How does the Vietnam facility represent Apparel Solutions' capabilities in manufacturing?
Vietnam is now Apparel Solutions’ largest facility outside of China and home to a complete range of solutions to our customers. The purpose of this is to enable speed and local servicing for our customers who constantly demand a faster turnaround time.
How is Apparel Solutions better serving customers both local to Vietnam and globally?
Vietnam plays an important role in driving scale and speed.
The industry is defined by speed, and people want the ability to service locally. Our new plant enables this with a large local presence, wide range of products and a team that can recommend the best solutions to our customers.
The plant is an important part of unlocking the potential of surrounding markets like Thailand and Cambodia.
Finally, it is at the forefront of new technologies, like component weaving, which we believe will open new opportunities for Apparel Solutions.
As we partner with brands and factories, what role has Vietnam played in these relationships and delivery?
Brand Customers: make the decision on where they source from; and decide how much of their business we will receive.
Factory Customers: place the purchase order and outline specific needs to execute their business.
Speed, flexibility, price and service are essential to each of these customers, and the our factory in Vietnam solves these issues for the customers here with our large capacity and variety of products on offer.,
We take our learnings from China as well as our other manufacturing facilities, and drive them into the execution team here.
As a result, our customers can expect a globally consistent product, quickly, when they need it and with simple transaction. This allows them to take advantage of market access privileges without compromising anything.
