Building the business for long-term growth, but also ensuring that the company has a strong local supply chain in place to deliver on its goals, are among the challenges faced by Andrew Lo, CEO of Hong Kong based Crystal Group, as he continues to build the capacity and competitiveness of one of Asia's largest garment manufacturers.
Garment supplier Echo Sourcing has been building its business in Bangladesh since 2005 and is confident of continued growth in a country that has been rocked by a number of safety issues. The company, however, is keen to broaden its horizons and is eyeing potential new markets such as Ethiopia. Mark Bannister, head of sustainability and projects, talks to just-style.
Hong Kong based manufacturing giant Crystal Group has stepped up its efforts to disclose greenhouse gas emissions by becoming one of just two unlisted companies taking part in a climate change questionnaire.
The most-read stories on just-style last week included the possible sale of Adidas's Reebok brand, figures that suggest UK textile sector wages and productivity are the lowest of all the country's manufacturing industries, and reports that structural issues may have been to blame for the collapse of a Cambodian garment factory.
An initial risk inspection on a Cambodia clothing factory which collapsed earlier this week injuring eight people suggests structural issues may have been to blame.
More work is needed to reform Bangladesh's apparel industry if the country's exports are to grow, a report has found.
At least eight workers at a clothing factory in Cambodia's Takeo province have been injured after the floor collapsed yesterday (21 October).
Action plans are being developed in several African countries to push for living wages, with unions across the region agreeing to work towards this goal.
Experts on China's textile and apparel industry say that international brands must take increasing care to ensure their sourcing is environmentally and socially responsible, ahead of an anticipated tightening of government restrictions.
If evidence is needed as to the new direction likely to be pursued by US retail giant Gap Inc, look no further than the company's new leadership change. It was revealed last week that CEO Glenn Murphy is to step down in February, making way for Art Peck, the head of Gap's digital division.
