Steep rise in seamless apparel sales – Tefron

Nov '11
Tefron Ltd., a leading producer of seamless intimate apparel and engineered-for-performance (EFPTM) active wear, announced financial results for the third quarter of 2011.

Commenting on the results, Amit Meridor, Tefron's CEO, said: "I am pleased to report a significant increase in the strength of sales at Tefron in the third quarter. We saw very good strength in sales in the intimate apparel and active wear however, of particularly note was the steep 75% rise in sales in "seamless" apparel in the third quarter where we have reestablished ourselves as global leaders in the sector.

We also achieved significant results in bringing in new Mass-Market customers for the retail sector in North America. We are continuing to invest significantly in developing technologies. During the third quarter we deepened development of four groundbreaking new technologies, which will serve as a basis for continued growth of the company in the coming years."

Commenting on the sales growth, Arnon Tiberg, Tefron's Chairman, said, "Success in significantly increasing the number of new customers for Tefron worldwide, catapulted our sales volume in the third quarter over the equivalent period last year. In addition to the rise in Mass Market sales in the North American market, we have had a strong growth in sales supplied from the Far East.

Among the many factors contributing to the important broadening of our customer base are the improvements over the past year in the structure of our global sales operation, the introduction this year of new products in active wear and intimate apparel, and the development of new sales channels, including Home Shop Networking on TV channels and websites on the Internet."
