TAL Group has been operating in Vietnam since 2004, when it established TAL Apparel Limited in Phuc Khanh Industrial Zone in northern Thai Binh Province. It received investment licence for the Vinh Phuc factory in 2014.
It may be mentioned here that the company has recently deployed Infor CloudSuite Fashion in a bid to create an agile business model to target high-end customer brands and is expecting organisation-wide rollout by the end of 2018.
With the deployment of ERP, TAL will be able to manage both style and non-style products in the same system and gain visibility across every aspect of the value chain as the system can connect and share information with the company’s internal team, suppliers, production staff, and customers within a secure infrastructure built specifically for fashion.
TAL is one of the world’s leading clothing providers and 90 per cent of its products are exported to the US. Besides Vietnam, it has manufacturing units in China, Indonesia, Thailand, Ethiopia and Malaysia. About 25,000 employees work at TAL’s units to produce shirts, trousers, suits, blouses, knitwear and outerwear for several leading global brands.
