Grupo M has taken full advantage of the trade allowances afforded apparel companies manufacturing in Haiti. And, to its benefit and that of its manufacturing associates, it hasn’t stopped there.
The Dominican Republic-based vertical manufacturer bought land directly across the border in Haiti — literally walking distance from its headquarters — on the island of Hispaniola and began producing there in 2003, two years before the end of the quota system that sent much of the production previously situated in the Caribbean Basin to Asia.
