Clover Industries International is probably the best-kept secret in the intimate apparel industry.
The Hong Kong-based bra specialist has stayed under the radar for the past 55 years, but don’t let that fool you. Clover, which generates estimated annual wholesale sales in excess of $500 million, maintains a work force of 10,000 and produces more than 3.5 million bras a month at company-owned factories in Mainland China, Cambodia and most recently Visakhapatnam, India, where it opened Seeds Intimate Apparel India Private Ltd. in 2010 with three powerful partners: Limited Brands Inc., Brandot International Ltd. and Brandix Lanka Ltd.
