T.Con has acquired Pacific Textiles, a Chinese textile manufacturer, as a new implementation partner for its products like Trim Suite, a full-scale optimization tool. Businesses in the region generate considerable demand for specialized industry expertise for their SAP projects.

Hong Kong-based Pacific Textiles, a textile manufacturer with 6,500 employees, is a longstanding SAP customer with extensive SAP expertise. Employees of the internal SAP team are working under the direction of Hubert Tsang, chief information officer, in a newly founded subsidiary which will act as an implementation partner for other businesses in the region. The company’s collaboration with T.Con provides it with access to comprehensive industry expertise; for example, implementation projects in the paper industry. At the same time, the SAP subsidiary of Pacific Textiles is adding T.Con’sTrim Suite to its portfolio.

During a joint presentation at the Fastmarkets RISI Asian Conference in Shanghai, Hubert Tsang and Bradley Robb, T.Con’s International Business Development manager, introduced the partnership to the circle of Asian participants. They explained the background and potentials of the collaboration to a professional audience representing some of the most influential paper producers in Asia and the world. Together, they demonstrated how T.Con’s Trim Suite can generate and optimize slitting patterns for the pulp and paper industry. This enables them to support customers worldwide with innovative SAP native solutions from custom tailored to the mill industry.

SAP is used for many scenarios in China. However, not all implementation partners in Asia are able to supply the industry expertise that is often needed for the projects,” said Gerhard Göbel, senior consultant SCM at T.Con. “Our implementation partner knows the market and opens doors for us. We make our software products and internationally unique industry expertise available to them.” The partnership is an important milestone for T.Con’s internationalization strategy. Through excellent, highly scalable products and a strong partner who is thoroughly familiar with the regional situation, T.Con intends to open up markets in China and the neighboring countries.
