GSD (Corporate) Ltd., which is part of Coats Global Services, has entered into an agreement with Mr Engineer to market its solutions to the international sewn products industry.
On partnering with Mr Engineer, Paul Timson, Managing Director of GSD averred, “This is an important next step in the expansion of the range of business solutions that GSD provides the sewn products industry to increase productivity, develop technical skills and drive efficiency.”
While GSD will act as the primary sales conduit, Mr Engineer will be responsible for the ongoing product development and day-to-day global support. The partnership with Mr Engineer follows the announcement in May 2015 that Coats acquired 100% of GSD (Corporate) Ltd after a one year successful strategic alliance.
Mr Engineer, a real-time monitoring solution, combines engineering best practice with strategic tools to increase productivity and efficiency of the operator, by mapping its practice and performance against an established cycle time. It captures and quantifies down-time, tracking every cycle to provide an accurate picture of operator’s pace and identify areas for improvement, the press release mentions.
Jerry Tew, President and CEO, Mr Engineer said, “Our areas of expertise are highly complementary. Following Coats’ acquisition of GSD, we are delighted to be associated with a company with such a strong and distinguished global presence. Our product has always championed the importance of the operator in manufacturing – something that fits well with the heritage and history of Coats – and we believe this agreement will enable us to reach a greater range of global manufacturers to help them maximise performance and output.”
