An international denim fabrics manufacturer began construction of a facility in south Texas, the first denim production facility in the United States. The 212,725 square foot project is the first phase of a three phase company vision to bring manufacturing of its denim product to the U.S. The new facility would create 305 direct jobs and the subsequent three phases are expected to produce an additional 503 direct jobs.
A gap in financing caused the construction project to be delayed indefinitely. The manufacturer approached Baker Tilly Capital for assistance in securing the necessary funding to move forward with construction.
