'Benefits of Supply Chain Partnerships' by Mainland Headwear & New Era
Apr '09
Mainland Headwear Holdings Limited and New Era Cap Company Inc have jointly organized a two-day symposium in Shenzhen, "Benefits of Supply Chain Partnerships," focused on achieving greater impact and sustainability in supply chain labor compliance through strong partnerships.

The April 23-24 symposium brings together more than 40 participants, including representatives of the Fair Labor Association (FLA) and from the University of Notre Dame and the University of Florida. The FLA, comprised of universities, non-governmental organizations and apparel companies, including New Era, has played a leading role over the past decade in the development and implementation of effective labor standards compliance tools and in overseeing and reporting on how well companies are living up to their commitments.

Mainland Headwear and New Era both view the symposium as an opportunity to highlight the importance of labor standards compliance and, more broadly, to advance responsible business practices. New Era Chief Executive Officer Christopher H. Koch stated: "As a global industry leader and member of the Fair Labor Association since 2002, we recognize the need to develop and maintain a strong dialogue with our supply chain partners and other stakeholders who share our interest in advancing compliance with internationally-recognized labor standards.

The success of this effort rests on true partnerships based on trust, dialogue, and shared goals. To that end, we are especially pleased to work with our partners here in China, Mainland Headwear, to demonstrate our commitment and share ideas on what each of us can do to improve sustainable compliance efforts."

Ms. Pauline Ngan, Deputy Chairman and Managing Director of Mainland Headwear, noted: "Through our partnership with New Era, we continue to build a stronger compliance program and a better understanding of the positive impact it has on our business. We are pleased to help carry the message of how this can help make us a stronger, more competitive company and enhance our reputation as a leading supplier of world-class products.

We appreciate this opportunity to host others who are so committed to strengthening compliance here in China and around the world, and look forward to two days of productive meetings and dialogue. In particular, we are pleased to welcome officials from the Fair Labor Association and two of its best-known university affiliates for this timely exchange of information and perspectives."
