T.CON's Asian Expansion

Company News, Commercial & Manufacturing Facilities, APAC, Technology

T.CON has acquired Hong Kong-based Pacific Textiles - one of the world’s largest textile manufacturers. as an implementation partner for its TRIM Suite of SAP solutions.

 

Pacific Textiles, a leading manufacturer of customized knitted fabric and  longstanding SAP customer, employs over 6,500 people. Its SAP team operates under direction from CIO Hubert Tsang within a newly established subsidiary which is positioning itself as an implementation partner for other businesses in the region. The collaboration with T.CON provides the company access to comprehensive industry expertise – for example, for implementation projects in the paper industry. At the same time, the SAP subsidiary of Pacific Textiles is adding T.CON products like the TRIM SUITE to its portfolio.

 

During a joint presentation at the Fastmarkets RISI Asian Conference in Shanghai, Hubert Tsang and T.CON’s International Business Development Manager Bradley Robb introduced the partnership to the circle of Asian participants. In front of a professional audience representing some of the most influential paper producers in Asia and the world, they explained the background and potentials of the collaboration. Together, in a packed room, they demonstrated how T.CON's full-scale optimisation tool TRIM SUITE can generate and optimize slitting patterns for the pulp and paper industry. This enables them to support customers worldwide with innovative, SAP native solutions - custom tailored to the mill industry.

 

Gerhard Göbel, Senior Consultant SCM at T.CON, said:

"SAP is used for many scenarios in China. However, not all implementation partners in Asia are able to supply the industry expertise that is often needed for the projects.

 

"Our implementation partner knows the market and opens doors for us. We make our software products and internationally-unique industry expertise available to them."

 

The partnership is a milestone for T.CON’s internationalisation strategy which centres on partners who are thoroughly familiar with regional markets.
