Back from India
Hi everybody, Iím back to China after an almost 2 month stay in India. Probably one of the most difficult times I have ever faced in my career. Fortunately the whole thing came to an end. The results could have been far better, but they could have also been far worse. So let it be. I stayed in a place called Tirupur in the state of Tamil Nadu. The area is well known for T-shirt production. And T-shirts were exactly what I have been doing there. Generally the place is very good to do business, but what we all just get to know in the process, is if your agent is a good one or a bad one. Generally the agents are trying to get as many orders as possible. But in most situations they need to plan their orders well and they need to have enough factories that can do the job. Here the agent just took any order he could get and squeezed them into his production. This resulted into a lot of delays and even production problems. In the end nothing goes according to plans. A shortcut is used to finish the goods, and once you are in this business for over 20 years you understand there is no such thing as a shortcut. The shortcut leads to rejected good, the rejected goods lead to less turnover and then the domino effect kicks in. Story short. 1st order was messed up. Second order needed to be saved. Before the goods were ready to ship I stayed there during each step of production making sure nothing goes wrong. No matter whatnhappens, the customer comes first. He paid for what he expected so he needs to receive the goods in the best possible condition.
