Source it! specially for contract manufacturers
Aug '10
Manufacturing facilities and business-promotion schemes from all over the world are invited to register for Source-it!, the sourcing platform at Texprocess. Detlef Braun, Member of the Board of Management of Messe Frankfurt, explains, “Thanks to Source-it!, contract manufacturers benefit twice over from Texprocess.

As exhibitors in the Source-it! area, they can present their services to decision makers from international fashion brands who will attend Texprocess at all events. As visitors, the fair gives them an outstanding opportunity to find out about the latest machines for their factories”. Texprocess, Leading International Trade Fair for Processing Textile and Flexible Materials, will be held parallel to Techtextil in Frankfurt am Main from 24 to 27 May 2011.

Taking part in Source-it! gives contract manufacturers the opportunity to present their facilities or regions and show how their company is equipped and the services offered. This also includes logistics, infrastructure and certificates that substantiate the company's standards of quality and commitment to sustainability. Continuing, Braun says, “We attach great importance to the quality of the new sourcing platform and, therefore, expect exhibitors to comply with the relevant international production standards.”

Source-it! is aimed at contract manufacturers from all over the world no matter whether they work in accordance with specifications supplied by garment manufacturers, offer their own prêt-à-porter or licence products or have supplementary supply-chain services in their portfolio.

The new platform is also aimed at business-promotion schemes, which present their country or region and its significance for textile processing. As Elgar Straub, General Manager of VDMA Garment and Leather Technology, explains, “Texprocess offer the ideal setting for a sourcing platform because both international garment labels and production facilities will be there to find out about the latest machines and equipment. Source-it! is a really international forum where contract manufacturers from all over the world – from Asia via East Europe and the Maghreb to Latin and South America – can show what they are capable of.”

Around 500 companies will present the latest machines, plant, processes and services for the garment and textile processing industry on 50,000 square metres of exhibition space at Texprocess from 24 to 27 May 2011. The conceptual partner of Texprocess is VDMA Garment and Leather Technology. Around 25,000 trade visitors are expected to attend.

The leading international trade fair is aimed at an audience from the fields of garment manufacturing, textile processing, technical-textile processing, the trade, handicrafts, services and science and training. Companies that process technical textiles come from the automobile, aerospace, upholstery, mattress, packaging and occupational safety sectors.
