Benefits and services

Foundations

To furnish the best service to our clients, MACOSA is completely computerized in the Microsoft Windows 7 Server network and uses an internet guaranteed high-speed connection.

MACOSA also uses GESCOM's production management network software (ERP) that traces products with bar codes and uses software for operational ranges based on standard times (BIT - MTMI) from the same supplier.

This software lets clients follow the evolution of our training plan, a key part of our company responsibility (RSE).

Supplies are verified for quantity and quality as they are received.

Any lack or excess in supplies or materials delivered or any quality or quantity problems will systematically be communicated to the client.

MACOSA's mechanical service is well-known for its technical skills and working environment.

  • Manufacturing reorders
  • Manufacturing press models
  • Special manufacturing for fashion shows
  • Repairing products after their return from offshore manufacturers to ensure their quality​
Organized in 6 groups of 10 seamstresses working with a team leader and coordinated by a supervisor, the multi-skilled production team is capable of manufacturing in small quantities and assuring an irreprochable quality.

Relying on a large, diverse set of machines, the production team is totally invested in adapting itself to each series' size and complexity to obtain client satisfaction by respecting delivery dates and quality. A modular work schedule has been negotiated with the staff to best serve our clients in extremely busy periods.

We respect the confidentiality of our clients' creations. During the collection's manufacturing phase, clients can only visit their own manufacturing chain. Potential clients are not allowed to visit the workroom during this crucial period.

Motivation, know-how, innovation, quality, availability, reactivity are the production team's key words.
