As individuals and as a community, we can all make a difference by insisting suppliers provide transparency of their supply chain. In 2014, we established our own manufacturing facility in Vietnam which entailed purchasing a modern built Factory and providing a large investment in equipment where we now employ approx. 90-100 staff who apart from above award wages and overtime, are supplied meals and given many employment privileges like Health and Pension entitlements also. In addition our factory has a cooling facility to ensure employees work in a comfortable clean environment to the benefit of all concerned.
This ownership of our offshore manufacturing facility and its operation exclusively for ourselves allows for direct control over :-
- Product Quality
- Delivery Timeframes
- Manufacturing volume
Shirts North provides customers with a complete transparency of our manufacturing chain and has confidence that we exceed both local and international labour standards. We are fortunate to have such capable and motivated employees and we place the utmost importance on their health, safety and wellbeing in the workplace.
