One Distribution, the manufacturer of Supra branded footwear, has opened a new facility in Dongguan, China to oversee every aspect of its sourcing and development.

The 3,000 square foot office, known as One Distribution Resources (ODR), is staffed by a dedicated team working directly with factories - and is headed by Supra vice president of footwear, Udi Shiloah.

The move will help ensure "the highest possible quality and efficiency," Shiloah explains, adding: "In addition, we have aligned ourselves with the world's leading suppliers who apply best practices to their operations while complying with today's standards.

"ODR will supply the necessary tools and technological capabilities to our leading design team so that we may continue to drive the most exciting and innovative products to market."

The new facility will enable Supra to better control sourcing and its supply chain - with the end result of higher quality products at a better value.

In addition, ODR is staffed with a scheduling and logistics division that will ensure products get to its offices and distributors around the world in the most efficient and timely manner possible.

"Our goal is to build great product and we will accomplish this by forging direct and solid relationships with the best vendors and factories in Asia," notes One Distribution CEO, Scott Bailey.
