ASEPRI launches multi-company garment project in Valencia
Jul '13
The Spanish Association of Products for Children (ASEPRI) has launched its first major garment project in the Municipality of Ontinyent in Valencia, Spain. 
Ontinyent Mayor Jorge Rodriguez and the president of ASEPRI Vincente Mompo signed the agreement for the establishment of District BB which would be a pioneering initiative in the field of manufacturing children’s apparel.
The Municipality of Ontinyent was chosen for the signing of agreement due to its strong textile tradition, according to an ASEPRI statement.
The multi-company project BB District is founded with a goal of re-establishing companies in Spain which produce products for children as well as to encourage innovation and professional training in these companies.
Currently, seven companies have confirmed their participation in the project which in its first phase will be dedicated to the making of Children’s clothing.
 The initiative is expected to be operational in September 2013 and would have a preliminary staff of 40 employees. 
Vincente Mompo said the first phase would concentrate on the  production plant which is dedicated to the cutting, sewing and embroidery in children’s clothing, whereas the second phase would focus on honing know-how through training programs in specific pattern making, designing, and all other auxiliary work that goes into making of kidswear.
Mr. Mompo said the facilities offered from the onset by the Ontinyent administration and the clear commitments of its mayor, Jorge Rodriguez are the causes that have attracted a project of this stature to the region.
Earlier this month, ASEPRI announced at the 77th edition of Fair of Children and Youth Fashion (FIMI) the setting up of a textile factory in Valencia to help domestic brands grow their reliance on domestically produced inputs. 
ASEPRI and Valencia Institute of Biomechanics (IBV) also chose FIMI as a platform to present the results of the European Project ‘Design4Children’, launched in late 2010. The project was intended to enhance the competitiveness of European SMEs in childcare product sector and saw development of three innovative design tools for promotion of clothing with enhanced lifespan and offering better comfort to children.
