Li & Fung to setup dedicated vendor support services unit
06
Jan '14
After a solid finish to 2013 which is in line with our previous announcements of operating financial performance returning to 2011 levels, Li & Fung Limited (“the Company” or “Li & Fung”) is currently focusing on finalizing the next Three-Year Plan (“3YP”) (2014 – 2106) to be announced in March 2014. 
 
As one of the new initiatives in the next 3YP, the Company is establishing a dedicated Vendor Support Services business unit to enhance factory and worker safety, raise standards and improve operational efficiencies in its global supply chain. 
 
The Vendor Support Services business, including vendor compliance, will be led by Group Chairman Dr. William Fung Kwok Lun, and this new initiative will be expanded as an integral part of Li & Fung’s new 3YP. 
 
The new unit will incorporate the Company’s existing range of vendor support services to factories plus new offerings that include product testing, provision of logistics support to factories, and other practical input to enable factories to move up the value chain. Presently, the Company’s vendor support services include safety and compliance training and audits, trade credit services as well as the handling of letters of credit, product liability insurance, fabric, trims and accessories procurement, product development and technical and operations support. 
 
The Company will continue to ensure that the provision of such vendor support services conforms with the agreements on provision of services to the Company’s customers. 
 
While revenue generated from Vendor Support Services is a small part of the Company’s total revenue, the Company views this new initiative as a key ingredient of its enhanced business offering in its new 3YP.
