Turkish men's suit maker Akdas Group is eyeing expansion to the US and China as part of an international growth plan.

The company has set a target of 2010 for its launch onto the US and Chinese markets.

The expansion strategy also involves boosting stores in Turkey to 50 by the end of this year and to 70 by 2007, with an eventual total of 250 stores internationally planned.

The company recently opened a new factory in Istanbul, Turkey, which will be a base for overseas growth.

Akdas owns the Crispino brand, one of the biggest clothing names in Armenia.
