PTC (Nasdaq: PMTC), the Product Development Company,
today announced that
Delta Galil Industries Ltd. (listed at
Tel-Aviv Stock Exchange and Nasdaq: DELT), a leading global
apparel company headquartered in Israel, has decided to
implement FlexPLM, PTCs solution
for retail, footwear, and apparel. As a global manufacturer
of intimate apparel, men's underwear and socks, Delta Galil
is focused on constantly improving its development and
manufacturing processes. Design and development account for
70% of a products lifecycle.
Therefore, it is a key success factor to engage with
suppliers and customers as early as possible in the process
to cut lead time and optimize efficiency in a global product
development environment. To achieve this strategic
objective, Delta Galil selected FlexPLM to take advantage of
a powerful PLM solution supporting automated electronic
engagement with the supply chain and customers.
Founded in 1975, Delta Galil has expanded its business to
become a truly global manufacturer, encompassing design,
development and manufacturing sites in North and Central
America, Europe, Asia and Africa. The company manufactures
apparel for leading retailers, as well as highly customized
fashion for leading global brands such as WalMart, Victoria
Secret, M&S, Calvin Klein, Hugo Boss, Nike and others.
Since Delta became a more
global focused company, there was a growing need in managing
the complete product lifecycle from concept through to the
customer, said Avi Pinhas, CIO of
Delta Galil. We needed to reduce
the development time and automate processes to cut the lead
time. In parallel, we wanted to improve and better control
the extended supply chain, thus making it more transparent.
PTCs FlexPLM solution proved to
be the best choice for our highly global collaboration
environment, providing a web-based single source of truth.
A team of specialists from PTC's
Global Service Organization (GSO) will help Delta to
implement the PLM solution and adapt it to its
customer-specific needs in a period of only 4 to 5 months.
PTC's proven apparel know-how and
industry experience contributed to the competitive win,
giving the Delta Galil management confidence to embrace a
broad-based PLM solution.
We also expect FlexPLM to
improve collaboration with our key customers,
said Pinhas. Once the roll-out
is realized, the global PLM environment will contribute to
grow our product margin, improve data accuracy, product
quality and operational efficiency.
To improve cost control, Delta also intends to integrate
FlexPLM with its ERP and costing systems.
Delta Galil provides high
quality innovative fashion and basic apparel to address a
wide variety of price points for a broad, global customer
base, said Kathleen Mitford,
vice president, vertical market strategy for retail,
footwear and apparel, PTC. The
companys customized vertical
market strategy covers every stage of the product lifecycle
from initial design and development through manufacturing of
fabrics, accessories and garments to logistics, distribution
and replenishment. That's why
they need an extremely powerful PLM solution capable of
supporting all phases including collaboration links to
customers and suppliers processes.
