CPAT to produce fabrics & garments in Bangladesh

FAST RETAILING CO LTD and three other partners have reached an agreement to establish a joint venture company, CPAT (SINGAPORE) PRIVATE LTD, with the aim of fabric and garment manufacturing in the People's Republic of Bangladesh. Chinese firms Pacific Textiles Holdings Limited and Crystal International Limited are to join the venture along with Ananta Group of Bangladesh.

While UNIQLO is currently developing its global operation, approximately 90% of all UNIQLO products continue to be manufactured in China. In line with our increasingly global store network, we seek also to globalize our manufacturing structure. To that aim, as our UNIQLO operation grows and expands worldwide, we will be looking to locate approximately one third of total production in countries outside of China.

The manufacturing partners that support production of our high quality UNIQLO products are all extremely capable companies. As UNIQLO operations expand, likewise the expansion of production bases for our partner companies will be a key management issue going forward. We believe that supporting the global development of each partner will ultimately contribute positively to the globalization of FAST RETAILING itself. The agreement for this latest joint venture is a direct result of this strategy.

The new joint venture company CPAT will be expected to conduct manufacturing activities and set up both Fabric manufacturing and garment manufacturing plants in Bangladesh. We also reached a separate agreement today to set up a joint venture between Chinese firm Bros Eastern Company Ltd. and CPAT with the aim of establishing a spinning plant in Bangladesh.
