Ethiopia - A New Dawn

Ethiopia - A New Dawn

ITL Intelligent Label Solutions recently announced the opening of their latest garment label factory in Hawassa, Ethiopia. The site is the latest in a series of new wholly owned factories being set up by the ITL Group as a key component of its long term growth strategy.
Ethiopia is seen as one of the most exciting prospects for the set-up of garment manufacturing and sourcing as it has duty free access into both the nearby European and US apparel retail markets, abundant affordable labour, electricity and a proactive government demonstrating real commitment and action in setting up a number of world class industrial parks for the garment industry. The country has consistently achieved around a double digit GDP growth rate, low inflation, a relatively stable currency and is politically stable with growing foreign investment and infrastructure development
ITL Ethiopia is located in the prime Hawassa Industrial Park which is a green field park with 300,000sqm of factory space with its own waste management and recycling plant to ensure close to zero impact on the environment. The park is the major employer in an area with a potential workforce of over 5 million people, its own customs clearing facility as well as other facilities such as accommodation and banking.
The factory will manufacture both screen and rotary printed fabric labels, heat transfers, stickers, RFID labels and digitally prints paper tickets and will finish woven labels from stock in order to provide a full product range with maximised local production.
Apparel retailers such as PVH, H&M, Decathlon and VF Corp have taken the lead in sourcing a growing volume of garments from Ethiopia. Talking at the launch, Chris Currie- ITL’s Executive Director for Emerging Markets commented “ITL is the first global apparel label manufacturer to set up a factory in Ethiopia and we see it as a strategic opportunity to support a number of key apparel retailers in their quest for shorter lead times and lower costs in response to the consumer demands for more dynamic exciting fashion at competitive prices.”

ITL is a global supplier of intelligent label solutions supporting many of the world’s best known brands, retailers and manufacturers. We offer a comprehensive range of products and solutions aimed at enhancing your brand identity and integrity.
