Werner International: Moving Ahead in 2016


Dear Colleagues,

It is my pleasure to wish you a prosperous 2016 - filled with health and success!

Since 1939, Werner International has provided professional consulting services to over 5,000 organizations in more than 75 countries. We are the undisputed leader of management consulting practices that specialize solely in the textile and fashion industries - our commitment to our clients is unrivaled.

We are currently providing our management consulting services to over 50 private companies globally. In addition, we are pleased to announce that Werner has been chosen as the singular textile firm to exclusively serve the Egyptian Ministry of Investment in the redevelopment of the textile chain. My team of expert consultants is in the process of restructuring the entire state textile industry from Ginning to Ready Made Garments which includes more than 30 vertical companies. The first phase is expected to last over a year, followed by an intense implementation phase.

We have also been commissioned by the powerhouse company of Marubeni and the government of Angola to assist with an exciting new textile start-up plant producing knitwear and denim products. We are currently in Angola training the management in the start-up of the installations and securing the profitability of the plant.

I know that it is through the efforts and reputation of my exceptional consultants, we have secured these important contracts.

As we look forward to 2016 and beyond, we welcome the opportunity to discuss with you the ways we can assist your company to achieve the highest profitability and production possible. Whether it be industrial assistance, marketing and strategic assistance, social and environmental compliance or institutional projects - we have a team of expert consultants ready to serve you.

We are currently in the process of compiling the data for the 2015/2016 edition of our Labor Cost Comparison Report. This useful tool is utilized world-wide by companies, researchers and analysts. At this moment we are collecting labor data and we would like to include the contribution of your company. Please contact Beth Govoni Marshall at bgovoni@wernerintl.com for further information and a copy of our earlier results. All participants will receive a complimentary copy of the new up-to-date report when completed.

I thank you for both our past and future collaboration and look forward to the years ahead, jointly changing the face of the textile and apparel industries.

With my best regards,

Constantine Raptis
Werner International
