Tukatech, a leading provider of apparel technology solutions, has promoted Martin Bailey as president of Tukaweb division. Bailey will be responsible for leading the fastest-growing division for consulting, implementation, manufacturing, and other services. He is a 1984 graduate of Campbellsville College with a Bachelor of Science in business administration.

Bailey has a diverse background and solid record of achievements. He began his apparel and textile career at Fruit of the Loom, in 1984. Within seven years the company grew from $500 million to $2.4 billion in sales. Bailey became a key player in supporting the company’s domestic growth and eventual transition into global manufacturing. In his final role as director of manufacturing services, he was responsible for the leadership of global product development, quality assurance, process engineering and capex management for the company. This included 26 facilities in seven countries and over 16,000 employees. Bailey spent nearly fifteen years with Fruit of the Loom, creating the foundation for his ability to affect change and growth for other companies in the future, said a press release by Tukagroup.

In 1998 as the senior vice president, manufacturing for Alstyle Apparel / A&G, Inc, Bailey was responsible for eleven sewing facilities in the US and Mexico. The company produced 450,000 units per day of activewear and fashionwear. Bailey was responsible for production planning, plant layouts, pull demand team layouts, and new product implementation. He oversaw the start-up of three sewing facilities in Tijuana, Mexico.

Bailey joined American Apparel, Inc as the chief operating officer in 2002 when it had $20 million in revenue and he held senior management roles as it grew to over $600 million in revenue and expanded to becoming a global retailer in addition to its legacy apparel manufacturing business. Over time, Bailey was designated as president – manufacturing, but held various additional responsibilities as the company developed.

“I have had more than my share of good fortune of working with and learning from many of the apparel, textile and retail industries’ finest, and working with Ram Sareen and Tukatech is one more opportunity to do just that,” said president of Tukaweb, Bailey.

“My impression of Tukatech for the past two decades has always been that it’s a great company, not only from its outstanding solutions and products, but more for the relentless team behind the product in providing guidance and service to its customers. This is what sets Tukatech apart. I’m proud to have the opportunity to help lead the Tukaweb team and carry on that tradition,” added Bailey.

“I am excited to welcome Marty Bailey to our team. There is so much to learn from someone with such a rich history in the garment industry, and I’m confident he will be an invaluable resource to our team and our users,” said chairman & CEO of Tukagroup, Ram Sareen. (PC)
