Hello again casey46-ga,
California requires that anyone ?engaged in the business of garment
manufacturing must register with the Labor Commissioner. The
California Division of Labor Standards Enforcement maintains a
database of these registered Garment Manufacturers and Contractors and
makes it available for downloading in either Excel or tab-delimited
text format. This registry currently has over 5000 names listed. Each
listing includes the name and address of the company and its status as
a manufacturer or contractor. Since these are all California companies
they are domestic manufacturers by definition.
I?ve also included a few additional resources regarding the California
garment industry to help you continue your investigations. I trust
that the registry information will meet your needs.
All the best.
