'Source it' at Texprocess offers new production channels
Sep '14
In the backdrop of apparel brands looking for new processing channels to outsource production fully or partially, Texprocess offers a concept - ‘Source it’, which offers insights into new channels and technologies.

Messe Frankfurt, organisers of Texprocess say international demand for production capacity is growing and at the same time, rising production costs in China and India are bringing about a reconsideration of priorities.

“Transparency in the textile supply chain, optimum technical integration and corporate social responsibility are replacing price as the most important production criterion.

“Against this background, the ‘Source it’ area will offer detailed insights into new channels and technologies during Texprocess which begins May 4 to 7, 2015”, Messe Frankfurt informs.

‘Source it’ offers both production companies and fashion enterprises supplementary benefits. The former can take new orders and find out about the latest technologies at Texprocess, e.g. new solutions for sewing, joining, embroidering and cutting.

While, fashion labels can find not only innovative production machines but also interesting companies for outward processing. ‘Source it’ is also aimed at export-promotion companies, national associations or institutions of the textile and garment industry.

“At present, great interest in Texprocess is being shown by companies from South and East Europe, Central Asia and Africa. In 2013, over 50 companies and associations from 16 nations took part, inter alia, from Bolivia, Kenya, Lithuania, Peru, Romania, Tunisia and Vietnam”, Messe says.

Given the demand for environmentally friendly and socially fair production in the garment sector, ‘Source it’ will also focus on social standards and textile labels in 2015.

At Texprocess 2013, no less than 95 percent of trade visitors said they were satisfied to very satisfied with the spectrum to be seen at the ‘Source it’ area.

Jürgen Brecht from Marc Cain says, “The ‘Source it’ concept was very good. I was able to make new contacts with companies from Bulgaria and Hungary.”

Madiagne Diop, CEO of NOIX-shirting suarl from Senegal informs, “For us, ‘Source it’ was a great success. We mainly produce shirts and blouses and were able to make good contacts with firms from West Europe and even Argentina.”

Olaf Schmidt, VP - Textiles & Textile Technologies at Messe Frankfurt, says, “‘Source it’ area is distinguished by its highly technological orientation, so is of interest to Texprocess visitors, most of which come to see machinery”. (AR)
