In a press release issued by Hanes, chairman and chief executive officer, Richard A. Noll said, “Maidenform has great brands that consumers trust. Combining the complementary strengths of both companies creates a lot of growth opportunities.”

According to the release, the acquisition is expected to create growth and cost savings opportunities and increased scale to serve retailers.

Since both brands sell similar products, the acquisition will combine both portfolios and allow for the introduction of new products, according to the release.
