Coats, the world’s leading industrial thread manufacturer, has acquired ThreadSol, a cloud-based digital applications provider, becoming a part of Coats Global Services. The acquisition of ThreadSol follows the announcement by Coats of its strategic investment in Twine, a technology start-up which has developed a revolutionary digital thread dyeing system.

"This is a great next step," Manasij Ganguli, co-founder, ThreadSol told Fibre2Fashion, commenting on the development. "We are very excited to become part of the Coats family which is a major step in the growth and development of our business. We will be able to leverage Coats’ unrivalled global footprint and strong corporate brand and have the opportunity to collaborate with and gain additional levels of expertise and insight from a global industry leader."

ThreadSol’s technology focuses on fabric usage optimisation in apparel manufacturing and helps customers reduce fabric waste and cost, and establish accurate product costing. It uses proprietary algorithms built on artificial neural networks to optimise the purchasing and consumption of fabric by real-time data analytics through IoT devices. This reduces costs and waste through cut-plan process and fabric roll utilisation which helps solve one of the most pressing and complex problems in the apparel supply chain.

ThreadSol’s products provide an excellent fit with Coats existing Fast React Systems and GSD range of Evolve, Vision, Align, Enterprise and Quest. This complementary suite of software solutions for the apparel and footwear industries will enable brands, retailers and manufacturers to drive productivity gains, supply chain control and speed to market.

"ThreadSol is an exciting acquisition that supports a key aspect of our growth strategy: to build an innovative software solutions business for the apparel and footwear industries. We will be able to draw upon our demonstrable track record of successfully integrating bolt-on companies following the acquisitions of Patrick Yarn Mill, Gotex and Fast React Systems, all of which are performing well under our ownership," Rajiv Sharma, group chief executive, Coats, said.

Headquartered in Singapore, ThreadSol was founded in Delhi in 2013. It has development centres across India as well as representative offices in Bangladesh, China, Indonesia, Sri Lanka and Vietnam. ThreadSol has over 100 employees, services some 130 businesses in 13 countries and plans more than 1.5 billion garments every year through its platform. In 2018, its sales will be circa $2.3 million. The acquisition is for a cash consideration of up to $12 million. (RR)
