The Vietnam industry, as mentioned in our earlier issues, is moving to imbibe greater automation, compelling machine manufacturers to beeline for the country hoping to get a bigger share of the growing business. In this context, the passion to provide the industry with the best of value-added technologies and solutions has driven Nantex, to recently align with ZSK, Germany – world leader in embroidery machines. The company has already found success through its long association with another German world leader Heinz Wazz, known for its sturdy and reliable screen printing machines under the brand name SCHENK. TeamAO talks to Edgar Martinez, General Director, Nantex, operating in Vietnam for over a decade. With growing foreign investments in the Vietnamese garment industry, Tajima Asia Pte. Ltd. – an innovator in embroidery Technology, has introduced a machine that is using very thin threads, which when designed, give the look and appeal of a print. Tajima has hence opened its 3rd service centre in the country. Team AO meets Noboru Ito, Managing Director, Tajima Asia Pte.Ltd. Besides the above, other segments, including ‘Vietnam & Beyond’, the ‘Tech Management’, ‘World Wrap’, ‘Fashion Trends’ and ‘Export Statistics’ make the magazine an interesting read.
