Saitex (sai-tex.com) has opened its first facility outside Vietnam. Saitex USA, located in the heart of the American denim industry in Los Angeles, features state-of-the-art manufacturing technology with energy and resource-efficient machinery.
Recognized as the “Cleanest Denim Factory in the World,” Saitex has expanded its vision and capabilities globally, to produce locally in the United States. Los Angeles has long been the denim hub in the U.S., but change has been slow to come to the established brands and factories in the region.
During the pandemic, Saitex invested heavily to build the first-of-its-kind facility with the latest innovative laser cutting, semi-automated sewing, robotic spraying, 3D laser detailing, and futuristic one-step wash machines connected to a state-of-the-art water recycling system.
The work resulted in what Saitex calls the “Factory of the Future.” It is an example of the manufacturer’s forward-thinking, meeting decades of denim-making expertise supported by the most dynamic approach to environmentally responsible apparel production.
The manufacturing technology implemented allows for an automated supply chain ecosystem at speed using interconnected ordering and costing with shorter lead times, giving the Los Angeles facility a competitive advantage.
Using its cloud-based digital platform-as-a-service (PaaS) Saitex’s Speed to Market system provides a conscious approach to inventory management and a trajectory towards made-to-order capabilities. Speed to Market offers online garment design, collaboration and manufacturing of custom garments at scale, sustainably and fast.
