Despite the fact that the company had 62 CAD workstations from other companies, they were still employing 42 manual pattern makers. However, after partnering with Tukatech to engineer the pattern room, Star Garments was able to streamline their processes and produce better fitting products.

“The Tukatech engineers were able to re-engineer our process and work-flow, consolidate our sample rooms, and train our personnel to engineer our patterns,” commented A. Sukumaran, Managing Director of Star Group. “All of these changes resulted in significant improvements including a fabric savings of 2%, better cutting quality, increased productivity of the installed cutters, and a better end product overall.”

“We know the management was skeptical of our claims regarding projected savings and results,” said Ram Sareen, CEO-Founder TUKAgroup. “However, through this partnership we have been able to achieve tremendous results for our client.”
