ROCHESTER, NY / ACCESSWIRE / August 6, 2019 / Jerash Holdings (US), Inc. (Nasdaq:JRSH) (the “Company”), a producer of high quality textile goods for leading global brands, today announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Jerash Garments and Fashions Manufacturing Company Ltd., has entered into an agreement (the “Agreement”) to purchase 12,340 square meters of land located near its facilities in Al Tajamouat Industrial City, Jordan. The Company intends to construct expanded dormitory housing for the Company’s employees on the land.
The aggregate purchase price of the property is approximately $1.2 million. Jerash paid a deposit of approximately $487,000 U.S. dollars at the signing of the Agreement on August 1, 2019. The balance is due upon the transfer of ownership of the property, which is expected to occur within one month of signing.
“We continue to see strong growth in demand for Jerash’s manufacturing capacity with both existing and prospective new customer accounts,” said Sam Choi, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Jerash. “With the addition of our fourth manufacturing facility and the onboarding of our initial workers at that site, we anticipate the need for further expansion of our employee housing facilities. This is in keeping with our commitment to not only hiring a talented multinational workforce, but also providing high quality living space for our employees who relocate to Jordan as part of their contract with Jerash. We look forward to the further ramping of our new manufacturing facility, which we anticipate will add more than 1.5 million pieces per year and employ at least 1,000 employees when fully staffed, increasing our total expected annual capacity to in excess of 8 million pieces per year produced by more than 4,000 world class garment employees.”
