Global Network for Materials Procurement
We procure materials from the Kurabo Group in Japan and abroad as well as our own network, with the goal of procuring high quality and cost effective materials. In addition to proprietary product development capabilities, we either procure clothing accessories, such as buttons, fasteners, leather, fur, and feathers, among others, from local sources or from other countries. This enables us to deliver products that make customer needs a reality at the right price.
Optimized Production System
We carry out production activities at partner plants in China as well as ASEAN to fit the quality, cost and delivery needs of our customers. The keyword behind these efforts is “optimized production” tailored to customer needs. Currently, nearly all of our products made overseas are bound for the Japan market, but in the future we plan on cultivating a sales network in order to develop markets locally where our production bases are located, with an eye on achieving local production for local consumption.
New Fabric Plants and Production Plants
One of our greatest advantages is our ability to leverage Kurabo Industries’ truly wide range of high quality materials. Another one of our strengths is the ability to find sound fabric plants near our production bases and commercialize products at sewing plants with technologies geared toward the Japan market. Quality control engineers we employ locally work to cultivate and advise partner plants, and we also dispatch engineers from Japan to select and audit new partners. Through our collaboration with plants that specialize and excel in various fields and domains, we are able to produce merchandise that features a combination of high quality and low price.
In Indonesia, we leverage diverse information obtained from our representative office and local production plant to source excellent fabric manufacturers capable of developing high grade materials at competitive prices. Centered on P.T. KURABO MANUNGGAL TEXTILE INDUSTRIES, we carry nearly every type of basic material, from cotton to synthetic fibers, and we are carrying out technical surveys with the aim of procuring even higher grade materials locally. Our goal is to discover new suppliers that can deliver merchandise at reasonable prices to meet the increasingly sophisticated and diverse needs of our customers in Japan.
