Giving Vertex Plus a new lease of life 'down under' is long-time colleague Denis McAtee, trading as VertexPlus(Australia). His knowledge of Vertex Plus and its development is truly unmatched. From his time in the 1990s running Strathclyde Knitwear in Irvine, Scotland, to his key roles at Skola Uniforms and Black Milk Clothing of Brisbane - who still run on Vertex Plus - there are few who can bring to bear his level of expertise. His team's ability to operate VertexPlus on modern PCs using current operating systems has caught the attention of manufacturers throughout the area.

His next installation is at Merino Country in Queensland and is eagerly awaited. If you need to apply the proven methodology of Vertex Plus to your Production Control environment then don't hesitate to contact Denis.

The push to manufacture overseas gathers pace. Our many contacts in the 35 countries where VERTEX can be found confirm that it is not simply cheaper labour which has made these moves inevitable, but the much reduced burden of all state-imposed costs. Cheaper premises, cheaper fuel - often one quarter of that in the UK - less taxes, less indirect employment costs and most significant of all - less regulation.

The move by Coats-Viyella which has taken the VERTEX Plus and Raw Materials Control modules into Cambodia is typical of a leading British manufacturing company being forced by its competition into working overseas. We take heart from the fact that the production facility employed is "CV" at its core and not simply a Cambodian factory under contract.



Our congratulations go to Gail Baillie of Calgary on what has been an enviable record of VERTEX installations. Gail is also in a good position to supply all VERTEX ticket patterns, including laser.

The Star Garments Group have worked up their sixth VERTEX Plus for Windows system. Martin Emprex (Ceylon) has converted to VERTEX Plus and the new Viyella Holdings factory in Horana has similarly adopted VERTEX Plus for production control as has Jewelknit and Ran Malu. These have been joined by NNE, Hongkong Knitters and recently Jay Jay Mills. VERTEX systems are leading the way to more efficient manufacturing in this important sector of the Sri Lankan economy.

Don't forget to consider the CheckMate system which complements VERTEX and is supplied in Colombo by The Computer Centre (PVT) Limited, where Ashique Mohamed Ali will be pleased to help you with all our products.

A fortunate meeting at the Bobbin Show in Atlanta led to further contact with Apparel Technologies in Karachi. Unfortunately it might be a little while before they can devote a lot of time to promoting VERTEX. The first factory to adopt Vertex Plus has been Cuthberts Babywear (Jaguar) in Faisalabad and we look forward to adding other users in this important manufacturing area.

This is a major opportunity to introduce VERTEX to the many apparel manufacturers in Pakistan and we support with interest the work of Azhar Hasan and his team, in particular Zafar, in their work. Truly a case of "watch this space!"

The man "in the know" for all aspects of VERTEX Plus in New Zealand is Tony Matravers. Long experience with his own manufacturing of thermal wear means you get spot-on comment. If you would like to know more about VERTEX you'll find no better source than this user. Tony has just taken delivery of the new 'Mozart' for Windows package so is right up to the latest mark!

Our presence in this part of the world is much enhanced by VERTEX distributor Craig Kazukaitis who covers New Zealand, Eastern Australia and Fiji. Craig has been distributing GSD systems for years and is a very welcome addition to VERTEX resources in the area.

Mexico remains a primary site for USA companies manufacturing "offshore" under the 807 program. Unusually, the first VERTEX Plus for Windows system has been installed in a Mexican factory by Courtaulds Bodywear - a branch of Courtaulds Textiles UK - now Sara Lee.

We await with interest the reaction of USA companies to this clear and obvious advance into the offshore arena. VERTEX Plus promises to be just as effective in Mexico as it has been for Courtaulds in Morocco.

If you would like to discuss this installation with us, please contact us .



As a popular location for off-shore manufacturing, Fiji is now being looked after by Craig Kazukaitis, the very active VERTEX and GSD distributor based in New Zealand.

Craig has already installed at Classic Apparel and demonstrated that the "packaged" format of VERTEX Plus for Windows makes it an ideal choice for the Fijian manufacturing environment.

The promotion and support of VERTEX products in Madagascar comes under the capable hand of Jim Tew at IOTACS, close by in Mauritius. IOTACS are distributors for all VERTEX products as well as for Checkmate and so forth. The considerable experience brought to bear by Jim Tew is certain to be an asset to clothing manufacturers over the whole area.

The first manufacturer in Madagascar to adopt VERTEX is Cosmos Knits, who will be working up the barcoded production control module over the next few weeks. They will eventually be using four CCD barcode scanners to capture factory data.

If you manufacture in Madagascar and would like to explore the many options Vertex Plus can provide, please contact us below.

The pressure to manufacture overseas is becoming irresistable. Morocco is a classic example where all manufacturing costs, not just cheaper labour, make the bottom line equation unanswerable. Courtaulds (Sara Lee) and Coats-Viyella (Quantum) operate their factories there on VERTEX and several other companies look set to join them.

VERTEX is designed to make shop-floor data capture and analysis simple and effective. In particular, its ability to send formatted data for on-line transmission straight into a database in the UK puts the daily Moroccan production records on executives' screens in good time for effective decision-making. If you want to have this much control over your Moroccan production units please contact us about implementing the hassle-free VERTEX solution.



We are delighted to announce the appointment of International Business Network of Vilnius as VERTEX distributor in Lithuania, where the apparel industry has a significant share of manufacture and exporting.

The first Lithuanian manufacturer to adopt VERTEX Plus for Windows - the barcoded production control module - is Silvos Trikotazas.
