A Dutch clothing brand imports kids and baby wear and wants to outsource production of its own designs to the Asian region, such as India. To keep up with an increasing demand for children’s T shirts, the SME is looking for new suppliers of this type of children’s wear in the frame of a manufacturing agreement.
The Dutch clothing brand designs its own children and kid wear line and now wants to outsource the production of their portfolio in the Asia region, like India. The SME owns and sells one baby, two kids and one pajama brand. All these products are sold under a private label and mainly to supermarkets worldwide. For this reason order quantities for T shirts can vary, for instance 2000 pieces for a customer in Eastern Europe, 800 pieces for one customer in the Middle East and 1500 pieces for a customer in The Netherlands. Total quantity is approximately 3000-5000 pieces per style, but divided over multiple customers. For this the possible partner must meet the specific requirements for packaging, shipping and labelling. Demand is increasing and for this reason the SME is especially looking for manufacturers that work with knitted fabrics, who are able to sew from special fabrics such as jacquards, Sherpa, special mélanges, nappy, quilted, lurex fabrics, velour’s etcetera. The potential partner must be able to supply the described fabrics. The SME does not need suppliers who can make single jersey and French terry.
The following modus operandi will be used:
-Supplier receives technical specification pack, the supplier makes a prototype sample, and supplier gets feedback and comments from the SME.
-After the first stage, the next step will be the so called “Salesman Sample Stage (SMS), for this the SME needs 37 pcs SMS per style.
-As soon as the selling season starts the SME will send the supplier an order.
When the order is placed, the SME needs a pre production in actual bulk fabric for customers approval. Sometimes only one per style, but sometimes 5 per style, depends on how many private label customers bought this style. Per order supplier gets 90 days lead-time, payment is Letter of Credit at Sight or Payment against documents and Shipping will be based on Free on Board.
The contract will be concluded in the frame of a manufacturing agreement.
The Dutch SME is interested a long-term and medium-term cooperation. The production partner shall deliver the requested products, meet the requirement of producing separate quantities for separate customers and separate order moments.
