HanesBrands goes for Baldwin
HanesBrands, with apparel lines like Hanes, Champion, Playtex, Bali and Maidenform, has invested in Baldwin’s Precision Application Systems with a textile finishing technology that allows accurate and controlled placement and therefore, reduces use of end-of-line chemicals and water. This will help HanesBrands achieve its environmental sustainability goals.

Baldwin Technology’s exclusive and innovative Precision Application System realises substantial savings of water, chemistry and energy while increasing productivity. It improves output through greater flexibility, fewer production steps and increased uptime.

HanesBrands has set significant environmental stewardship goals to reduce energy consumption and water use.

Mike Abbott, HanesBrands global director of Research and Innovation, said: “Baldwin fulfilled our requirements to provide a solution that optimises our productivity while reducing our environmental impact.” HanesBrands thoroughly evaluated the technology for eight months in live production conditions with positive results. Abbott continued: “During the evaluation period of the system, we have had outstanding results in productivity increase, and we can clearly see that this technology will make a great contribution to our future efficiency and sustainability savings.”

Peter Hultberg, chief commercial officer at Baldwin, said: “We are honoured to partner with one of the world’s strongest apparel brands to help the company achieve not only its business goals, but also its corporate responsibility goals. The trust the HanesBrands team placed in Baldwin and our innovative application technology marks an important milestone for Baldwin and our quest to redefine the standards of sustainable textile finishing.”

The HanesBrands contract includes an option to supply 15 additional Precision Application Systems. (SV)
