The success of the apparel manufacturing industry across Canada and the U.S. is largely dependent on current consumer trends, as well as the cost of producing clothing in North America compared to overseas. This dynamic industry is responsible for the creation of garments, which also include footwear and leather goods. Major contributors include Hugo Boss, Ralph Lauren, Levi Strauss and Nike. GAO RFID is expertly aware of the challenges found in clothing manufacturing. We realize that profitability is often determined by the efficiency of the production line and a company’s ability to offer clothing retailers a quality brand.
