Textile Industry working on reinventing itself

The textile industry is continuing facing the illegal textile trading and now the companies need to think and work very hard to develop new ideas not just to fight the sale of the illegal garments at a lower price but also to be more competitive. The industry cannot wait for the government to solve the problem so actions must be taken against this scenario.

Since the problem cannot be solved immediately, the only way right now to work against it, is to develop new markets, following the most highest levels of quality control, buying and selling is no longer enough for the textile entrepreneur and now is the time to look for new tendencies of design and production that are already running all around the world; if not, the apparel industry will be left behind; however, the view seems to be promising and the government is already informing that the illegal trading is decreasing, feeling confident that the programs they are running are giving the expected results.

Industrial entrepreneurs foresee the apparel business in Mexico to grow in the following years, for Salomón Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim, it is mandatory to offer quality products, this is how the company has been present in the market through all these years without been affected by illegal trading of the local business.

“I think that we need to build a partnership between designers, vendors and entrepreneurs in order to create and consolidate biggest fashion collections, we need to keep on doing the apparel trade shows to make stronger relationships for the Mexican market, showing machinery, chemicals, new fabrics, new manufacturing processes, runways, business and exportation plans, investment and also conferences about new trending, we need to keep on innovating”, said Salomón Juan Marcos Villarreal.

Textiles have existed almost since humanity did and as well as human beings evolved, textiles did it too, not only in the way of wearing textiles but also in the way of producing them.

There are many companies depending of the textile industry, such as fashion, furniture or carpets manufacturers.

There is also a sector that had to open to cover the demands of the textile industry, such as sewing machines manufacturers or software vendors in charge of adapting their programs for this industry.

We can easily notice how the textile companies have grown up along the years as the fabrics will always be needed and many companies depend on their products, such as companies dedicated to produce needles, zippers, buttons, clothing accessories, among many others.

Mexico, the best manufacturer option for the United States

Grupo Denim, as well as other manufacturer companies in Mexico keep on being the best option to manufacture and export garments to the United States for different reasons that we will explain further on this note.

Different enterprises in USA were inquired about who they thought could be the best option to work with and more than half of them thinks that Mexico is the country with more possibilities to develop their workforce as partners, mainly for the closeness to each other, which means a significant saving in transportation and labor costs, as well as the efficiency to get their products delivered on time and the security that has improved considerably in Mexico.

“We, at Grupo Denim, work closely with great enterprises in the United States, and they look as optimistic as we do to keep on working together and growing our business for this 2016”, says Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of this company.

Comarca Lagunera, in Mexico has a considerable quantity of maquiladoras, near the United States, which has made them very attractive for USA companies to hire them to manufacture their garments; this activity is actually an important source of jobs and economy impulse in this north part of the country.

The relationship between Mexico and the United States’ Government s have also played an important part to impulse the work between both countries, allowing companies of both sides to start working or increase the production they had in the past years, plus the Free Trade Agreement that has been a key to make importations easier.

“We are glad to see that companies at USA are looking at Mexico as a good option to make businesses agreements and work together, in Grupo Denim, we work hard every day to gain new contracts that will allow us to increase our production and of course offer more employment to Mexican families”, added Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal.

ABC Inventory Control System

The ACB Inventory Control System shows u show to handle inventory in an organized way by classifying priorities, this can be done in three different ways; according to the unit cost, the total cost of existence and the needs without taking into account the cost.

You can find different techniques that will improve the working methods, especially on the production area, and one of them is the ABC analysis, also known as an effort answer, answer analysis or the structure of two facts.

“This ABC technique is used specially on the stock management, product analysis, sales review, and customer’s analysis, among many other”, confirmed Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal, president of Grupo Denim.

The philosophy of this ABC Inventory Control System indicates that some times it is more expensive to control the inventory than the real cost of the product that is being controlled, for this reason, this technique suggests to classify goods by its importance, on the following way:

A: For those products that require better control for its purchase cost, and the cost of having such product in inventory, by its direct input to the utilities of an enterprise, and by the importance of these goods for a job. It generally is focusses to a small number of elements requested by exact quantities and based on demands of the customers.

B: Those goods that are not so needed as the A products, for the cost, utility and control needed over them. The request of these goods is usually calculated with the optimal amount that a company needs to have in stock.

C: Those articles for which an enterprise needs little investment and has little importance to make the final product, for these type of products, you need a simple audit over the existences. You usually have a considerable amount in your warehouse, without have extra leftover or less than what it is actually needed.

“The ABC Inventory Control System pretends to reduce the costs for handling inventory. It can also provide and inventory rotation, to increase sales frequently and decrease the amount of work done that will mean savings in a company”, added Salomon Juan Marcos Villarreal.
