HANESBRANDS TO EXPAND HOSIERY PLANT: HanesBrands said it will expand its hosiery plant at Clarksville, Ark., which will add 120 jobs and generate $4.7 million in yearly contribution to the community in the form of wages and benefits.
The apparel manufacturer said the expansion of the factory’s scope to include finishing and packaging will take the place of offshore sourcing of the work. The facility has been in operation since 1988.
The company will invest more than $1.5 million for improvements to the facility. Hanes said it worked with and “appreciates the assistance” of the Arkansas Economic Development Commission and the Johnson County Economic Development Corp.
