Gerber Technology, the world leader in integrated software and automated solutions for the apparel and industrial markets, has granted its software and automation solutions to Bestec Concept, a New York City based company that makes quality uniforms for the US armed forces, as support for the Council of Fashion Designers of America's (CFDA) Fashion Manufacturing Initiative (FMI).

The grant was created in conjunction with the New York City Economic Development Corporation (NYEDC) to nurture and preserve garment production in New York City, connecting fashion designers with local manufacturing.

Bestec Concept was selected by the CFDA to be a recipient of the grant. Bestec boasts 20 years of commercial apparel manufacturing experience, servicing large production runs for both men's and women's apparel. As a result of Gerber Technology's sponsorship, Bestec will be purchasing AccuMark pattern design, marker making, grading and production planning software, as well as a Gerber I-Table and Paragon HX GERBERcutter.

The CFDA's Fashion Manufacturing Initiative is a public-private partnership program designed to support local fashion manufacturing throughout New York City's fashion sector and offers the chance for companies to apply for grants to purchase equipment, make capital and technology upgrades, offer training to their employees, or cover the cost of relocating to New York City.

Mike Elia, president and CEO of Gerber Technology said, “We are committed to supporting and advancing the local fashion industry in New York City and we've been proud to participate in CFDA's Fashion Manufacturing Initiative since its inception. We are delighted to support Bestec Concept.”

Helen Han, president of Bestec Concept said, “Gerber Technology's support will enable us to expand our manufacturing capabilities here in New York. We were able to grow our current production facility to a 35,000 square foot space with the capacity to produce 15,000 units per week. With the right technology, not only can business flourish, but also compete advantageously with foreign manufacturers.” (GK)
