Research & Development Center in Guangdong China
This is the key to our research and development efforts. We are investing in automation robots and 3D printing technologies. According to the needs of our customers, we can create:
3D Drawings in 1 week
3D printed samples 1 week after drawings are approved
Production quality samples in just three weeks.
- Rubber Notches
Creating additional options for rubber arm notches for both C-beam and I-beam models to eliminate hanger impressions on garments and ensure garments do not slip off the hangers.
- Slimmer Designs
Slimmer designs, while still performing in compliance with industry standards, will improve rack space, decrease box dimensions, and streamline the supply chain process and drive down transportation costs.
- Sliding Clip Bottoms
Bottom hangers with sliding clips will accommodate garments with various size waist bands vs. using the traditional fixed pinch grip models will allow greater floor presentation flexibility and easier rehanging.
- Raw Material
Advanced raw material compounds will enable larger amounts of recycled plastic into hanger production to reduce organizational carbon footprint and improve waste management.
- Collapsible Hook
Multiple models developed in both wire hook and plastic hook. Reduces box dimensions to reduce the high cost of emergency air shipments.
