Ambassador Garment and Trading Plc, one of the leading suit manufacturers in Ethiopia, has announced its plans of doubling its garment production capacity by the end of this year. The factory, at Gerji, presently manufactures 500 suits but once the first phase of the new factory, at Gelan, gets completed, the manufacturer expects to produce 1,000 suits. Ambassador also has plans to replace all its manual machines with advanced and automated machines once the factory shifts to Gelan.

While speaking to the press, Seid Berahn, Owner, Ambassador Garment, reportedly mentioned that after investing 350 million birr in Phase I of setting up the new facility, the same investment will be made for the Phase II as well. Completion of the second phase would mean further expansion of capacity to 2,000 suits, the company claims.

Additionally, Ambassador has inked an agreement with MACPI, the undisputed leader in the pressing field, in order to purchase pressing, finishing and cutting machines. A similar agreement has been signed with Zuki as well for the purchase of computerised sewing machines. “We have signed agreements with both Zuki and MACPI so that our quality can be enhanced; thereby enabling us to export the suits manufactured by us to other foreign countries,” averred Berahn.

At present, the garment manufacturer imports textiles/fabrics from foreign markets like Turkey, India and China; however, it now plans to procure them from the local market.
