Is relocation a realistic option ?
A talk with Sébastien Breteau, C.E.O. of the QIMA company specialized in industrial audits.
“Relocation is still an epiphenomenon, we don’t see it happening in the fashion retail sector for a number of reasons. Firstly, because of labor costs : fashion is based on manual manufacturing processes.
Indeed, a large-scale automation is not possible when the majority of the staff is working with sewing machines. Manufacturing capacity is the other reason.
