EXCLUSIVE: Tanzania Tooku Garments
By Chen Ran | Web Exclusive

Established in July 2012 by J.D. United Manufacturing Corp., a global supplier of garments and home textiles headquartered in Changzhou, east China's Jiangsu Province, the Tanzania Tooku Garment Company is located inside the Benjamin William Mkapa Special Economic Zone in Dar es Salaam. With an investment of $16 million, it covers 33,000 square meters, which includes sewing, laundry and packing zones.

Levi's, TCP, and Primark are among its clients and the annual export volume hits 3 million pieces. The zero import duty on select African products under the U.S. Government's African Growth and Opportunity Act ensures Tanzania Tooku's products easy access to the American market.

The company has some 1,800 local staff, 60 percent of whom are women. It has an ambitious business plan--opening three to four factories every year across Tanzania in the coming five years in a bid to move its production base from China to Tanzania.
