Daidoh Limited Co Ltd, one of Japan's leading wool spinners and apparel manufacturers, is to open a new 2,000 sq m mill in Maanshan Economic Development Zone in China's Anhui Province this September, Woolmark reported last week. The new mill will produce men's and womenswear for Daidoh's "New Yorker" brand. The company also plans to shift production of its New Yorker menswear brand to its Shanghai JV mill from Autumn 2001. Daidoh says more than 80 per cent of "New Yorker" men's suits will be produced in China after the move.
