AKIPRESS.COM - Deputy Prime Minister Zamirbek Askarov, Chui region governor Tuigunaly Abdraimov, and U.S. Ambassador Donald Lu visited a new apparel factory in Chui region on April 19, U.S. Embassy said.

The new factory creates 350 new jobs for supporting its production expansion and for meeting international quality standards. This was made possible through a partnership agreement between Cool Bro’s LLC and the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

As part of this partnership, Cool Bros LLC reconstructed an old industrial building and USAID provided modern production equipment. This includes 155 different machines such as high-speed industrial sewing, hemming, and stitching instruments. The equipment enables the factory to complete large orders that meet export quality standards. USAID’s contribution is worth around $3 million.

The new factory is allowing Cool Bros to nearly double its productivity. It is also attracting new clients, including prominent European retailers.
