The company is engaged in weaving and making socks and underwear. Its general manager for Honduras, Jorge Pitsikalis, stressed that this is the first plant they have opened outside the US and that it has hired 230 people.

Laprensahn.com published the manager’s statements: “They decided to settle in Honduras because they believe in the workforce and also because of the proximity to the United States. The conversation was begun by investors in 2007, when there were few US companies in Honduras and they saw the maquiladora zone and Honduran workers."
