Textiles producer Springs Creative expands China operations
Jun '09
Representatives from Springs Creative Products Group, LLC (SCPG) announced they have expanded their China operation by establishing Springs Creative Shanghai Trading Company (SCSTC) as a Foreign Invested Commercial Enterprise (FICE) under China law.

Located at 188 Jiangning Road in Shanghai, China, the office expands SCPG's existing worldwide sourcing and supply capabilities in China and other countries such as Korea, India, Pakistan, Taiwan and Thailand. Providing a global vertical supply chain for all SCPG customers, the office features a team of professionals with more than 150 years of combined experience in the textile industry.

Nancy Han, who has more than 15 years of experience in the textile and apparel industry, serves as director of merchandising for SCSTC. John Heustess, director of sourcing and China operations, brings more than 35 years of experience in textiles and sourcing to the operation. Thirty-year textile veteran Blake Bell, who remains in China after five years with Springs Global, will serve as president of Asia Sourcing in the Shanghai office. In addition, there is a staff of 14 associates that handle sourcing, merchandise, quality control, product development and CAD design along with other business components.

“Positioning ourselves in China remains a very strategic move as the country is the world's number one emerging market,” said Derick Close, CEO and owner of Springs Creative Products Group, LLC. “This move will allow us to better serve our customers through a global vertical supply chain. We have an excellent team of employees that are proficient in the global textile industry and possess years of valuable expertise. We look forward to this office working in conjunction with our U.S. operations to offer further expansions in the future.”

The Springs Creative Shanghai Trading Company recently partnered with the University of North Carolina Chapel Hill's Global Business Project (GBP). Through the program, students from four different universities evaluated the SCSTC business plan and worked with the staff to establish new processes.

“Working with Springs Creative Shanghai Trading Company has been an amazing experience for us all,” said Anu Kannegundla, George Washington University student and GBP participant. “We have learned a great deal about the textile industry and business relations as it pertains to the United States and foreign markets. Everyone at SCPG has been extremely hospitable and we greatly appreciate the opportunity to work with the SCPG team.”
