Where do we go from here? Phase 1 of our new manufacturing facility is complete. Devmir’s long range plan is to create the world’s first 100% renewable sock manufacturing facility with a zero carbon footprint. It’s an ambitious undertaking but it’s a journey worth embarking on. It is the core value of each of Devmir’s three principals, that we should be more than the product we produce. Making socks… you’ve got to make a living somehow, but that’s only part of it. The best part is knwing that we make a difference every single day!

It’s official, the Devmir Dominicana manufacturing facility is now open. With all of the rising fuel cost and rising production cost in China, the Devmir Dominicana plant could not have opened at a better time. Our US clients now have the best of both worlds great quality, competitive pricing, and we are very close to home. It is of no surprise that we are busy cranking out samples for many of you. Thanks for helping us get here. If you’d like to talk to someone about your specific sock manufacturing needs, please call Altug Sipal at our home office in North Carolina. He can be reached at 919-545 5500.
