WOOLRICH, INC., the oldest apparel manufacturer in the United States, founded by Mr. John Rich 175 years ago, chooses TUKAcad.NET suite from TUKATECH, INC., to replace their present CAD systems.

“Although our relationship with TUKATECH is fairly new, it hasn't taken us long to realize what an efficient, professional, and people oriented company they are. To date, we have used TUKAweb's Design, Development, and Sample Making services which certainly exceeded our expectations. The fit and quality of work have proven to be excellent. We have also used TUKAweb’s electronic services where patterns can be downloaded instantly by our vendors – this has been a Godsend. The translation of data from any CAD system to any other CAD system is being done at such a rapid speed compared to sending paper patterns via Snail Mail. We here at Woolrich are very glad to have chosen TUKAcad for Pattern Design systems, this opens so many new windows of opportunities for our Company.” says Joanna Francis, Supervisor of the Product Development Department at Woolrich, Inc.,

“WOOLRICH has been using TUKAweb services for some time now – from pattern making to fit development and from prototypes to final samples. They have seen the speed and ease with which our services and systems can dramatically reduce their product development time. They evaluated our CAD systems and decided to replace their CAD systems”, quoted Paul Clarke, Vice President of Operations for the TUKAgroup. “I am extremely proud of the relationship we have built with such a well known and respected company,” added Clarke.
