Providing Products from Diverse Product Categories
and Total Solutions of Clothing for Women, Men, and Children
The Apparel Division handles a wide range of products from womenswear to men’s casual, baby and children’s clothing, loungewear, and miscellaneous accessories. The Division has implemented a system for responding to customer and market necessities by assigning specialized sections for each category in the diverse collection of fashion categories and also providing total solutions and products to meet specific scenarios. We have been highly praised by our customers for our special organizational capabilities and human resources capable of responding in a sensitive manner to changes in customer requirements and markets. These enable us to provide information on trends and top-selling items, propose planning, and then manufacture products based on these capabilities.
Our sales style consists of combining the planning solutions capabilities of the designers of this Division with the MD capabilities of the sales personnel to perform proposal-based sales to customers, while product design and manufacturing is handled by our pattern makers and manufacturing technology personnel. Overseas operations are performed by use of a company internal trading network based on a global supply chain that links Takisada Group companies, with TAKISADA-NAGOYA at the center and including TAKISADA(SHANGHAI), TAKISADA(HONG KONG), and TAKISADA-NAGOYA(SHANGHAI), with our suppliers and production bases. This is a key to being able to maintain a stable supply. We are pursuing differentiation by combining our apparel solution, trading company, and production functions.
In order to continue to provide attractive products, we plan to further strengthen the solution capabilities of our designers and MD capabilities of the sales personnel to provide products brimming with freshness and having excellent value achieved through this collaboration of the two roles.
The Menswear mostly handles menswear dress items. This Division provides planning solutions as well as integrated development, production, and sales of original items based on the abundant amount of information collected at biannual menswear trade exhibitions and other sources.
The most important of these operations for us are our capabilities to propose solutions and maintain a stable supply. Our capabilities to propose solutions are due to the unrestricted framework of our global materials, accessories, and production sites, and free use of a wide variety of information from within Japan and abroad, such as that from periodic business trips to Europe, in order to provide our customers with value-laden products. Maintenance of a stable supply means that we can produce and deliver products with stable quality, reliable turnaround periods, and competitiveness.
Additionally, we can produce short-cycle small-lot products by assuming the material and capital risks ourselves. The production departments of this Division create paper patterns, introduce technology to factories, perform quality control, and possess all the requisite functions for rapidly starting production. In accordance with the requirements of customers from TAKISADA(CAMBODIA) and TAKISADA(HONG KONG), we have created a system capable of direct delivery not only from within Japan but also from overseas production bases, resulting in a high degree of satisfaction among our customers for this ability to respond according to the product sales channels.
We will continue to place great importance on independence and autonomy by continuing to cultivate human resources capable of independent thought and action, and also strive to grow our operations by expanding sales not only in Japan but also through sales channels from TAKISADA(CAMBODIA) and TAKISADA(HONG KONG) to other sales channels across the globe.
