Portland-based Jet Clothing is expanding its in-house production with plans for continued expansion and job creation.

The Hangar, the name appropriately given to the space where Jet’s production assistants handle all parts of the garment making process, has once again progressed. Originating in a small area within the retail store, the Hangar now occupies 2,000 square feet of space right down the street from the Jet boutique.

As a result of the expansion, [president and designer Jennifer] Thomas has already seen growth beyond even what she imagined possible. “We make easily double what we were contracting out before,” she says. “The demand is there and we can meet that with our supply.” The Hangar’s proximity to Jet’s retail space gives Thomas and her team the intimate opportunity to relate to the consumer one-on-one.
