Gildan Activewear Adding 87 Jobs in Berkeley County, South Carolina
"It's great news any time a first-rate company comes to South Carolina," said Governor Mark Sanford, "and Gildan's decision to put down roots in rural South Carolina serves as a reminder that we're making strides even in these challenging economic times. Over the last 26 years, Gildan Activewear has gone from being a family business to a major multinational company known for high-quality clothing, and South Carolina is incredibly proud to be part of that ongoing story."
Earlier this year, Gildan announced its plans for a new retail distribution center in Berkeley County, creating 250 jobs in the next four years.
"As announced in May at the inauguration of our distribution centre, Gildan's facility in Charleston will serve as the office location for our operations servicing the retail market. The area has provided us with an excellent business environment and we are pleased to grow our operations in South Carolina. We look forward to our continued growth here and appreciate all the support we have received from state and local officials," said Paul Parker, vice president of Operations of Gildan Activewear in Charleston.
