Strengthened network; with a view to the Asian market
Fashion Cloth Furushima led the way for the inspection, pressing, and mending industries into China in 1994. At present the company has two factories in Shanghai , and quality test centers in Qingdao, Changzhou, Dalian, Zhuhai, Dongguan, Nanjing, Nantong and Shanghai, the major apparel producing areas in China.
Furushima has grown into the leading QC company in the Japanese garment industry, dealing with as many as 80 million items annually from knitwear products to dishcloths. Recently businesses that rely on Furushima have recently shifted their focus. Where they used to handle basically apparel they have now ventured into the sale of fashion and lifestyle goods from neckties, shoes, bags to tableware. Therefore, Furushima has strengthened its inspection system to deal with these new products. In order to cope with the increased business, the company has moved its No. 1 factory in Shanghai to the Jinshan district and significantly stepped up its manufacturing process capacity.
Fashion Cloth Furushima's basic stance is to seek constant improvement at each stage of the process of inspection, mending, pressing, storage and distribution, thereby creating an overarching support system. In the area of high-quality fashion, Furushima provides excellent services in terms of both technology and cost. In the meantime, Furushima has set up a new base in India for further expansion into the Asian market.
In order to respond to the increasing demand for reduction of distribution costs and shortened delivery deadlines, a new system is now under consideration and will be put into effect soon.
The finishing process will be done completely at Furushima's overseas bases. In the future, Japanese brands will enter the China market and Furushima will be there to support our customers and with a variety of services.
