The Group manufactures most of our elastic fabric, elastic webbing and lace at its own manufacturing facilities. The Group also outsources a small portion of the manufacturing of its products to contract manufacturers.
The Group currently has eight production facilities, all of which are located in Dongguan City, Guangdong Province, with total gross floor area of approximately 218,449.6 square metres. As of 31 December 2016, the Group's designed capacity for producing elastic fabric, elastic webbing and lace stood at approximately 84.6 million meters, 1,190.6 million meters and 22.8 million meters respectively.
To increase the efficiency of the production process, the Group implemented a lean manufacturing production practice and management philosophy centred on raising production efficiency, improving product quality and eliminating waste. Since 2009, the Group has adopted this practice throughout its production process.
Looking ahead, the Group will continue to upgrade and expand the production machinery and facilities to enhance production efficiency, reduce consumption costs and increase production capacity. We will strive to further increase our market share and capture business opportunities arising from the growth in the global lingerie materials market.
