• To grow their share in Pearlwear (which is a premium company with an internationally recognized brand name with manufacturing plants in Europe and Southeast Asia and has growing sales and capacity) from the current 14% (i.e. £4.2 million).
• To ensure conformance to quality with competitive pricing
• Increase sales from ‘sole supplier’ fabrics by 10% from current £2.7 million
• Continue to develop sound customer relationship
• To carefully target some fabrics for which Pearlwear currently has only one supplier and get their technical people working closely with Pearlwear to convince them that they have the technical know-how. This will improve their chances of becoming a 2nd supplier by giving Pearlwear the added attraction of gaining more insurance on obtaining short delivery lead times
• Allocating a special team in the technical department to help gain 7% of the sales that go solely to one of its competitors
• To improve their communications at all levels and ensure fast reliable response to orders
• Targeting about 50% of the revenue that goes to new fabrics in development (£1.2 million for next year and the value can grow substantially). Done by developing good looking and high performance fabric with designers sympathetic towards Fabritex working with them.
