Company presentation :

Up-Tex Confection is one of the leading manufacturers of clothes in denim and other cotton fabrics. Since the foundation in 2002 we focus on delivering best quality products and best service. The 1565 persons employed at Up-Tex produce 3.500.000 pieces of clothes each year. Our subsidiary “Kavira SA” which is situated in Sousse / Tunisia has employed approximately 700 employees and is specialised in the production of clothes in tricot fabrics, mainly garments for children. The annual turnover is about 8.000.000 €.

Our success is based on longstanding and close relationships we maintain with our customers. Our clients appreciate our efforts to provide extraordinary service. This includes that we present our customers six jeans collections per year in order

·        to inform about new fabrics on the market (we work closely together
with the largest suppliers of fabrics mainly in Turkey),

·        to show new developments regarding washings and special treatments
(we have our own newly equipped laundry and laboratory, where our engineers constantly develop new methods of treatments and washings)

·        to present new developments on the accessory market (buttons,
rivets…)

At Up-Tex we have a vertically integrated production system from the purchase of fabrics and accessories to the packing and shipment of final products. We are equipped to produce large as well as small orders.

We consider our employees as the most important asset to achieve customer satisfaction. Therefore we take it for granted to provide good working conditions and to comply with all local labour laws and regulations.
