Grupo M will not Close Factory in Haiti
Santo Domingo – This Thursday Grupo M denied that it plans to close the doors
and lay off 700 of the Haitian employees at its factory that produces Levi’s
pants in a Haitian free trade zone.
A press release signed by Grupo M’s administrative director, Limbert Cruz,
suggested that this information is completely false and out of place, and added
that at no point in time did Fernando Capellan have contact with the newspaper
Diario Libre or any other media outlet regarding the matter.
Grupo M invited the newspaper to visit the factory in Ouanaminthe, where the
free trade zone operates, so that it can check out the installations, which
have the capacity to directly employee 2,000 workers.
According to Grupo M’s press release, “the projects planned for Codevi has
the opportunity to create 10,000 new jobs, with the installation in the short
term of new industrial production units."
