Gildan’s Vertically-Integrated Approach to Making Apparel Better
Gildan’s ownership of its facilities provides it with oversight and control over almost every stage of the production process – starting with the spinning of USA cotton into yarn, to textile production, sewing and finally distribution. This vertical integration allows the company to uncover efficiencies while ensuring safe and healthy work environments for its employees, sustainable solutions in its operations and valuable contributions to its communities.
Over the past 10 years, Gildan has invested over $1.5 billion in new technology, innovation and sustainable solutions. Gildan owns and operates over 25 manufacturing facilities in 7 different countries and employs over 50,000 direct people worldwide.
