EFI Optitex, Electronics For Imaging’s global provider of integrated 2D & 3D CAD/CAM software solutions for the fashion and apparel industry, is pleased to share the results of its successful 2D CAD implementation with Macron, a leading global sportswear manufacturer.

With headquarters in Bologna, Italy and sales throughout Europe and around the globe, Macron has four dedicated business units; Teamwear, Merchandising, Run and Train, and Athleisure, and over 150 monobrand retail locations, all backed by the company’s concept of product customization.

In an effort to help facilitate its global expansion and deliver on-demand, on-time and on-budget products, Macron replaced its legacy CAD system with EFI Optitex 2D CAD pattern design and nesting solutions in 2018. After a short training period, Macron’s CAD team implemented EFI Optitex into its design and production process, enabling the company to expand its pattern design capabilities while also adding a new design facility in Tianjin, China.

For the last two years, Macron has enjoyed the benefits of EFI Optitex 2D CAD and fully digital design, noting significant enhancements in the company’s design and production workflow, increased speed and ease of use, and time and resource savings. Macron also reports improved communication with designers, improved data sharing with global production partners, and seamless integration with various design software and other CAD/production solutions used by third-party vendors.

“Since implementing EFI Optitex 2D CAD, we have improved our operational efficiency across the board,” said Paolo Guizzardi, chief operating officer of Macron. “We look forward to a long-term relationship with EFI Optitex, with plans to further explore the company’s innovative solutions to meet athletes’ needs and accelerate our development process worldwide.”

Amir Lehr, general manager of EFI Optitex said, “We are proud to support Macron with strong digital solutions to deliver high-quality products and guarantee their continued growth. At EFI Optitex, enabling our customers to gain a competitive edge via digital transformation is key. The team at Macron has proven that this can be done.”

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
