About GD Apparel

With our beginnings dating back to the 1960’s, we are proud of our legacy and our family commitment as we embark on the 4th generation of ownership here at Grupo Denim.

Large scale changes took place in 1990 when GD Apparel (Gomez Palacio, Durango Mexico) began its expansion to include exporting garments direct to the US customers. In 2001 we proudly opened our first office in the United States servicing our commitment to product development, diversification of categories of garments we produce, and sales associated with the CMT & Full Package marketplace.

Starting in the mid-2000’s GD worked tirelessly to diversify our product offerings to include fashion denim, workwear bottoms, workwear tops, outerwear, uniforms, and Flame-Resistant apparel.

Production expanded in 2009 as we opened our new Laundry & Finishing plant in Managua, Nicaragua. In 2020 GD began our cutting & sewing offering from Nicaragua. This provides us flexibility in our full-service offerings from 2 countries allowing our customers to choose from different capabilities that best fit your own sourcing objectives.

Our commitment is simple, “we consistently invest in our infrastructure as we strive to improve our design development, sewing capabilities, and our garment wash processing including a family commitment to sustainability…….leaving behind a better planet for future generations”.
