PerformanceScrubs Taps Tech Innovation to Bring Manufacturing Jobs to Alabama

6/10/2014 will launch its new high-tech clothing manufacturing facility in Florence, Ala. The facility brings jobs back to the United States through technical innovations that drive costs down and both speed and quality up.

Encouraged by the global explosion of on-demand manufacturing and mass customization in other industries, the new factory automates and integrates order entry through delivery. Through proprietary workflows, Performance can manufacture millions of unique garments in any quantity on demand while reducing inventory costs and streamlining the supply chain. The factory model has unlimited potential in the types of garments it can manufacture.

"We've spent years planning and designing our comprehensive system that has the potential to revolutionize how clothing is made," said J. Kirby Best, CEO of "The rich history of garment manufacturing in Florence/Muscle Shoals makes this the ideal location to launch a state-of-the-art facility. The overwhelming warm welcome by so many makes it feel like home – we are delighted to be here."

The facility in Florence is expected to begin operation in July 2014.
