Bangladesh textile firm selects IFS manufacturing solution
Feb '16
IFS, a global enterprise application company, has announced that Bangladesh firm, Hamid Fabrics, has chosen to deploy IFS Applications 9 solution.

The company will see a fully-fledged manufacturing, maintenance, finance, and distribution solution implemented at the company's head office and at two factories in Bangladesh.

Following a comprehensive evaluation of the ERP market, the company selected IFS Applications as its central business solution to increase efficiency and improve planning to offer better service to its customers.

The IFS solution will streamline the company's weaving, dyeing, and finishing processes, which currently operate at a weaving capacity of 10 million yards per annum and a dyeing and finishing capacity of 30 million yards per annum. The solution will also power the company's future expansion into yarn dyeing and thread spinning, according to a press release.

When fully deployed, the IFS solution will support business-critical processes such as finance, distribution, and maintenance. It will also feature the user-friendly, role-based interface IFS Lobby and the IFS Manufacturing Visualiser.

Abdullah Al Mahmud, managing director, Hamid Fabrics said, “Hamid Fabrics has grown to be the largest textile supplier to Bangladesh's apparel industry. We have made strategic investments in cutting-edge machinery and textile manufacturing technologies that have helped us achieve this status within a relatively short time. Investing in a world-class ERP solution such as IFS Applications is the next step in this journey. IFS has the level of sophistication that we require for our vast, diverse, and complex manufacturing operations and we look forward to a speedy and efficient implementation.”

IFS Bangladesh managing director Asanga Marasinghe said, “We are very excited to add Hamid Fabrics to our growing customer list that includes some of Bangladesh's best-known brands. We look forward to building a lasting and mutually beneficial relationship with the group.”

Hamid Fabrics Ltd manufactures solid-dyed fabrics for the 100 per cent export-oriented Ready Made Garment (RMG) industry of Bangladesh.

IFS is a globally recognised leader in developing and delivering business software for Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Enterprise Asset Management (EAM), and Enterprise Service Management (ESM). (GK)
