American & Efird Signs Licensing Agreement With Textil El Amazonas

American & Efird Inc. (A&E) — a Mount Holly, N.C.-based manufacturer and distributor of industrial and consumer sewing thread, embroidery thread and technical textiles — has licensed Textil El Amazonas S.A. — a Peru-based manufacturer of industrial and consumer sewing thread — to manufacture A&E's products and supply them to the Peruvian market.

"A&E is very excited about this new arrangement which allows for the local manufacturing and delivery of A&E's well-known worldwide brands," said Larry McGee, vice president – sales Americas, A&E. "Peru continues to grow as an international apparel exporter and fashion center, and having the opportunity to serve our global customers locally through Textil El Amazonas is significant."
