By just-style.com | 9 May 2000
Full Line Distributors, Inc. (Amex: FLD), a national distributor and manufacturer of imprintable and decorable sportswear, today announced that it will relocate the sewing operations of its L.A. T Sportswear Division which are currently being performed at its plant in Ball Ground, Georgia, to its facility in Roberta, Georgia or sourced to offshore contractors."We are taking this action because the available supply of sewing operators in the Ball Ground area has decreased significantly over the past several years, and the operating efficiencies of the Company can benefit from the consolidation of sewing activities in Roberta and an expansion in product sourcing from other countries," stated Isador Mitzner, Chief Executive Officer of Full Line Distributors, Inc. "This is consistent with our strategic positioning as a low-cost producer and distributor within the decorable sportswear industry.""The Ball Ground facility will continue to serve as a warehousing and distribution center and for the inspection and quality control of products sourced outside of the United States," continued Mitzner. "We expect the Company to realize a net cost savings from the relocation of its Ball Ground sewing activities."Full Line Distributors, Inc. distributes basic T-shirts and sweatshirts, golf shirts, baseball and golf caps, athletic jerseys, jackets, shorts, bags and aprons. Some of the nationally known brands distributed by the Company include Fruit of the Loom®, Hanes®, Jerzees® and Jonathan Corey®. The Company also manufactures sportswear under the brand names L.A. T Sportswear®, L.A. T For Kids®, Rabbit Skins® and Woodbridge.
