Garment-textile industry applies digital transformation, circular production to overcome difficulties

(BGO) - In the context of sharply increasing industrial investment rates and workers' wages in Bac Giang province, some textile and garment investors have moved production to other countries. Therefore, the application of digital transformation and green and circular production in this field is very important, helping businesses save production costs, protect the environment, and overcome difficulties.

According to statistics, the province has 200 garment enterprises, with about 50 engaging in regular export activities. Garment producers are still facing many challenges, including high inflation in key markets such as the US and Europe that results in a decrease in purchasing power and low orders.

Tien Dat Garment Import-Export Co., Ltd, in Hau village, Dai Lam commune, Lang Giang has nine production lines with more than 400 employees. Nguyen Ngoc Giang, Director of the company said: “Our revenue in the first quarter of 2023 was only 15 billion VND (639.522 USD), down about 15% compared to the same period last year. The income of workers also decreased by 15-20%. We have to find small orders and make products that are not our strengths to ensure income and retain workers”.

Due to the global economic recession, many businesses operating in the garment and textile industry in Bac Giang, especially small businesses, have been significantly affected. Some had to move to another field, and even others had to move production to another country.

To overcome difficulties, six large garment enterprises namely Ha Phong Export Garment Joint Stock Company; Crystal Martin Vietnam Company Limited; Bac Giang LGG Garment Corporation; Minh Duc branch of Ha Bac Export Garment Joint Stock Company; Ha Bac Export Garment Joint Stock Company; and Bac Giang BGG Garment Corporation are constantly looking for new customers. At the same time, they apply digital transformation in management and production such as human resources management, inventory management, financial settlement, energy saving, production cost reduction and productivity increase by applying new technology and circular production.

For example, Bac Giang LGG Garment Corporation recently purchased a number of modern sewing and automatic fabric cutting machines with many functions, meeting many stages of work, thus reducing production time and manpower. Each automatic fabric cutting machine works as a replacement for 7-8 workers.

A number of other enterprises such as Bac Giang BGG Garment Corporation and Crystal Martin Vietnam Co., Ltd also install and use solar power panels for production, reducing dependence on grid electricity.

Some garment enterprises carry out internal circulation production, including recovery of condensate in the steam pipeline system; recovery and circulation of indoor unit water at the garment factory's cooling system; converting coal-fired boilers to waste cloth-burning boilers, thus saving a large amount of coal, and basically destroying waste cloth.

According to the provincial Department of Industry and Trade, currently textile and garment enterprises are recovering as the Covid-19 epidemic in the country has been controlled. However, it still takes a long time for the industry to recover quickly and regain the growth momentum like in the years before the pandemic.

To remove difficulties for and help textile and garment businesses continue to invest and develop in Bac Giang, Nguyen Van Phuong, Deputy Director of the Department of Industry and Trade, said that it is necessary to create a favorable investment and business environment for enterprises, including increasing support for science and technology application; improving traffic, electricity, water and telecommunications infrastructure systems in a synchronous, modern, smooth and safe direction; developing various types of services; attracting investment projects in logistics infrastructure.
