TAIPEI -- Major Taiwanese apparel maker Eclat Textile plans to increase its production capacity in Vietnam, which is expected to benefit from the Trans-Pacific Partnership free trade pact.
The company, which supplies clients like Nike and Adidas under outsourcing contracts, will invest $50.5 million to upgrade two factories. The expanded capacity will top 5 million pieces of clothing per month.
Taiwanese media reports say $40 million will go to a factory in Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province and $10.5 million to a plant in Dong Nai Province. Construction will start in early 2016.
