Collaboration is the new mantra for success in the textile value chain. Phong Phu International (popularly called PPJ) believes in collaboration and thus has in a short span of 12 years not only grown as a garment manufacturer but also spread its wings in various directions, from Trims to Fabric to Fashion. In an exclusive one-on-one with Team Apparel Online Vietnam, Peter Nguy, Director of Business Development and Deepak Thirumalai Raju, Branch Director, share the secret behind the phenomenal success of PPJ.
