Coats Digital expands, opening a new office in Vietnam

Coats Digital is the world leader in supply chain planning tools for fashion brands and manufactures helping factories better manage capacity, pre-production and material supply to optimise productivity and manage the complexity and shorter lead times demand by brands and retailers.

Back in 2007, Hong Kong’s Crystal Group and Korea’s Youngone became the first ever users of Fast React (now Coats Digital) in the country but today we now have more than 24 of Vietnam’s leading manufacturers using FastReactPlan (previously known as Evolve) to plan wide range knit and woven factories production the full range of products from sports and outdoor wear, through to underwear and denim. These include Sing Lun/Star Fashion, Esquel and more recently Phong Phu International (PPJ) and Viet Vuong.
