Tom James Company to Buy Former Hickey Freeman Plant

There's a buyer for the factory in Rochester that used to make Hickey Freeman apparel.

The Tom James Company is buying the Rochester Tailored Clothing plant.

Senator Schumer says the company will keep the roughly 200 union employees and add up to 45 jobs over the next five years.

The company plans to keep the downtown Rochester retail factory store open, as well.

The Rochester factory was put up for sale earlier this year, and another company recently acquired the Hickey Freeman brand and moved production to Mexico.

Tom James is 100 percent employee-owned and is the largest custom clothing manufacturer in the world -- with 3,000 workers.
