Devanlay Establishes Subsidiary In El Salvador

France-based Devanlay — global licensee and part owner of the Lacoste apparel brand — recently set up manufacturing operations in El Salvador. The company attributed the country’s excellent business environment, easy access to the United States, support provided by the government and productivity of its workers as contributing factors to the decision.

Devanlay, which also has operations in China and Peru, will establish Trans America Textil El Salvador S.A. de C.V. in the Miramar Free Zone, and will work with local subcontractors. The Argus Group will provide cut-and-sew processing, while Industrias Duraflex will manufacture and dye cotton fabrics.

El Salvador and Devanlay representatives celebrate Devanlays decision to establish a subsidiary in El Salvador.

Trans America first will produce men’s polo shirts and expects to export nearly 200,000 units to the United States in 2005. The company hopes to expand with the production of striped polo shirts for men, ladies’ polo shirts and dresses, and children’s sportswear, among other items.
