Coats, the world’s leading industrial thread manufacturer, launched its technology division, Coats Digital, for Bangladesh.
The benefit for Coats’ customers will be a one-stop shop approach and an unrivalled suite of best in class, and progressively integrated solutions, which will also adopt the new Coats Digital branding. The series of acquisitions it has made in this space of GSD, FastReact and ThreadSol have been highly successful.
Coats Digital solutions are focused on enhancing the manufacturing value chain from design and development, through costing, to fabric buying, planning and order execution. They allow manufacturers to respond quickly and efficiently to the buyer’s demands.
Coats Digital provides in-depth industry expertise combined with the practical application of the latest technology, including Big Data and AI, delivering market leading software solutions. It will build on the advantages associated with the Coats brand of trust, expertise, credibility and its global footprint.
Speaking about the plans for Bangladesh, Managing Director (Coats Digital), Keith Fenner says, “Bangladesh is a key focus in Coats Digital’s growth strategy. The RMG industry in Bangladesh has seen tremendous growth despite low technology penetration”.
“The industry is now at an exciting stage in terms of technology as more and more manufacturers move from traditional methods to automation.
Coats Digital combines deep industry expertise with the practical application of the latest technology, enabling manufacturers to manage costs and reduce lead time,” he said.
Coats Digital solutions are currently being used in over 50 factories in Bangladesh, including Epyllion, Pacific Jeans, Dekko Designs, Fakir Fashion, and Ananta.
The geographic footprint of Coats Digital covers more than 65 countries. It has global customer relationships with over 5,000 retailers, bands, sourcing business and manufacturers.
