HanesBrands inaugurates unique school in the DR
HanesBrands inaugurated the first technical school for the processes of whitening and dyeing textiles in the Dominican Republic. With this training facility, Hanes Brands seeks to certify their factory employees, through external entities that validate the experience and the knowledge acquired by their workers.
The company says that the program is backed by the Catalunya Polytechnical University (UPC) Institute of Textile Innovation (Intertex) and approved by the Dominican Republic’s Technical Professional Training Institute (INFOTEP).
As well as opening the first training center of its kind in the country, the company says that HanesBrands is strengthening the quality and sustainability of its operation in the Dominican Republic.
The students are required to complete 212 hours of workshops and training. The training includes fiber analysis, types of machinery, and analysis of dyeing processes, toxicity and the treatment of wastewater for environmental sustainability.
This new school builds on the technical education programs in place since 2014. A first class will graduate this month.
HanesBrands employs 9,000 people in the four factories they operate in the country. As reported, Hanes Brands accounts for 30% of total textile exports.
