SgT will share its textile industry expertise and ‘boots on the ground’ technical insights at ICPHSO (International Consumer Product Health and Safety Organization) 2021 Annual Virtual Meeting and Symposium.
During a plenary session on “Practical Strategies for Business Continuity, Ongoing Product Safety, and Increased Visibility”, Jennifer Miller, Senior Director Business Development, North America, will discuss the consequences of COVID-19 on supply chains and how brands and retailers should adapt to ensure business continuity and ongoing safety and quality in the new normal.
About the Session
Ensuring supply chain continuity while managing risk and disruption has become a key priority globally. Practices that ran smoothly before COVID-19 must now be reassessed, with the need to evaluate vendors and suppliers more carefully and develop processes that protect resilience. Traditional onsite product controls have been challenged by ongoing travel restrictions, budget constraints, lack of transparency, and more, compelling businesses to adapt and find new ways to safeguard continuity.
Securing product safety and quality in this ‘new normal’ requires visibility over the entire supply chain to better understand its composition and processes for greater traceability. With the help of advanced technologies and adaptable tools, teams can also remotely monitor this improved transparency to ensure product safety and quality in an unprecedented era.
From raw materials (including fabric, leather, and trims and accessories) and development to finished products, SgT aims to help secure the safety, compliance and quality of its clients’ products via audits, technical assistance, inspections, laboratory testing, and sustainability solutions.
We are putting our manufacturing experience and product expertise at the disposal of our clients to help them adjust during this difficult time. Thanks to the agility and flexibility of our teams and our local infrastructure we are able to quickly implement on-site and remote solutions to respond to our clients’ needs.
