Description

Investing in high technology
Union 3 Fashion Ltd. was established in Thessaloniki in 1985 by V. Christianopoulos, N. Papathanasiou
and Th. Papas, all graduates of Thessaloniki’s Business School. Union 3 Fashion
specializes in the design and manufacture of ready-to-wear women garments for all ages. The
production is based on customer designs, as well as on the company’s own collection which is
renewed with many samples every month.
Union 3 Fashion is a vertical unit with its headquarters based in Thessaloniki, Greece’s second
largest city, on a 6,000-sqm privately-owned space. The knitting department, as well as the design
and sampling sections are located at the Greek premises. In an effort to maintain prices at
a highly competitive level, the firm’s main production has been moved to Bitola, Former Yugoslav
Republic of Macedonia (FYROM) since 2001. The two privately-owned production centers
measure a floor space of some 6,000 sqm and employ a staff 600 in the cutting, sewing, trimming,
ironing, packing and other departments. Moreover, in order to increase its production
flexibility, the company has two sub-contractors, both located in the southern part of FYROM,
close to the border with Greece, where some 200 persons are employed. On the whole, the
production capacity of the company is 3 to 4 million units annual, with typical sales amounting
between 12-15 million euros. Union 3 Fashion exports to several European countries, including
Germany, France, Netherlands and UK. The company has established partnerships with many
distinguished foreign companies and is considered as one of the most prominent and modern
production and export clothing factories.
Union 3 Fashion uses contemporary technology at all production stages in order to achieve
the best quality standards, in addition to reasonable prices. The company’s cutting department
is equipped with the Lectra system, and its designing department with the Investronica,
while the company has also invested in modern sewing machines for several uses in order to
meet client specifications. For this reason, the company is also equipped with automatic motif
strass machines and printers, as well as with embroidery and other decoration machines. Inhouse
knitting in Greece is very important for the company’s success since it has invested in
machinery that can guarantee extra fine fabric quality and flexibility. Its 30 cylindrical knitting
machines can produce several fabric types, such as single-jersey with and without elastane, rib
and interlock of all types, as well as full Jacquards and electronic stripe-rapport fabrics.
Notably, the production time from order to delivery varies from 3 to 4 weeks, while for some
NOS (Never Out of Stock) products that time can be less than a week. Punctuality in the execution
of the orders and fast flexible services are among the key elements for the firm’s sustainable
growth. In order to expand and develop its knitting department, Union 3 Fashion has
decided to invest in new, fully electronic circular knitting machines from Monarch, UK. The new
machines can produce a wide range of fabrics with large jacquard patterns, transfer feeds and
stripes, in both single and double jersey knit.
The clothing company in 2014 posted a marginal drop in sales to 12.39 million euros, compared
to 12.73 million euros a year earlier. However, net profit rose to 413,000 euros against
374,000 euros year-on-year.
