Keny López wrote in LaPrensagrafica.com: "'This new Hanesbrands project called 'El Salvador Socks' entails the creation of 500 jobs which would double within a period of 12 months when the plant is operating at full capacity,' said Ron Gburek, vice president of weaving for Hanesbrands Inc. 'Production in El Salvador will go to retail stores across the United States. The plan is not to supply the Central American market, but we would eventually earmark a portion of production to this market' explained Gburek.”
