Study Mission to Germany, Switzerland and Turkey
18 – 25 May 2008 (7 days & 7 nights)
Visiting Various Overseas Brassiere Manufacturing Factories and Technology
Enhancing Technology Exchange & Advanced Brassiere Design and
Manufacturing Development in the Lingerie Industry in Europe and the
Nature & Objective:
Lingerie industry has been growing prosperously and the demand from the customers
urges the industry to continuously improve its design and manufacturing technology so
as to drive for excellence to match the ever-changing market.
In order to provide opportunities to local lingerie industry and companies to acquire the
latest information & technology on bra design and manufacturing as well as to explore
the technique of management, quality control and automation adopted by European and
Middle East companies, Hong Kong Productivity Council organizes a study mission to
visit factories and institutes engaged in the design and manufacturing of lingerie. In
this trip, various significant aspects of brassiere manufacturing are covered, e.g. bra
design, molding technology and manufacturing automation. Bra design is substantial to
brand product development while innovative molding technology is the key to signature
types of bras like sewfree bra, seamless bra and one-piece bra. Automation has been a
global trend in manufacturing as it reduces the labour cost and, on the other hand,
enhances the consistency in product quality.
