Jun 5, 2017
South Africa's leading retail investor in clothing and textile production TFG has invested R75 million in the renovation and expansion of Prestige Clothing factory in Caledon.
The extension is a boost for the textile and clothing manufacturing industry in South Africa and it has also opened business opportunities. TFG had acquired Prestige in 2012.
"TFG's Prestige Clothing is the leader in quick response manufacturing, and this latest investment in our manufacturing capacity means that we’ll be able to respond even faster, and in greater volumes, to our customers’ needs," Graham Choice, head of design, TFG Manufacturing and Prestige Clothing, told South African media.
The new establishment includes development of a new building and renovation of the existing factory. "This latest investment is not only good for business, as it enables TFG to boost our speed-to-market response and capacity, but also for continued job creation specifically in a rural area and the economy as a whole," said Choice.
"TFG already produces 6 million garments annually, and our investment strategy has enabled us to ensure future scalability and growth," he added. At present, the company is focusing on improving its manufacturing capacity, skills and machinery to compete at the national and international level.
