T.CON, a German SAP consulting and systems company, has acquired a new implementation partner Pacific Textiles, a leading manufacturer of customised knitted fabrics, for products like its TRIM Suite.

With headquarters located in Hong Kong and its production based in Panyu, South China, Pacific Textiles is well-equipped with advanced production facilities, including a scalable water treatment facility and cogeneration power plant. Providing integrated services of knitting, dyeing, printing and finishing, with an annual production capacity of approximately 87 million kilograms. More than 6,500 staff are employed in the production area and many of them are experienced professionals in textiles industry.

The company has collaborated closely with apparel brand owners to design fabrics for a broad range of garments, including men’s, women’s and children’s clothing, sportswear, swimwear and underwear, and it is a longstanding SAP customer with extensive SAP expertise.

Employees of the internal SAP team are working under the direction of CIO Hubert Tsang in a newly founded 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. 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, they demonstrated how T.CON's full-scale optimisation tool TRIM Suite can generate and optimise slitting patterns for the pulp and paper industry. This enables the companies to support customers worldwide with innovative, SAP native solutions – custom tailored to the mill industry, the German specialist explains.

SAP is an information management system that enables all the parts of a large organisation to talk in the same language. “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”, said Gerhard Göbel, Senior Consultant SCM at T.CON. “Our implementation partner knows the market and opens doors for us. We make our software products and internationally-unique industry expertise available to them.”
