Ukraine Apparel Industry Production Potential

Famous clothes manufacturers are highly interested in the technologically developed apparel industry of Ukraine. They assess it as an alternative to the “far” production resource of China, or the too-expensive labor in “Old Europe.”

Proof of this is growth of business activity in 2016. According to statistics, almost 65 percent of new orders for clothes production are from abroad. Export of finished products increased by 8 percent and reached $719.1 million. Foreign direct investment reached $1.5 million. At the current pace, local business representatives expect further placement of big orders from foreign companies at garment enterprises in 2017 and subsequent years.

Ukrainian clothes manufacturers are more flexible in terms of supply offer, with the same production technology and higher product quality than China, Vietnam, Poland, Romania or Bulgaria.

“If the garments are shipped in Friday from Ukraine, then on Monday they are released by customs in Europe,” they say at factories. Within a few days, clothes move from sewing factories in Ukraine to the malls or boutiques of any European Union country. Understanding logistical advantages, quality and competitive pricing, European clothes brands are planning to increase the volume of orders for certain types of products. First of all these are exclusive products and clothes collections.

The example of Skvyrateks company is an illustration of fashion brands moving towards cooperation with Ukrainian producers. One of the oldest enterprises in the industry, which started work in the early 1940s, Skvyrateks has received new impulses for development because of new investment. Today, it is moving towards an increase in production volumes and an expansion of product range. After a complete modernization of production, including equipment of the production lines with multifunctional sewing and knitting machines, foreign customers became interested in the possibilities of this factory.

“We finished complete production modernization in 2014, but still continue to expand the park of new equipment. This year we purchased JUKI eye buttonhole machine and hand-stitching effect machine. The company installed ironing tables and Italian production irons, bar tack machines, overlocks and new universal sewing machines with a digital program control that has the best energy efficiency and performance. Seamstresses can do more transactions in less time. It gave a chance to increase production volume this year. Only in November, we have produced more than 9,000 units out of which 8,000 are coats and jackets for women,” Liudmyla Semko, the director of Skvyrateks LLC, said.

During 2015-2016, the factory produced more than 200 models of clothes for nine international clothes brands from Germany, France, Belgium and Latvia.

“During third and fourth trimester of this year we worked with mainly four brands. It is about 10 to 20 new clothes models monthly. Currently we produce for a Belgium collection of coats for women in spring 2017, ” Semko said.

The customer wants to be sure of product quality while opening possibilities of new production capacity, together with the need to reduce costs.

“Our production was certified by Bureau Veritas Quality International for compliance with international quality standards, organization and work protection. The company implemented quality management system ISO 9001-2001. In addition, we have combined system of control and quality evaluation. On the one hand it is internal control in between operations of more than 40 operations and parameters of compliance towards approved product sample and standard documentation. On the other hand it is a control of finished products by a customer’s technical person. Sometimes it may be the whole order control,” Liudmyla Semko said.

Customers think that strict quality control is necessary, even with modern equipment and skilled professionals. The possibility of free access to production is important to establish trusting relationship.

“With Skvyrateks company, we have been working for many years and are satisfied with our cooperation: high quality, timely deliveries of finished products, competent management and a willingness to carry out urgent orders. The enterprise fulfilled for us orders of such German companies, as Walker, Manisa, Bonita. We hope that in future our cooperation will continue,” Johann Garder, the director of Company Hajohn-International OHG, said.

Skvyrateks LLC is part of OLTEKS (www.olteks.com) production association, which operates in the apparel industry market since 1995 and is specialized in sewed products manufacturing.

The company includes two apparel factories with more than 500 employees. For 20 years, OLTEKS has been a reliable partner in providing uniform for ministries and departments (Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, Interior Ministry of Ukraine, National Guard of Ukraine, National Police of Ukraine, State Border Service of Ukraine and others), and in providing special clothes to leading national mechanical engineering, infrastructure and telecommunications companies.

Arkadii Stuzhuk: OLTEKS supplied 15 thousand insulation jackets from American POLARTEC for Defense Ministry needs

22 November, to fulfill contract №286/3/16/90 OLTEKS LLC supplied to Ukraine Defense Ministry insulation costume jackets batch manufactured from American company Polartec fleece fabric. A few days earlier, company donated two hundred fleece jackets to Ukrainian soldiers team, who are one kilometer from line in war area.

"Contemporary and warm" - mostly these comments can be heard from Ukrainian soldiers who have experience in new Ukrainian production fleece jacket use. Jacket is part of combat uniform set (CUS) and is designed for use under combat conditions and in constant dislocation points as warming layer to winter windproof and waterproof jacket, or other CUS products.

Main material for insulation jackets manufacture is colored knitted combed "fleece" type fabric with pile. Defense Ministry insisted that fabric had special technical characteristics. Fabric should maintain maximum heat (total thermal resistance not less than 0.25 C°/W per m²), be windproof (air permeability not less than 400 m²/s), maintain elasticity during operation (return to the previous state), be resistant to abrasion, sweat action and friction.

"In May-June we had market monitoring and available fleece test that meets Defense Ministry requirements. Among current proposals, only Polartec brand fleece met Defense Ministry requirements. This is American manufacturer, whose products because of their quality characteristics are demanded in the armies of NATO", - said OLTEKS LLC main technologist Liubov Ryzhaieva.

Expertise ordered by International institute of complex researches and expertises in certified laboratory is a proof that American company Polartec production fleece significantly exceeds existing market analogs. It is better according to functional properties (air permeability, heat protection, resistance to abrasion, resistance to compression, elasticity) and fabric thickness properties.

Ukraine Defense Ministry agreed to OLTEKS LLC “fleece” type Polartec Insulation brand fabric use to manufacture jacket insulation.

"This year warm clothes procurement procedure was started by Defense Ministry in the middle of summer. This affected terms of manufacture and supply of finished products. They were the shortest. We manufactured and supplied warm clothes ahead of schedule according to contract to Defense Ministry, for what I would like to thank all company enterprises employees", ― said Arkadii Stuzhuk – OLTEKS LLC director.

In Defense Ministry announced domestic enterprises products quality check. Ukraine armed forces Material supply development and maintenance center representatives confirmed manufactured insulation costume jackets quality to OLTEKS employees. According to Customer representative words in selective batch were found deviations, within acceptable norms, which applied to separate jacket details processing (zipper and identifiers). Mentioned comments do not influence uniform functional characteristics and were eliminated inside production facilities during check. According to accepting control act insulation costume jacket is manufactured according to TU 14.1-108-00034022:2016 and may be used by soldiers as part of field uniform combat uniform set.

After quality check 15 thousand insulation costume jackets were supplied to joint center in Khmelnytskyi city. A day before, to help soldiers who are one kilometer from line in war area OLTEKS LLC employees donated two hundred fleece jackets.

"Right now, soldiers may be outside: in blockhouses, in trenches, with temperature which is below zero °C and cool wind. They are in need of warm clothes. Company employees, whole OLTEKS LLC collective responded to volunteers request for help and at own expense, in addition to main work produced two hundred fleece jackets. Together with good health, courage and luck wishes we transferred them to volunteer organization and soon soldiers will get warm clothes", – said Ganna Ogarenko – OLTEKS LLC supervisory board chairman.

Arkadii Stuzhuk: OLTEKS supplied six thousand winter jackets for soldiers in war area ahead of schedule

10 November OLTEKS LLC according to contract №286/3/16/98 supplied second batch of winter windproof and waterproof jackets (three thousand pieces) to Ukraine Defense Ministry. Thursday, 3 November according to contract first batch of jackets (three thousand pieces) was supplied to joint center in Kyiv. Defense Ministry stress, that warm clothes will be sent first of all soldiers in war area.

Under auction terms, auction was, 8 August, summer end, in ProZorro public electronic purchases system, auction winner should have supplied to Defense Ministry 10 thousand windproof and waterproof jackets before 15 November inclusive. Customer demanded that auction was according to simplified procedure. Price was main evaluation criterion for contract conclusion, which bidder can offer for separate lot.

«Of eight companies, which participated in tender, we were winner according to lowest price for windproof and waterproof jackets manufacture. Defense Ministry chose simplified bidding procedure. Producers have to be in time to perform semiannual workload during four months: approve samples and get laboratory conclusions, buy materials and start production, get laboratory conclusions on products quality, pass acceptance procedure and supply products to Defense Ministry joint center. Work starts from receipt of signed agreement from Customer. It is not clear, why with warm clothes for soldiers supply issue urgency and product complexity whole month was needed to sign and to transfer contract. During this month samples could be approved, or production started. In other words, soldiers could get warm clothes one month earlier», ? said Arkadii Stuzhuk – OLTEKS LLC director.

Winter windproof and waterproof jacket is main insulation element of combat uniform set (CUS) for Ukraine armed forces soldiers. It consists of two items: jacket and insulation. New products fabric material will be used for the first time this year.

«Jacket was designed by Ukraine armed forces Material supply development and maintenance center specialists. They suggested specifications, which set clear jacket design, materials and accessories requirements. Jacket is made from produced in Ukraine water-resistant fabric with microporous foam and film coating. According to qualities this fabric is the closest to import membranous fabrics. Hollowsoft is used as insulation material. Clothes from hollowsoft are warm, keep form and do not accumulate static electricity. In addition, insulation for the first time this year will have camouflage properties. Jacket lining is made from polyamide fibers instead of polyester. This material is stronger, more durable against tear and rubbing. Jacket and insulation is difficult to sew product. In addition to specialized fabric purchase additionally manufacturer has to invest in sewing machines modernization and to buy sewing machines teflon details with needle details. These are expensive things, even for series production», ? said Lidiia Aksanova ? OLTEKS LLC production head.

Present at acceptance customer representatives were satisfied with products quality. According to their words winter windproof and waterproof jackets are manufactured according to specifications TU 14.1-134-00034022-2016.

«First snow fell on almost entire territory of Ukraine. In Eastern Ukraine in the evening temperature is below zero °C. With this temperature without warm clothes even light wind seems cold. If soldiers are not provided with warm clothes on time, second winter outside in blockhouses, in trenches with temperature which is below zero °C will be one more unnecessary test.

Ukrainian Hydrometeorological Centre predicts short thaw after which we should expect further temperature decrease and frosts. Before this time, company plans to complete winter windproof and waterproof jackets supply according to contract №286/3/16/98», ? said Arkadii Stuzhuk.

We remind that "OLTEKS" LLC was first who supplied warm clothes to Defense Ministry and supplied uniform for military in Eastern Ukraine ahead of schedule.

Today,  OLTEKS takes measures to certify products, approve worksamples, and to produce warm clothes to hand over to Defense ministrywarehouses and to provide soldiers with warm clothes.

We see that main problem, that threatens clothes handover to UDM balance on time, is clothes acceptance mechanism uncertainty. Six monthsago, clothes manufacture quality was controlled by two institutions from Ministry side. Under new rules military bodies should be cancelled, andtherefore additional agreements to concluded clothes supply contractsshould be signed, which determine new rules.

30 September, responsible persons in Ministry did not agree additionalagreements texts. We monitor situation on a daily basis and encourageofficials to solve "paper" problem.
