Chinese Manufacturer Joins COTTON USA Licensing Program
A new COTTON USA licensee in China will use 100% U.S. cotton to produce 840,000 polo shirts. Jinan Yuanshou Knitting Co., Ltd.–a company with 57 years of experience manufacturing knitted fabrics and garments in China–will supply the shirts to the Japanese market.
“U.S. cotton is getting more involved with the daily production, as well as brings more value in the market development,” Mr. Wang Zhaoze, chief engineer and head of cotton purchases for Jinan Yuanshou Knitting Co., Ltd., said.
Jinan Yuanshou Knitting Co., Ltd. was founded in 1958 and specializes in manufacturing knitted fabrics and garments to supply overseas, as well as to the domestic market. The firm is an integrated textile manufacturer in Jinan City, with several mills in the Shandong Province, as well as garment factories in Mexico and Bangladesh. The company set up its own spinning mill in Shandong two years ago, in order to make the supply chain more manageable and valuable.
