Sun Capital Partners acquires textile and apparel companies, turns them around financially and then sells them. As such, it exerts significant influence on the US retail apparel sector and on the US fibre and yarn manufacturing industry. It owns a number of high profile companies - including Alexon, American Golf, Hanna Anderson, Jacques Vert, Kellwood, Performance Fibres, Scotch & Soda, The Limited, True Textiles and Vince - and it has acquired and divested Frontier Spinning Mills and Gerber Childrenswear. Most recently, it sold DBA Apparel - a leading marketer of intimate apparel, hosiery and underwear - to HanesBrands. Looking ahead, executives at Sun Capital Partners believe that strategic partnerships are critical if North American textile companies are to keep their labour costs low and maintain their market share. This report provides an introduction to Sun Capital Partners and a profile of the textile and apparel companies acquired and divested by the company. It also provides profiles of key textile and apparel companies in Sun Capital's portfolio as well as an outlook for the future.
