Computer Aided Manufacturing
The drive for excellence goes beyond the production floor. It starts right from the beginning – pattern making. Asco employs the latest GGT pattern generating and grading system, which minimises and possibility of error by excluding human intervention.
Sampling is an independent and standalone division which contains its own pattern making, cutting and stitching areas. All the samples are manufactured as per the product specifications from the buyer’s requirements.
This department is fully equipped with cloth layer machines, commercial cutting tables, knife band machines and cutting machines which are handled by fully trained and experienced cutting experts.
In our stitching department we utilise the latest technology which includes belt loop attaching machines, back yoke attaching machines, automatic pocket setters, pocket hamming machines, etc. All machines are fully or semi-automatic.
Washing & Finishing
This department is capable of carrying out many types of washes such as enzyme, silicon, indigo and stone wash. We also have the ability to perform sandblasting and moustache washing. Our washing department has evolved tremendously over the years and kept up to date with all new techniques. Technology such as laser machines, Jeanologia and air wash technology are staple in all factories.
We send our washing managers to Italy and Turkey on a yearly basis to learn new recipes and techniques. We import some of our chemicals from Italy and these can be used in washing, if requested by our customers.
We expanded our washing department in 2008 and are now able to wash 500,000 garments on a monthly basis.
Here is also where the final touches are applied to the finished product before being packed in accordance with the customer’s instructions which comply with international standards.
The Company ensures it produces only the best staff by running its own training centre. The centre is managed by experienced personnel who run it with the utmost skill and patience.
Our designers are trained to use the latest software and travel all over Europe to catch the best trends – they regularly attend shows such as Bread and Butter and also the Copenhagen International Fashion Fair to ensure that we are at the forefront of trends.
Research & Development
The company prides itself on innovative ideas and works hard to ensure that they are ahead of trends. Our R&D team work closely with our design team on areas such as washing, fabrication and marketing. We feel it is important that when developing a product we ensure that it suits the market we are aiming for.
