Our design development centre in China presents us with inspirational knit concepts and fabric developments with a fully dedicated team to support us with your sourcing requests.
We have a renowned reputation for quality due to our large experienced team of fabric, yarn and garment technologists. Our inspection centre has specially equipped facilities for needle detection and our suppliers are fully certified.
Our internal quality controllers conduct inline, midline and final inspections in accordance with A.Q.L 1.0 or as per your specific requirements. GTHS also collaborate with SGS and ITS for third party inspections and testing.
GTHS ensure that directly controlled accredited suppliers are used; with the right facilities that are best suited for each style and client. We maintain complete control over quality and cost for every style that goes into production.
Sales, price negotiation and order follow up is carried out directly with our accomplished teams in China. This direct communication shortens and simplifies the approval process which allows us to offer faster lead times.
This process is also supported by the sales team in London when required.
GTHS have an extensive sample development team, with over 200 people based at our head office in China.
Having our own sampling facilities allows us to prioritise and react quickly to all sampling requests without having to rely on suppliers.
