Currently, there are a number of top garment manufacturing companies in Turkmenistan. Some of these include Ruhabat Textile, Simco Group, and Thai Son S.P Co., Ltd. These companies all produce high-quality garments that are not only made in Turkmenistan but also exported worldwide. However, the COVID-19 crisis and the rise of the price of natural gas has caused problems for the companies and the country as a whole.
1 A&F Co.
Founded in 1892, the Abercrombie & Fitch Company (A&F) is one of the world’s leading specialty retailers. It sells a wide range of men’s, women’s, and children’s apparel and accessories. It also operates several e-commerce websites. A&F partners with over 12,000 stores in the United States and around the world.
The company’s merchandise is sold through mail-order, in retail stores, and in catalogs. A&F sells a diverse range of items, from sportswear to hunting gear. Its inventory includes clothing, sporting goods, golf clubs, tennis rackets, and fitness equipment. A&F also has a line of accessories for teens and adults.
The chain was acquired by Oshman’s Sporting Goods in 1978. During that time, Oshman’s refocused the company as a mail-order retailer and started to sell novelty and hunting merchandise. The company was later purchased by The Limited Inc. During that time, the company introduced a more casual look to its clothing. Its products were targeted at post-college male buyers in the late 20s and early 30s.
The company’s merchandise was marketed with sexually charged imagery. Some parents were concerned about the company’s advertising. In response, Jeffries began to take action. He hired executives and designers who understood the tastes of young Americans. He also made changes to the company’s promotion policies and hiring practices. He eliminated sexually charged imagery from the company’s merchandise. He also pledged to reduce the number of ads containing pornographic content.
The company’s image took a hit when it settled a lawsuit over racial discrimination. During this time, the company’s stock fell to $10 per share. A&F had been operating with a solid sales record, but its sales began to drop mid-year.
2 Thai Son S.P Co., Ltd
Located in the Quang Nam province of Vietnam, Thai Son SP is a family owned and operated sewing factory which produces low volume garments for both men and women. The company has 15 sewing lines, a small but impressive inventory, and an excellent sourcing team. They offer many services to help their customers.
The company also has a well-stocked showroom in Saigon, where customers can view samples and get a feel for the company’s capabilities. They are also well positioned to ship their products to the port of Ho Chi Minh City, or directly to their customers’ doorsteps.
The company has also made waves in the health and beauty industry. They are currently producing about 80 tonnes of hand sanitiser a day, and are working to produce hand creams for the National Health Service’s Nightingale Field Hospitals. They have also converted some of their manufacturing facilities in Indonesia and Thailand to produce the goods.
They are also on the cutting edge of manufacturing the medical devices and products that will make healthcare professionals around the world more comfortable. They are not alone in this endeavor. For example, they have a solid line of protective headwear for healthcare professionals.
It’s no secret that the health and safety industry is currently a hotbed of innovation, with many manufacturers using new materials and techniques to improve their production efficiency. The company’s latest innovations complement their existing product range, while making some of their most challenging products easier to manufacture. They have also taken the time to implement a two-step quality control process.
Aside from the new innovations they’ve rolled out, they are also taking advantage of new trade agreements with China, Korea, and the EU.
3 Ruhabat Textile
Among the leading companies of the Turkmen garment manufacturing industry are Turkmenbashi denim complex and Ruhabat Textile Complex. These enterprises produce a variety of high quality fabrics and yarns. These products are exported to countries such as the United States, Canada, Russia, and Sweden.
The Turkmen garment manufacturing industry is developing rapidly. The government has introduced a comprehensive program of development of the sector to ensure a high level of production and a reduction in imports. This should benefit the national economy.
The textile industry plays an important role in Turkmenistan’s economic diversification strategy. The industry is well-equipped with modern technology and production facilities. Its export potential has grown thanks to foreign direct investments.
The new industrial facility will enable production of 3.5 million finished garments. It will also be able to process 20 million square metres of dyed fabrics. These textiles will be made from fine-stapled cotton. These products will be produced using machines from Shima Seiki, a Japanese manufacturer. These equipments are affordable and will allow the textile industry to produce trendy apparel.
The enterprises of the Ministry of Textile Industry, the State Committee for Sports and other relevant organizations are involved in the design and manufacture of clothing. The smart uniforms for the Turkmen national team were designed by domestic designers. These garments combine traditional ornaments with contemporary designs. These are made from high-quality, high-tech fabrics.
The Yenis garment factory is a leading producer of shirts in Turkmenistan. It produces shirts for both men and women. It is equipped with the latest machinery from leading manufacturers. These clothes are produced to the highest standards and have received glowing reviews from customers.
4 Simco Group
Among the plethora of garment manufacturing companies in the former Soviet republic, the Simco Group is a trusted supplier of apparel to the wholesalers and retailers of the world. The company boasts of a small but mighty 600-strong workforce. In an ordinary year, the company ships about $12 million to $15 million worth of apparel.
The company’s name in lights has been the subject of several controversies, including the aforementioned incident, as well as a slew of workplace accidents. Its bumbling attempts to play safe haven’t won it many friends in the industry.
The aforementioned bumbling attempts at efficiency may be in vain, as the Simco Group has been named on Wal-Mart’s “red” list of unauthorized suppliers. In addition, the company has been barred from entering Wal-Mart’s online marketplace, which is the source of much of its business. The company claims that it is unfairly penalized for the aforementioned lapse. It has added an email address to its website, where factory owners can lodge complaints. The company is weighing its options, but is still in the running to become the world’s first ever textile manufacturer to win a retail contract.
The Simco Group has been able to show off a few awe-inspiring feats, including winning a major contract to produce yarns from recycled materials. The company has even joined hands with the Thai Acrylic Fibre (TAF) of the Aditya Birla Group. However, the most notable feat is that the company has been able to produce a t-shirt that is made from 100% recycled cotton. This is a major accomplishment, as the country has been notorious for being the world’s leading importer of discarded textiles.
5 COVID-19 crisis
Despite the fact that Turkmenistan is not the only country in the world to have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, the government continues to deflect responsibility and deny the existence of the disease. This lack of accountability is jeopardizing the health of the population. The continued denial of the crisis is exacerbated by the lack of information about its cause.
The Government of Turkmenistan has failed to address the ongoing economic and social crisis. This has led to severe shortages of food and cash, and deepened social tension. The government also failed to provide access to subsidized food for economically vulnerable groups.
The government has also denied the right of Turkmen physicians and nurses to practice their professions, and threatened them with criminal prosecution. The country’s ailing healthcare system has also been weakened. Many doctors and nurses are also not provided with personal protective equipment, which can lead to their deaths.
A Prague-based independent group, Rights and Freedoms of Turkmen Citizens, released a report detailing cases of health workers not wearing PPE. The report noted that Turkmen health facilities are experiencing an overload of COVID-19 symptoms.
In July, 30 mobile phone repairmen were detained on unknown charges in Ashgabat. The authorities summoned their relatives for questioning. The authorities also threatened to dismiss their jobs.
The EU SWITCH-Asia Switch Garment project has been launched in order to improve the sustainability of the sector. 19 garment factories have signed up to take part in the first phase of the project. The goal is to increase the competitiveness of the garment industry and to improve the sector’s environmental performance. The partners of the project include Geres, the Turkmen Initiative for Human Rights, and the Garment Manufacturing Association of Cambodia.
