NANJING, China, May 1 /Xinhua-PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Ever-Glory International Group, Inc.

("Walls") on April 20, 2007.

During a visit to Ever-Glory's new headquarters and state-of-the-art Fabric Inspection and Testing Center, Mr. Jeff Cordes, Chief Operating Officer for Walls Industries, and his visiting team were greatly impressed by Ever-Glory's testing center, which gave them even more confidence in the Company's product quality.

The new production order marks the third year of the two companies' strategic partnership. Walls is a market-leading designer, manufacturer and marketer of branded workwear, hunting and outdoor apparel.

"We strive to maintain strong relationships with our major clients," said Mr. Yihua Kang, President, Chief Executive and Director of Ever-Glory.

Our growing production capacity and cost-effective operation have attracted an increasing number of respected brand names that want to develop long-term business relationships with us."

Ever-Glory has been aggressively looking for new opportunities while maintaining close relationships with its major clients. To enhance its presence internationally, the Company plans to build up overseas direct sales channels throughout this year.
