INH Quality Management

The clothing industry these days stands before many challenges. Alongside general demands for high productivity, maximum occupational safety and various environmental considerations play a major role. Moreover, sewing businesses are increasingly subject to complying with strict regulations – set by brand owners and retailers – regarding the handling of sewing machine needles. They apply in particular to broken and damaged needles.

As a needle supplier who provides its customers with comprehensive support, Groz-Beckert has developed the INH Quality Management. The experience gained from scores of production plants and brand owners has resulted in a standardized process which governs the handling of sewing machine needles within the production process.

Current situation of the clothing industry

In addition to quality demands, issues such as sustainability, occupational and product safety, and also productivity play an important role in the clothing industry nowadays.

Brand owners and sewing businesses consistently try to reduce their CO2 footprint and to use – wherever possible – recyclable materials.

Moreover, employees themselves take on a leading role. Safe working conditions linked to an ergonomic workplace and continuing education of employees stand front and center.

Sewing businesses furthermore face the additional challenge of achieving high output with little scrap and short idle times. Cost pressure is rising.

Besides all this, the additional regulations stipulated by customers and brand owners must be complied with.
