Gokaldas Exports is India’s largest apparel manufacturer and exporter producing sports, casual and formal apparels. Customers include leading the US and European brands such as GAP, Nike, Levis, Adidas, Abercrombie & Fitch, H&M, Debenhams and Zara.
With aggressive growth plans for servicing both global buyers and the Indian retail sector, Gokaldas Exports have selected Fast React Systems (now Coats Digital) to assist them to develop and implement best practices in production planning and control.
Dinesh J. Hinduja, Executive Director Marketing and Production, explained, “Gokaldas Exports selected Fast React (now Coats Digital) as it wanted a world-class planning system tailored to the specific requirements of the apparel industry and with a proven track record of successful implementation and use over many years.”
“FastReactPlan will ensure that we adopt a disciplined and systematic approach to production planning which is a complex activity in the apparel industry, particularly so for Gokaldas Exports, which has 30 factories and processes over 400 styles a month to produce 3 million garments.”
“In a tough market, productivity in manufacturing and on-time deliveries are both critical parameters sought by customers. We expect FastReactPlan will help us improve our performance on both these dimensions.”Gautam Chakravarti, CEO
Andrew Brown, CEO of Fast React Systems (now Coats Digital), added, “We are delighted to be working with Gokaldas Exports on this exciting project. FastReactPlan complements existing systems by extracting order information to a highly flexible and graphical production plan, thereby enabling the business to make more effective planning decisions, improve production efficiency and maximise on time deliveries. Through a focused project approach, together with the GE team, we aim to provide a return on investment in less than 12 months.”
