American & Efird Aligns with CGS to Streamline Productivity


MOUNT HOLLY, N.C.—American & Efird (A&E) strategically aligns with Computer Generated Solutions (CGS) to improve productivity. CGS provides business applications, enterprise learning, and outsourcing services for manufacturing operations. Through the alignment, A&E subsidiary A&E Lanka utilizes CGS’ technology in its facility.

“Sri Lanka’s apparel manufacturing facilities are among the most sophisticated in the world,” says Les Miller, CEO of A&E. “These world-class operators have the ability to further enhance production efficiency through the use of A&E’s premium sewing thread and CGS’s real-time technology.”         

A&E says it plans to use BlueCherry, CGS’ shop management system, at the Southeast Asia location. The system automates the collection and reporting of production and provides the company with real-time shop control.

“We are delighted A&E is committed to the marketplace in the advancement of improved manufacturing operations and productivity,” states Paul Magel, president of business applications and technology outsourcing division at CGS. “CGS is looking forward to building a strong relationship with A&E in the Sri Lanka market.”

Both companies officially announced the agreement at a conference earlier this month in the Sri Lankan capital city of Colombo. Miller, Magel, and A&E Lanka stakeholders attended the event.
