26 Sep SUPRA Footwear Opens New Facility in China
ONE Distribution, the manufacturer of SUPRA Footwear, has opened a new footwear development facility in Dongguan, China known as ONE Distribution Resources (ODR). The 3,000 square foot, state-of-the-art office facility is staffed by a dedicated team that is on the ground in China working directly with the factories. The office is headed by SUPRA Vice President of Footwear, Udi Shiloah.
“The ODR team is looking forward to overseeing every aspect of the sourcing and development of our footwear,” said Udi, “and ensuring the highest possible quality and efficiency. In addition, we have aligned ourselves with the world’s leading suppliers who apply best practices to their operations while complying with today’s standards. ODR will supply the necessary tools and technological capabilities to our leading design team so that we may continue to drive the most exciting and innovative products to market.”
The new ODR facility ultimately allows SUPRA the ability to better control sourcing and their supply chain, thus producing higher quality products at a better value. Additionally, SUPRA has staffed ODR with a scheduling and logistics division that will ensure that SUPRA products are getting to its offices and distributors around the world in the most efficient and timely manner possible.
“The opening of ODR is one of the most significant events in SUPRA history,” said ONE Distribution CEO, Scott Bailey. “We have created a great working environment for our very experienced and highly skilled team. Our goal is to build great product and we will accomplish this by forging direct and solid relationships with the best vendors and factories in Asia.”
