Xinlang Sinoer Purchases Eton UPSs
Xinlang Sinoer Dress Co. Ltd., one of China's largest apparel companies, has added three more
automated unit production systems (UPSs) from Sweden-based Eton Systems AB to its men's suits
production facility China. Eton systems now represent roughly 60 percent of Xinlang Sinoer's plant
"We have continued to invest in Eton Systems because they help us build sustainable competitive advantages," said Tony Chen, general manager, foreign trade department, Xinlang Sinoer. "Even with our globally competitive labor rates, we know that other regions such as India are competing on price for the same programs. And as consumer demand for higher quality grows, we continue to automate our processes to ensure that we can consistently deliver quality products in order to grow our domestic market share."
The UPS features an overhead conveyor that automates product transportation during production, eliminating nonproductive operator handling. In addition, the system collects shop-floor data and minimizes workspace requirements, according to Eton. Xinlang Sinoer supplies annually more than 13 million apparel units including men's shirts, jackets and trousers; women's dresses; fashion garments; sweaters; and T-shirts.
