Gerber Technology optimistic about Bangladesh market

Connecticut-based Gerber Technology that supplies software and hardware systems for apparel and technical textiles, sign making and specialty graphics, composites and packaging applications, says it is upbeat about the Bangladesh market.

“Till now, woven and knit garment manufacturers formed our clientele in Bangladesh, but a lot of lingerie manufacturing units have started coming up now, with more and more Sri Lankan expats joining the Bangladesh garment industry; that’s the technological geography that we’re observing,” said Bill Ramsey, Gerber’s Regional Sales & General Manager-South West Asia.

As Bangladesh’s garment sector gears up to reach an export turnover of $50 billion by 2021, manufacturers are strengthening compliance and getting ready for big production and expansions, Ramsey said. A significant number of garment manufacturers are approaching Gerber to get a hang of investment requirements to give shape to their expansion plans and set up new facilities, according to a company press release.

“With the kind of expansion that the company has been observing in Bangladesh, Gerber has stationed about 15 engineering personnel in the country, who have been trained by us and have more than 10 years of experience to meet the clients’ requirements,” Ramsey said.

One of the pioneers in providing innovative technology solutions for the cutting room, Gerber proved its mettle long back when it introduced knife intelligence on the Gerber S91. According to the company, the knife intelligence technology guarantees top and bottom ply of a 72-ply bundle of 14-ounce denim match perfectly due to its ability to control the knife.

In addition to the knife intelligence, Gerber also provides automatic vacuum maintenance in their cutting solutions, thereby providing just the right amount of pressure on the fabric, which is very important as different fabrics with different porosity need various pressures levels to arrest slipping.

Taking care of the smart needs in cutting room solutions apart, Gerber has also set up separate assembly plants in America and China to cater to diverse needs of both these areas. The facility in America caters to manufacturers who supply smaller quantities and accordingly need low-ply cutting solutions whereas the one in China is for the large-quantity suppliers in countries like Bangladesh, India, Vietnam and China, who need high-ply cutting solutions. China was strategically chosen by the company for its facility as the country is almost equidistant to all the Asian apparel manufacturing destinations, helping Gerber to offer faster and cheaper shipping, and shorter lead time.
