With increasing numbers of customers looking for new sourcing destinations, Eclat Textile, the Taiwan-based vertically integrated knitting mill says it is now benefitting from the 2016 closure of its Chinese operation. Reporting a 16 per cent increase in revenue to $738 mn for the first 10 months of 2018, Roger Lo, Vice President of Eclat said that the ongoing trade dispute between Washington and Beijing could be a boon for its business with knitted fabrics already listed under the package of tariffs that the US imposed on $200 bn-worth of Chinese imports in late September.
