Gerber Technology, the world leader in integrated software and automation solutions for the apparel and industrial markets, and COMESA (the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa), have announced the establishment of a dedicated program for technical assistance and training in Mauritius.

Gerber Technology and COMESA were invited by the Republic of Mauritius and its Mauritius Business Growth Scheme (MBGS) unit to collaborate and introduce a program focused on improving the sustained use of premium software solutions for apparel pattern making. The approach is also intended to promote advances in quality control, collaboration with partners and better efficiency.

A primary goal for the initiative will be the deepening of integration and competitiveness of the COMESA region as well as the Mauritius apparel industry. The initiative is financially supported by the regime of the 10th European Development Fund (EDF), issued by the EU, according to a press release.

MBGS spokesperson Naeem Boodhoo, onsite coordinator and consultant to COMESA and to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, International Trade and Regional Corporation said, “Choosing Gerber Technology for technical assistance for CAD training and the capacity building program is based on the broad presence of Gerber's digital systems and the excellence of services provided to a growing number of apparel manufacturers in Mauritius.”

Automated Garment Technology (A.G.T., Ltd.) founder and shareholder, Clet Baba said, “The project implementation time frame is scheduled for a period of six months, and then Gerber and local representative A.G.T., Ltd. will provide on-site support and dedicated classroom training sessions. Continuous monitoring of progress will be vital for the success of the program. Collaboration with COMESA as well as MBGS will be critical to make this initiative most beneficial to the local industry.”

Guillaume Gairin, Gerber service director for the EMEA region said, “We are delighted to support the technical assistance and customised training program for utilisation of our AccuMark solutions to apparel manufacturers in Mauritius. Beyond our engagement in Mauritius, it is our short- to medium-term goal to intensify support to the apparel and other sewn goods industries in the African region, and thus, the further development of their competitiveness in the world market.” (GK)
