The new production order mainly consists of cargo pants and Chino trousers and will provide a portion of Levi Strauss (HK)'s supply to the Asian market.

"This is not only a new addition to our strong client base, but also an important strategic partner for us as we continue to pursue the higher-margin casualwear market. We believe our increased production capacity from our New-Tailun subsidiary and commitment to quality control will attract more world-class clients globally and provide opportunities to develop long-term relationships with them."

Ever-Glory continues its aggressive business expansion by increasing orders from existing clients and successfully forming partnerships with new clients in order to achieve its plan for sustainable, long-term growth.
