Tian Yuan Garments Plans Expansion of Little Rock, Arkansas, Manufacturing Center

Tian Yuan Garments will expand its new manufacturing facility in Little Rock, Arkansas. Them company plans to increase its initial investment by another $10 million and add 400 associates to its workforce of 160 employees.

“We welcome textile jobs back to Arkansas,” said Governor Asa Hutchinson. “The amount of direct foreign investment into the state is getting international attention right now. We still make things in Arkansas, and our workforce is prepared to handle manufacturing of all kinds. We’re thrilled to see the additional investment.”

Governor Hutchinson announced the Tian Yuan Garments project in October 2016 during his economic trade mission to China. At the time, the company announced it would invest $20 million for equipment, to purchase a building, and make capital improvements to the building. The additional $10 million will bring total investment to $30 million.

The company, which operates at the Port of Little Rock, produces sportswear for Adidas and other brands. At peak production, Ty Garments plans to make more than four million garments annually.

“This project is a direct result of the Governor’s visit to China in 2016,” said Arkansas Economic Development Commission Executive Director Mike Preston. “TY Garment’s decision to increase investment demonstrates the faith that the company has in our state to meet their needs. We welcome those interested to contact the company and apply for a job.”
