Ethiopia: Am­bas­sador Gar­ment to dou­ble pro­duc­tion ca­pac­ity

Stitch World - - NEWS TRACK -

Am­bas­sador Gar­ment and Trad­ing Plc, one of the lead­ing suit man­u­fac­tur­ers in Ethiopia, has an­nounced its plans to dou­ble its gar­ment pro­duc­tion ca­pac­ity by the end of this year. The fac­tory, at Gerji, presently man­u­fac­tures 500 suits per day but once the first phase of the new fac­tory, at Ge­lan, gets com­pleted, the man­u­fac­turer ex­pects to pro­duce 1,000 suits per day. Am­bas­sador also has plans to re­place all its man­ual ma­chines with ad­vanced and au­to­mated ma­chines once the fac­tory shifts to Ge­lan.

While speak­ing to the press, Seid Ber­ahn, Owner, Am­bas­sador Gar­ment, re­port­edly men­tioned that after in­vest­ing 350 mil­lion birr in Phase I of set­ting up the new fa­cil­ity, the same in­vest­ment will be made for Phase II as well. Com­ple­tion of the sec­ond phase would mean fur­ther ex­pan­sion of ca­pac­ity to 2,000 suits, the com­pany claims.

Ad­di­tion­ally, Am­bas­sador has inked an agree­ment with MACPI, the undis­puted leader in the press­ing field, in or­der to pur­chase press­ing, fin­ish­ing and cut­ting ma­chines. A sim­i­lar agree­ment has been signed with Juki as well for the pur­chase of com­put­erised sew­ing ma­chines. “We have signed agree­ments with both Juki and MACPI so that our qual­ity can be en­hanced; thereby en­abling us to ex­port the suits man­u­fac­tured by us to other for­eign coun­tries,” averred Ber­ahn.

At present, the gar­ment man­u­fac­turer im­ports tex­tiles/fabrics from for­eign mar­kets like Turkey, In­dia and China; how­ever, it now plans to pro­cure them from the lo­cal mar­ket.
