We began the interview by asking him, as to how could solutions from Lectra make itself the 'need of time' in current milieu, to which he said, “It is a challenging time for the Indian apparel manufacturers and exporters to be competitive in the market as buyers are demanding quality garments at the least possible price and integrating and optimizing the product development & manufacturing processes through automation is the only solution”.

Next we asked him to as to how he foresees the potential for business in the Indian apparel sector, to which he said, "Fabric is the biggest single cost factor in apparel manufacturing process. By optimizing the fabric utilization, the company will gain in reducing the cost of the garment. By investing in Lectra products, apparel manufacturer will benefit by considerable optimization in fabric consumption”.
