Sri Lankan sports apparel maker ties up with Fastreact
Aug '07
MAS Active, part of the Sri Lankan based MAS Holdings, has chosen Fastreact to provide its production planning and control functions, including both capacity and critical path management, working with and interfaced to its SAP business system.

MAS Holdings specialises in design-to-delivery solutions in intimates and sports apparel for the world's leading brands. The largest in the region, MAS operates 28 world class manufacturing facilities, two design studios and a sourcing and innovation arm across seven countries. Backed by a strong raw material supply base the group employs over 41,000 people.

MAS Active is the fastest growing sports and active fashion wear manufacturer in the region servicing top brands Nike, GAP, adidas, Victoria's Secret and numerous other global market brands. With a manufacturing base of some 12 facilities, 10 in Sri Lanka, and 2 in India, the MAS Active division employs over 14,000 people and manufactures around 25 Million garments per annum within its Sri Lankan facilities alone.

The Challenges
Mr. Shirendra Lawrence, Managing Director explains “As demand for much greater product complexity and dramatically shorter lead-times increases, we realised that our existing, excessively manual methods would simply not cope with these new conditions. Given the complex nature of our products, we had to find a 'World Best' solution, whichwould work with and integrate to SAP and which could cope with multi-level planning, also multi-stage and multi-component processing, including our extensive printing and embellishment requirements. In addition, the solution needed to cope with either centralised or decentralised processes, also planning 'live' across multiple locations, yet remain easy to use, responsive and flexible: That's a tall order!”
