Our studies have shown that style changes can take production lines 3 working days to recover back to there normal efficiency and productivity rates. So if a line has to change styles too many times this can have a massive impact on the profitability of a factory.

Take for example our £5 jean. The volumes that we sell at Asda mean that we run our production lines continuously all year round.

Economies of scale and long production runs allow our suppliers to invest in some of the latest technologies in the textile industry and by automating our production lines we can offer our customer consistent quality at great prices.

The supplier benefits because the line efficiency increases, they don’t have to stop the line to change styles and more importantly the skill levels of the operator increase.

Volume production is a fantastic opportunity to unlock unbeatable quality.
