WestPoint Stevens Targets Middle Eastern Markets

WestPoint Stevens Inc., West Point, Ga., has signed sales and distribution, and licensing agreements with American Business Development (ABD), Germany. The agreements will introduce WestPoint Stevens brands including Martex®, Lady Pepperell®, Utica®, Grand Patrician®, Vellux® and others into Middle Eastern retail markets, and provide for its bedding and bath products for those markets to be produced by selected Middle Eastern manufacturers.

"This has been a carefully developed strategy that requires the international expertise of a partner such as American Business Development," said Robert B. Bob Dale, president, Bed and Bath Division, WestPoint Stevens. "ABD has all the skills and appreciation of cultural and geographic characteristics that are essential to global marketing [and] is also acutely conscious of WestPoint Stevens commitment to protecting the integrity of our brands and controlling the quality of our products."
