[DOC] Response of Nautica/VF Corporation to report raising concerns about working conditions at supplier factory in Jordan

On behalf of Nautica and VF Corporation I would like to respond...regarding the NLC report on Atateks Foreign Trade facility in Jordan...Back in September 2005 Nautica approached Atateks as a potential supplier. When we contacted the factory to schedule the inspection, Atateks presented us with a valid certification from a recognised factory certification program. Based on this certification we placed a small order of sleepwear at the factory...The inspection of Atateks and interviews of selected factory employees revealed some issues that were consistent with the NLC report...Based on our inspection findings and lack of positive response from the factory we had decided not to place any future orders with Atateks.
