Productivity Enhancement Solutions

Coats Productivity Enhancement Solutions services help you establish where investment in better quality threads will reduce overall sewing costs.

Our technical experts will visit your site to carry out detailed studies on sewing productivity. We then recommend the most optimum thread quality based on your labour costs. A pilot will also be carried out to prove to you how our recommendations will help reduce your cost of sewing and improve the quality of your end products.

We have carried out 900 studies with customers in over 30 countries, with most cases resulting in reduced sewing costs by using higher quality threads.
