World-Class Manufacturing

We are proud to be a leader in our industry in the deployment of manufacturing technology. We are in a constant cycle of investment as new and upgraded technology becomes available. We use the leading technology that you would expect; from laser and ultrasonic cutting to seamless bonding. We have a vast array of technology for printing, engraving, and embroidery using various materials. We also develop our own technology and machinery solutions to our partner’s challenges.

A leading apparel manufacturer in South East Asia

With a long history and highly experienced team of over 13,000 colleagues across our 10 manufacturing facilties in South East Asia, Hi-Tech offer world-class manufacturing capabilities to complex global value chains.

Our scale and expertise means that we help our partners to resolve the issues caused by having too many small or underdeveloped suppliers to deal with.

The strategic placing of our facilities in Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, and Laos means that our partners can benefit from the flexibility of a diverse manufacturing portfolio in ensuring available capacity and high levels of service.

Our partners also benefit from the advantageous duty and tax status offered by various transnational trade agreements for products originating from these countries.

A technology-first mindset

We understand that manufacturing processes that are constantly limited or fail to develop at the same speed as the rest of the industry can cause obstacles to global brands. Hi-Tech have a strong tech-first mindset. This means that we add value to our partners by identifying and implementing new technologies that improve products and processes.

But this is not just limited to our manufacturing capabilities. Our focus on digitalization throughout our business means that we maximize the potential of our colleagues and our integration with our partners, for truly world-class outcomes.

An ambitious plan for the future

We take a proactive approach to building capacity in our operations and plan ahead in multi-year cycles. This means that our partners can be assured of ongoing, significant increases in production capacity that avoids the disruption caused by suppliers who fail to keep pace with their ambitions.

Investing in physical assets is just one area of our ambitious growth plans. In addition to our investments to grow capacity, we are also investing in digitalization throughout our business as we seek new ways to maximize potential in our colleagues and in our relationships with our partners.

Focusing on strategy and collaboration

Traditional relationships between buyers and suppliers were transactional, and often adversarial. At Hi-Tech we have a much more progressive view of these relationships and seek true partnerships with a small number of valuable partners.

What sets us apart in our industry is our focus on strategy and collaboration. This means we seek to understand our partner’s strategy and align our strategy with theirs. This means we can collaborate on the basis of trust and transparency. The result is the exchange of knowledge and the creation of value that goes much further than just a transaction.

Deploying technology to maximize potential

We work transparently and collaboratively with our partners to develop new technologies and intellectual property that creates additional value. We develop and scale our own automation solutions.

We use automation as a tool to support our colleagues in maximising their potential and not as a replacement for human ingenuity. Our partners benefit from the ongoing incremental improvements that we make that put us ahead of our competitors.
