Welcome to MAS ACME, home to agile concept-to-delivery solutions for fashion-forward apparel manufacturing.

Headquartered in Asheboro, North Carolina, MAS ACME spearheads MAS Holdings’ thrust into the Western Hemisphere to provide the fastest and the most flexible speed to market solutions to our customers, from design, prototyping, manufacturing and delivery to the ultimate consumer.

In 2017, MAS ACME was founded on the acquisition of the business of Acme-McCrary Corporation, a company founded in 1908 as a women’s hosiery manufacturer. MAS ACME is the first venture by MAS Holdings in the Americas operating through:

  • The Cetwick - Product Development Hub
  • Asheboro Plant – Onshore Manufacturing Facility
  • MAS ACME Honduras – Near-shore Manufacturing Facility
  • MAS AKANSYEL - Manufacturing Facility
  • Siler City - Digital Branding and Distribution Center

At MAS ACME, we continue to adopt new strategies and technological advancements focused on increasing production flexibility and shortening production windows, empowering our in-control customers to consolidate their market relevance and agility.

ADVANTAGE

With the establishment of the MAS ACME business in the USA, we offer a multi-pronged advantage in apparel solutions to customers who operate in the Western Hemisphere.

Counting onshore and near shore solutions, we create synergies for customers with their end-consumers, by adding value across the production process from design and prototyping to manufacturing and delivery.

This in turn reflects in MAS ACME’s enablement of identifying and fast adapting to trends and shifts in the local consumer market, ensuring the manufacture of highest quality apparel with the covetous ‘Made in USA’ label, at hyper speeds-to-market.

This is complemented by our own distribution center which is a classified Foreign Trade Zone (FTZ) on US soil, geared towards distribution and value-added services for any product.
