Tefron, an Israel-based manufacturer of seamless activewear and intimate apparel, has signed an MoU with the City of Montreal to move its North American Headquarters from New York City to Montreal, Canada. According to the company, the expansion of the Montreal office and its designation as North American Headquarters will allow the team to continue to grow beyond the ten-fold expansion it has undergone since 2012. Tefron depends on its Montreal-based management team to steer the business to enhanced growth and profitability.
The current team of 30 at Tefron’s Montreal office manages the company’s sales, customer service, design, production, sourcing, IT, invoicing, administration, business analysis, logistics, and accounting functions. Additional roles will soon be added in R&D, HR, and global marketing.
Denis Coderre, Montreal, Mayor commented, “After many difficult years in the textile and fashion industry, Montreal is returning as a major player, notably thanks to the efforts of ‘mmode’, a fashion cluster organisation. The fact that Tefron is shifting its head office to Montreal sends a strong signal of the city’s importance in the clothing industry.”
Tefron offers innovations like seamless sewing, 3D sewing, and wearable technology as white label product to some of the world’s largest and most well-known brands including Victoria’s Secret, Under Armour, Adidas, Pink, and Walmart. Tefron’s Montreal Headquarters will be the main point of contact for managing the entirety of its North American operations.
