The apparel industry in Kenya is set to receive a boost with the introduction of threadsol, a range of innovative software solutions for apparel manufacturers. The ThreadSol solutions- intelloBuy and intelloCut work for the buying floor and cutting floor respectively and ensure reduction in fabric expenses at the buying stage as well as cutting off extra garment pieces at the cutting stage.
The overall benefit is automation of the buying and cutting process which ultimately saves hours of manpower in the facilities. These solutions have been adopted by the top manufacturers worldwide like MAS (Sri Lanka), Epic Group (Bangladesh), Raymond (India), PAN Brothers (Indonesia), HS Fashions (China), Sangwoo (Vietnam) etc
ThreadSol’s outlook is to introduce technologically driven products to drive African apparel manufacturing by boosting topline and bottom line for manufacturers and differentiate from the extremely competitive environment for breakthrough profits and improved customer service.
“We at ThreadSol bring up to 80% reduction in planning time to ensure that the manufacturing cost goes down and hence the profits go up by 30-40%”, says Anas Shakil, a senior Partner at the company.
Africa is experiencing an emergence of the industry and the company’s presence at Origin Africa 2018 from 9th September to 11th September at booth #46 establishes its commitment to sustaining its efforts of introducing innovative garment tech solutions for the apparel industry.
With challenges like high electricity prices, limited access to finance, infrastructural obstacles, challenging logistics, and for non-EPZ companies, complex regulations, it is extremely crucial for apparel manufacturers in Kenya to realize the importance of cost saving and increasing their output. In addition, labor skill is another challenge. It is important to understand and implement automation which can provide more efficiency and high yield in the long run.
In these times of ascending costs and descending profit margins, ThreadSol has a crucial role to play in

The solutions we are offering at the expo demonstrates that we are continuously aiming to accomplish our customer’s requirements to aid them in overcoming the challenges of the industry and increase profitability by targeting the biggest expense in manufacturing- fabric”, added Anas Shakil
