How HRT Is Minimizing Waste And Maximizing Profit
Production planning and variants have been a major challenge for Helge Rasmussen Textiles (HRT). With a TRIMIT Fashion solution, however, they have gotten the precise information they need in order to maximize their profits.
Founded in 1935, the Danish company is a highly-respected producer of private-label fashion, primarily jersey knit-fabric for the European market. They rely on all the TRIMIT Fashion features on a daily basis – in particular, the PDM and production management functionality.
"With the help of the data collected in TRIMIT, we get precise information about all of these variants. This makes it possible for us to minimize waste and maximize profit."
From Threads And Trimmings To Customs And Shipping
“TRIMIT Fashion enables us to deal with any sample or production issues on very short notice,” says Per Lindberg, Finance Manager at HRT.
According to Lindberg, implementing TRIMIT was a huge step for the company, one which demanded big changes in the organization. However, the sacrifices were all worth it, as they ended up with a solution that comprehensively fulfils their needs.
Having a factory in Ukraine demands a good deal of planning – and a state-of-the-art ERP system. With TRIMIT and an extra software solution, HRT can manage all the details, from threads and trimmings, and length and weight of the fabric, to customs charges, and shipping from countries inside and outside of the EU. TRIMIT can handle all the variants in their textile production.
“It works beautifully,” Lindberg says.
The More Precise The Data, The Greater The Profit
Because HRT continuously sends raw goods from the EU to their Ukrainian factory, they need help managing passive processing. TRIMIT helps to ensure that they pay the import and export taxes correctly. HRT is currently going through their products to determine which are most wasteful in terms of fabric, thread, and various other materials. The goal is to ensure that they don’t use 80% of their energy on customers that only contribute to 20% of their income.
"TRIMIT is absolutely essential for these analyses. We have a multitude of variants in our work, like production time, materials, and delivery. With the help of the data collected in TRIMIT, we get precise information about all of these variants. This makes it possible for us to minimize waste and maximize profit."
