WS & Co. Announces Moving Date for Factory Expansion

Leading North American apparel manufacturer moves to new home this month!

WS & Co., parent company of Redwood Classics Apparel, has announced the official date for its upcoming factory move. On December 20th, 2013, the factory will relocate to its new headquarters, a space nearly double its current size.

“Having endured in an often-volatile North American industry, we are thrilled and humbled by this move,” said Chak Cheng, Founder & CEO, WS & Co. “Our thanks and appreciation go out to our craftspeople as well as the designers, wholesalers and retail brands who have remained faithful to the North American textile trade.”

As a result of the move, office and factory operations will cease operation on December 20th, 2013 and will resume immediately in the New Year on January 2nd, 2014.

As such, in-house dye and special-wash services will be disrupted. Please contact your respective Merchandiser to make arrangements for upcoming sampling or bulk production needs. WS & Co. asks for your patience should any minor disruptions arise as we settle into our new home.

Please make a note of WS & Co.’s new address effective Dec. 20th, 2013:

138 Nugget Ave.
Scarborough, ON
M1S 3A7

All other forms of communication (phone, fax, email) will remain status quo.

WS & Co. would like to take this as an opportunity to thank all stakeholders for their patience throughout this expansion process. “Being one of the few full-serviced garment manufacturers still producing on North American soil, we are faced with fierce competition in the way of lower prices on off-shore produced products,” added Chak. “We are so grateful to all those who continue to contribute to building our country’s economy by buying local and creating jobs. It’s not just about the product, it’s about the people.”
