(Santa Ana, California) – Today, Walmart leaders joined Classic Fashion executives and elected officials at a ribbon-cutting ceremony for Classic Fashion’s first U.S.-based production facility. For the next five years, the new Santa Ana, California site will cut and sew apparel exclusively for Walmart, reinforcing the commitment of both companies to “Made In USA.” With this facility, Classic Fashion will create 125 new jobs by 2023, supporting the existing workforce, and an additional 225 by 2027 totaling 350 new American jobs over five years.

Classic Fashion entered phase one if it’s strategy to support U.S. manufacturing by establishing the production facility The Cut & Sew Co., Inc. in Santa Ana, Calif. The second phase requires the company to identify countries close to the U.S. to source materials for the facility, and phase three, is to grow vertically to source materials directly from the U.S.

“Classic Fashion is proud to be a supplier to Walmart as we build our manufacturing presence in the United States,” said Sanal Kumar, Chairman and Managing Director of Classic Fashion. “I’m proud to highlight our incredible U.S.-based manufacturing staff and the local community here in Santa Ana as we continue to build on Classic Fashion’s 20-year history of success.”

Walmart’s collaboration with Classic Fashion is the latest example of the company’s long-standing commitment to support American manufacturing that dates back to the company’s founder, Sam Walton. Nearly two-thirds of Walmart’s annual product spend is on products that are made, grown or assembled in the U.S., and in 2021 the company announced a new $350 billion investment to reinforce that goal. In addition to partnering with companies like Classic Fashion to expand its U.S. manufacturing presence, Walmart also supports American entrepreneurs through its annual Open Call event.

“Walmart is proud to work with Classic Fashion, which will soon be manufacturing its excellent products here in the U.S.,” said Jason Fremstad, senior vice president, Supplier Development & Sourcing at Walmart. “Investing in local manufacturing creates American jobs, helps small businesses expand and benefits communities like Santa Ana. We’re excited to feature Classic Fashion’s American-manufactured apparel exclusively in our stores.”

  1. Sounds like a good idea BUT what are the working conditions going to be? What will the pay scale be? Is this going to be the American version of a sweatshop? Will the employees be treated with respect? Will they have normal hours with adequate breaks and without ridiculous quotas to meet in their 8 hour work day?
    Hopefully it won’t be a sweatshop like there are in other countries. That would be horrible!

  2. At Classic Garments, we prioritize customer satisfaction by providing exceptional service and ensuring that our garments clothing are crafted with precision and attention to detail. Our team of skilled artisans and designers work diligently to create pieces that reflect the latest trends while maintaining a classic aesthetic.
