Juki Corporation and Pegasus Sewing Machine Mfg have entered into a basic business alliance agreement to focus on the industrial sewing machine business. Under the collaboration, the two companies will work on enhancing the skills of sewing operators and improving their working environment. The two will work to develop market in the emerging economies.

As a comprehensive manufacturer of industrial sewing machines, Juki has been providing sewing machines and related equipment and systems as line solutions to customers in the apparel and non-apparel sewing industries in more than 185 countries.

Pegasus has been a leading company specialised in chain stitch sewing machines over the 100 years since its establishment. Knitwear-related customers with expanding businesses continue to use Pegasus products.

Capturing the progress of digital and IoT innovations, the arrival of the New Normal Society adapted to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the movements of economic recovery, the two companies will work together to support development of the sewing industry as one of the drivers that will lead the recovery. The two companies will also collaborate to develop solution activities geared to the achievement of the SDGs, with a view to solving social issues mainly in emerging countries.

Under the collaboration, the two companies will work on enhancing the skills of sewing operators and improving their working environment, creating a production management system that enables a fine-tuned response to demand fluctuations, and building an infrastructure for resource- and energy-saving throughout the sewing factories.

The two will collaborate in market development in emerging countries by establishing a sales and service network in the markets in emerging countries by using and mutually complementing the management resources of the two companies, and jointly expanding products for emerging markets.

Collaboration in product development will involve a joint focus on the digitalisation and networking of chain stitch swing machines, and participation in future large-scale exhibitions for their products. The two will also collaborate in the planning and development of chain stitch sewing machines.
