General Sportwear Co., Inc. is a leading manufacturer and importer of private brand denim jeans and woven bottoms. With over ninety years of experience in the apparel industry, we attribute our success to an ongoing commitment to design, quality, and service. General Sportwear Co., Inc. was founded in 1927 by Louis Rosenstock in Ellenville, New York. In 1951, Louis opened the first of eight sewing factories in North Carolina. In the late 80's, General started sourcing finished product all over the western hemisphere to supplement its internal production. In 1993, General opened Fivaro, a modern sewing facility in Honduras. Over the next five years, the sewing was expanded, and a cutting room and laundry were added. In January 2007, General opened Sincotex, a first in class cut and sew facility in Nicaragua. In January 2010, General moved all its cutting and sewing operations from Honduras to Nicaragua and converted Fivaro into a state of the art laundry and dry finishing plant.
General offers one stop shopping to our customers by providing cutting edge designs and category specific sourcing capabilities. While our factories in Central America are ideally located for chase buys and replenishment programs, our network of factories in Southern and Northern China are first in class at fast fashion, embellishments, and specialty fabrics. This diversified, dual hemisphere sourcing network sets General apart from the competition as a leader in both flexibility, pricing, and speed to market. General owns and operates its own distribution center in Zebulon, North Carolina and our headquarters and design team are in the heart of the New York City Garment District.
General Sportwear is still owned and managed by the Rosenstock family, whose commitment to design, quality, and service is just as strong today as it was over ninety years ago.
