A&E, a global leader in premium quality industrial and consumer sewing thread, embroidery thread and technical textiles, announced this month its strategic alliance with CGS, a provider of business applications, enterprise learning and outsourcing services, to improve productivity, quality and employee motivation within manufacturing operations.
A&E has long been committed to assisting with the challenges global apparel manufacturers face each day and is proud to be a part of a collaborative effort with CGS that addresses these challenges.
The alliance was announced earlier this month at a special networking event in Colombo, Sri Lanka, attended by manufacturing industry leaders, CGS Business Applications and Technology Outsourcing division President Paul Magel, A&E CEO Les Miller, along with many officials and stakeholders of A&E Lanka, a fully owned A&E subsidiary.
Many sewn products manufacturers today are challenged to improve productivity and efficiency in order to reduce throughput time and production costs and at the same time to also improve quality and reduce work in process inventory levels. CGS’s BlueCherry Shop Floor Control provides powerful tools that automate the collection and reporting of production, enabling real-time shop floor visibility and control, improving factory operations and productivity while reducing costs.
