Founded in 1981, VT Garment Co. Ltd is an innovative designer and world-class manufacturer of outerwear and sportswear for top global brands including Patagonia, Jack Wolfskin, Montbell, O’Neill and many others from the United States and Europe. VT Garment is a leader in Thailand's textile manufacturing industry and employs over 3,000 people across its two manufacturing facilities in Thailand and Myanmar.
Now, with the introduction of Centric Manufacturing PLM, VT Garment has shortened development lead times, improved accuracy in costing and gained visibility into sampling materials, streamlined communication across departments and reduced time spent on data entry and administration.
“With Centric PLMTM, we’ve reduced lead time by 7% by saving time that used to be spent organizing data. Overall, we have increased productivity by 30% because we freed up resources for action and gained visibility into timelines and activities across the whole organization,” says Mingkwan Lotharukpong, Product Development Division Manager at VT Garment.
