Gildan has re-opened two sewing facilities in Nicaragua to respond to increased demand in mask production
In April, Gildan announced that the Company had partially re-opened some of its textile and sewing factories in Honduras to produce non-medical face masks and isolation gowns in support of the global fight against the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Company adapted its operations to manufacture the new products and mobilized a team of experts to develop and implement stringent processes to protect employees who had chosen to come back to work on this effort. But since then, the demand for masks has continued to grow.
