Shima Seiki opens new subsidiary in Vietnam

Nov '16
Shima Seiki, Japanese flat knitting machine manufacturer, has opened a wholly owned subsidiary in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, in November 2016, to strengthen its sales, service and demonstration capacity for its product line. The establishment of a subsidiary linked directly with Shima Seiki headquarters should provide peace of mind for customers in Vietnam.

With its economically advantageous wages and plentiful workforce combined with investments from Hong Kong, Taiwan and Korea in light of the Free Trade Agreement with the European Union going into effect in 2018, Vietnam is seeing a flourish in its textile industry with growing demand for Shima Seiki computerised knitting machines and computerised cutting machines.

For its open house event, Shima Seiki will host a private show in its premises, on November 25 and 26, 2016. The company will display SVR122, one of the industry's benchmark for computerised flat knitting machines that features such Shima Seiki innovations as digital stitch control (DSCS) and spring-type moveable sinker system; the compact and economical SSR112 computerised flat knitting machine; P-CAM182 multi-ply computerised cutting machine suited to the automotive industry, and the SDS-ONE APEX3 3D design system capable of realistic simulation that allows for virtual sampling, minimising the need for costly, time and resource-consuming sample-making.

Additional exhibits at the private show include Shima Seiki's new web-based fashion archive service “staf,” Shima KnitPLM knit product lifecycle management software, as well as knitwear produced on the latest line of computerised knitting machines, including revolutionary seam-free WHOLEGARMENT knitwear that features superior fit, comfort, and draping characteristics.
