US-based fabric company Standard Textile is looking for Chinese associates to help it expand into China.

The company has already finished construction of its plant in Linyi, Shandong Province - the first 'vertically integrated' American textile plant that makes finished items. The factory is presently producing exports only, but Standard hopes that partnering with Chinese companies will allow it to sell to clients in China.

Standard Textile currently operates 21 factories in 12 countries and produces healthcare, hospitality, and institutional textiles, apparel and other products.
