Grupo Kaltex, one of the largest exporters of textiles and apparel in Mexico, with holdings that serve international markets across the US, Canada, Europe, and South America, has selected the fashion PLM software by Lectra, the world leader in integrated technology solutions dedicated to industries using soft materials-fabrics, leather, technical textiles and composite materials, to help them connect design and product development teams at their US subsidiary Revman International and their Mexican manufacturing division Kaltex Home, in an effort to streamline process and promote a more collaborative work environment.

The group has chosen to adopt Lectra Fashion PLM at Revman International, which sources and provides high-end home linens and bathroom textiles to big-name retailers. It will also be implementing the solution at Kaltex Home in Mexico, which designs and produces for Revman International and selected private-label retail brands.

Lectra experts worked closely with Grupo Kaltex to learn about their business model and identify their strengths and challenges, before developing a PLM roadmap adapted to the company's priorities and objectives. The plan, which drew on Lectra's extensive knowledge of industry best practices and change-management expertise, was carefully designed to ensure that the solution's implementation was a success among Grupo Kaltex staff, as well as management, according to a press release.

Hebe Schecter, president of Kaltex North America said, “We chose Lectra because their industry experience and reputation are unmatched. They listened to what we had to say and offered us practical solutions that would let us communicate in real time between different design and development teams, so that we could collaborate more effectively and maintain visibility over a diverse collection of international product lines, across different companies and divisions, on one unified platform.”

Roy Shurling, director of Lectra North America “Grupo Kaltex is a creatively-driven organization, but they also manage a sophisticated manufacturing and engineering operation. They need a partner that understands both sides of their business and can help them speak the same language across their different teams. Our experts come from creative and analytical backgrounds, and love to flex those mental muscles.” (GK)
