To fight corruption, we need to open our eyes, be watchful, report and expose.
Trybus Group is expanding its supply chain footprint with a new factory in Ethiopia, adding to incoming investments in the textile and apparel production there.
The Texas-based menswear company, which produces brands like Q by Flynt and Steve Harvey, signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Ethiopian Investment Commission to set up a manufacturing center in the Kombolch Industrial Zone. The MoU was signed by Fisum Arega, commissioner of the Ethiopian Investment Commission, and Lixun Wang, Trybus Group VP and director general.
Located in the Amhara regional state, Kombolcha industrial park was introduced to the public on Jul. 12. Since opening, the $90 million facility has attracted apparel companies from Italy, South Korea and the U.S for its close proximity to Port Djibouti. The hub’s 75 hectares of land has 13 industrial sheds and is anticipated to create more than 15,000 jobs in the area.
