Merger Support – Textile Industry

MD&E provided engineering expertise to Ennis Corp. to support their merger with AlStyle Apparel, a multi-national sportswear manufacturer. MD&E performed an inspection of the AlStyle manufacturing and distribution operations in Anaheim, California to assess compliance with applicable federal, state and local environmental and occupational health and safety regulations. Processes examined included fabric knitting, set making, dyeing, finishing, cutting and sewing operations distributed over 500,000 ft2 of manufacturing floor space. Warehousing and distribution facilities occupying over 400,000 ft2 were also examined. Water use in dyeing operations consumes over 1,500 gpm. Wastewater treatment and selective catalytic reduction of boiler emissions are on-going at the main fabrication facility.
