Leading garment manufacturer, Tex-giang Joint Stock Company has selected the Coats Digital FastReactPlan to digitally transform its manual planning processes into a unified single view to optimise its production processes by unlocking additional capacity and enhance its customer service by delivering faster order confirmations.
Tex-giang is a specialist protective clothing, outerwear, workwear and sportswear apparel manufacturer established in Vietnam in 2007. The company produces over six million pieces a year and boasts an annual profit of over $61 million. Its customers are mostly based in Europe, the USA and Australia and include Kathmandu, Dickies, Wurth Modyf, DHL, Wilson, Haglofs, First Tactical and Helly Hanse.
Tex-giang secured an SA8000 Social Standards Certification in 2012 for its fair and decent working conditions for employees, partners and suppliers, and recently received a Certificate of Merit for best business from the Vietnam National Textile and Garment Group.
“After the Covid pandemic ended, we began to draw up an ambitious plan to accelerate our digital transformation agenda, specifically across the planning and production chain at Tex-giang,” explains CEO Nguyen Bao Tran. “We needed a specialised software solution that could enable us to effectively digitise our processes so that we could move away from Excel spreadsheets quickly. Coats Digital was the obvious choice as our core digital transformation partner as a result of its unrivalled expertise and industry-leading FastReactPlan solution.”
FastReactPlan is a dynamic, visual production planning and control tool that optimises delivery, efficiency and lead times. Designed and developed specifically for footwear and apparel manufacturing plants, it helps companies integrate capacity, critical path and materials into an integrated planning system.
“FastReactPlan will enable Tex-giang’s planning teams to input key data just once, greatly reducing workloads and human error which will significantly improve the response speed of our planning and production teams,” says business development manager Hung To Hai. “We look forward to a long-term partnership to ensure we can ramp up our digitisation programme.”
