BIELEFELD, Germany — April 29, 2019 — The Seidensticker Group consistently follows through on its verticalisation strategy: In March this year, the shirt producer opened another company-owned production plant in Haiphong in Vietnam.
It was in 2007, also in Vietnam, that the starting signal was given with the launch of the first own production plant in Chi Linh near Hanoi. At present, the Seidensticker Group manufactures at two extensively built production plants occupying a total area of 22,500 square meters in Vietnam.
This production plant is the third company-owned production facility: In 2014, another production plant was opened in Semerang, Indonesia.
“With these new manufacturing premises, we are responding to the constantly increasing demand for sustainably produced goods. From an entrepreneurial point of view, the main focus for us is on social responsibility”, explains Gerd Oliver Seidensticker, managing partner of the Seidensticker Group.
Whereas the production plant that opened in 2007 generally produces shirts and blouses for the Seidensticker brand, at this new plant, goods for the private label section will mainly be manufactured.
“The private label section is growing further, and constitutes, along with our own brand Seidensticker, an important pillar of the group of companies. The group will be concentrating on its core sections, thus establishing a future-orientated setting. In this context, the opening of the new production plant is an essential and necessary step”, highlighted Seidensticker.
“With their respective production plants, both the Seidensticker brand as well as the private label business have the most modern production possibilites available — and with the highest of technical standards. Both core sections have been given sufficient space and are now in a position to sustainably satisfy the highest quality-related demands”, adds his cousin and also managing partner of the Seidensticker Group, Frank Seidensticker.
In Vietnam, some 1,500 employees are presently working on the manufacturing of products for the Seidensticker Group — along with approximately 350 members of staff in Indonesia.
