Shishi clothing cos seek advanced machinery to revive

It has been noted that since the beginning of 2008 textile enterprises in China have been struggling to cope with international trade pressures as well as internal issues like RMB appreciation and hike in labour costs.

The production cost of clothing enterprises has continuously gone up, and many SMEs have been forced to close down.

Experts have repeatedly advised garment manufacturers to invest in advanced machinery, which will consume less fuel but raise the output. They said that these equipments will also upgrade quality of products, ensuring better profits.

Fortunately, several clothing businesses in Shishi city, one of the key textile bases in China, have finally accepted the experts' advice.

Reportedly, over 10 big clothing companies in this city imported many complete sets of advanced equipments and production lines. Numerous other firms imported highly developed sewing machinery.

Insiders said that companies in Shishi have realized that it would be impossible to survive by producing low-grade items. They have understood that this investment, though a major one, will pay off not only in short period but also in long run.

Sources said that other enterprises, which have not yet invested in machinery, are also seriously considering the option. Analysts predict that many more companies will plan and import machinery in the near future.
