Gelmart has invested heavily in supply chain resources, by recently opening up production facilities in China and the Philippines. Through careful and on-going attention to procurement, social responsibility, manufacturing, oversight, QA, and cost management, along with extensive and direct relationships with raw material suppliers, we proudly deliver programs that offer the most value, design, and potential in the marketplace.
Achieving our target prices for such successful program requires close alignment with our raw material suppliers and our own factories. Our overseas office in China is staffed with more than 50 employees, all with years of experience in development and procurement. Gelmart’s China team is committed to close monitoring and inspection both in-line and final production to ensure excellent execution of each and every style. Through our vertical supply chain and our experienced staff, we are adept at handling high innovation and high fashion.
Gelmart strives to be at the forefront of technological innovation, and trend. The design team travels overseas on a regular basis to work face-to-face with suppliers of raw materials and with our sample room technicians. We invest deeply in research and development to consistently stay ahead of the ever-evolving fashion world. Gelmart International’s in-house design and merchandising team, led by industry veteran Eve Bastug who has over 40 years of experience, has its pulse on trends, both domestically and internationally, attending the important industry trade shows and consulting leading trend services. Gelmart tailors each assortment, taking into consideration white space opportunities, target consumer, and selling trends.
