Manufacturing in Myanmar
Production in Myanmar
Key advantages of the Myanmar garment factory are competitive prices on quantities over 8.000 pieces and duty free imports to many countries, including the EU. Duty free imports to the E.U. means a lower price of 12% compared to imports from China.
There are not many differences with the production in China. The fabrics are all purchased in China and shipped to Myanmar by sea. That means almost any fabric you can do in China, you can do in Myanmar. Fabrics are imported into Myanmar without any duty because Myanmar is in the ASEAN countries trade agreement. Compared to India and Bangladesh, Myanmar offers more flexibility in fabrics because of the easy supply of fabric from China.
Management of the Myanmar garment factory is 100% Chinese. The factory can best be considered as an extension of the China supply chain. All key staff is highly qualified staff that moved to Myanmar from China. The quality of the products made in Myanmar are of the same level as those made in China, as long as the product is suitable for the garment factory. Delivery time is 3 weeks longer than from China, since the fabric needs to be shipped to Myanmar from China. All fabric gets a careful checking by professional QC before it is shipped. Besides sourcing fabric from China, it is also possible to import fabric from other ASEAN agreement countries such as Taiwan or Korea.
Key products are woven blouses, jackets, tops and trousers. Fabrics the workers can handle well are woven fabrics like poplin, twill, chiffon, taffeta, jacquard etc. For fabric minimums, the same minimums apply as in China, as the fabric is mostly from there. Minimum order qty to outsource production to Myanmar is 8.000 pieces per style. Smaller quantity than that is more practical to manufacturer in China.
For the outsourcing of large quantity knitted T-shirts, sweat shirts or tops, we use our Cambodia garment factory. The Cambodia factory is specialised in garments made of knitted fabric.
The order follow-up is all with our English speaking merchandising team in China. In our head office, all documents are translated into Chinese. All sampling is also done in China. After approval of the PP sample, the paper patterns & fabrics are sent to the Myanmar garment factory. Our China office staff frequently travels to the Myanmar factory and can keep you up to date on the status of your order. You will keep clear communication with one party only. For final inspection, the QC from our China head office travels to Myanmar and will not let the goods ship until they have passed our standards.
