WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- On Thursday, HanesBrands announced plans to acquire Maidenform, bringing jobs to Forsyth County.
The company said they will complete the acquisition by the end of 2014. It will merge Maidenform's New Jersey corporate operations into Hanes' headquarters in Winston-Salem and Hanes' offices in New York City.
The move is expected to add more than 130 positions between the Hanes' Winston-Salem headquarters and the offices in Manhattan.
HanesBrands says it is phasing out the Maidenform Distribution Center in Fayetteville starting in 2014. The center has about 280 employees.
