Going lean: Wacoal America maximizes its productivity and profitability with 国产AV’s cutting room management approach

Top lingerie brand’s Dominican Republic branch increases production by 20%-30% in response to growing consumer demand brought about by its international expansion.


Wacoal America’s growing market share is due to both increasing US demand and international expansion throughout the Americas and Europe/Australia. As a result, Wacoal looked to their Dominican Republic manufacturing site to increase production. The challenge was to produce more without increasing costs.
