate that existing customers will adjust orders to account for the COVID-19 outbreak's impact on the retail sector, we are simultaneously working to deploy any capacity those adjustments may create with new customers seeking to take advantage of Jerash's duty-free import status to the United States and European Union. We have also seen several orders that were initially put on hold being reactivated as economic forecasts continue to improve. In addition to ongoing orders, we are discussing additional categories of products we can produce with certain customers, in line with our goal to further diversify our product portfolio. Our focus is to emerge from this pandemic with a more diverse customer and product base as we continue to focus on our long-term growth plans."

Jordan continues to advance its reopening plans, including easing of work restrictions on local workers. Jerash initially resumed production with its dormitory-based workforce, enabling closer control over outside interactions as part of Jordan's carefully controlled response to the COVID-19 outbreak. Jerash's main factories in the Qualified Industrial Zone in Amman have resumed operations, as has the satellite sewing factory south of the city. All of Jerash's facilities are maintaining strict hygiene and health measures developed in close collaboration with Jordan's health ministry. These factories are producing orders to major global brand customers worldwide across a growing range of garment categories.

"We have worked closely with the Jordanian government to plan and implement best practices to protect our workers and mitigate the risks associated with the COVID-19 outbreak," said Lee. "Jordan responded swiftly and effectively to limit the spread of COVID-19 in March and April, and we are now doing our part as a responsible employer to continue protecting our workers and their families as we increase production volumes in order to meet growing demand from our customers, many of whom use Jerash as a key strategic supplier."
