Shima Seiki Turns 60

Japan-based Shima Seiki Mfg. Ltd. is celebrating its 60th anniversary. To mark the milestone, the company will host a three-month-long open-house event at its headquarters in Wakayama, Japan, that will feature a virtual fashion show, machine and sample exhibits, and a presentation of the latest DX design technology; as well as a special website that offers seminars and event content for those not able to attend the open-house in person. The theme for the event is “Open Up The Future.”

Shima reports it is sending a strong message on this anniversary “in an effort to accelerate the widespread use of virtual samples to reduce waste throughout the supply chain to ensure a sustainable future for the fashion industry and for the planet as a whole.”
