Beijing Longfuqi Industrial & Trading Co. Ltd

Established in 1992, Beijing Longfuqi is a midsize maker of genuine and synthetic leather coats and jackets, as well as fur garments. Its peak production months are from July to December. During the off-season, the company produces knitted apparel.

OBM orders account for 90 percent of exports. The company markets leather garments under its Elansi, Pretty Pile and Meilirong brands.

Beijing Longfuqi posted 30 percent growth in export sales in 2005. About US$3.5 million worth of leather garments were shipped, mainly to Russia. The company also exports to the EU.

Leather garments account for close to 90 percent of total sales. The company focuses production on midrange leather coats and jackets

The type, quality and amount of leather and fur trimming used in designs determine product prices. Higher-priced garments come in genuine leather and fur and are priced between US$150 and US$200 each. Midrange models with faux fur trimming are from US$80 to US$100. PU leather coats and jackets with faux fur trimming and polyester lining are between US$40 and US$50.

The company sources goat and sheepskin from the provinces of Hebei and Shandong, and genuine and synthetic fur from Shandong and Shanghai. Accessories such as buttons and zippers are purchased in Fujian, Guangdong and Beijing.

Even with increasing material and labor costs, the company will keep its product prices stable in the next six months.

The company has two designers who use Adobe PhotoShop and CorelDraw in product development. It takes them two or three days to prepare a new model. During the peak season, 20 to 30 designs are made in a month, but only 10 go into mass production. About US$50,000 is spent on R&D annually.

In 2007, Beijing Longfuqi plans to concentrate on fur garments instead of leather apparel because of growing demand for the product.

The company operates an 8,000sqm factory that houses its executive offices, warehouses for leather, fur and accessories, and workshops for R&D, sample production, cutting, sewing, finishing and packaging.

Before production, six sample makers produce mock-ups using nine sewing machines, three ironing machines and 11 cutting tables.

The cutting section has 44 workers and separate areas for leather, and genuine and synthetic fur. Aside from ironing and cutting tables, it is equipped with a Lastar brand fusing machine from South Korea and automatic cutters.
