VT Garment moves up the value chain as world-class fair-trade designer, manufacturer

Sportswear and outerwear designer and manufacturer VT Garment takes pride in something bigger than its award-winning quality and craftsmanship. It is one of the biggest factories worldwide with the Fair Trade certification and Fair Labor Association membership – advocating better wages and working conditions, local sustainability, environmental protection and overall fair trade.

“The garment industry was always viewed as a labour-intensive, low-tech industry,” says Chalumpon Lotharukpong, VT Group managing director and second-generation scion of the family-owned business. “We want to change this notion as we pave the way for effective integration of the four Ms of production: man, material, method and machine.”

“Garments sales in Asia are forecast to overtake those in Western countries this year for the first time in history. This signifies a revolutionary trend that we’ll continue to watch closely, especially amid developments in Asean Free Trade Area and integration,” Chalumpon says. “Seeing promising growth in Thailand and more so in Myanmar, we aspire to move up the value chain as a world-class designer and manufacturer, work with like-minded partners and have our own fair-trade brand one day.”

VT Garment has been leading the way in innovative textile manufacturing processes in Thailand for a long time. Being an IT-driven industry champion, in 2013 VT Garment embarked on the journey to implement a company-wide ERP-solution, namely Infor Cloudsuite Industrial. Along further efforts toward Industry 4.0-driven digitalisation of the complex textile production shop floor, it became apparent that additional shop floor control including machine connectivity is required. To this end, we partnered with MPDV, a world renowned German Manufacturing Execution System (MES).

Since 2017, our production supervisors have been able to monitor machine productivity in real time. This has allowed them to react to problems on the fly thereby enhancing overall equipment effectiveness (OEE).
