Established in 2010, The Factory based in London produces an average of 15,000 garments a week for multinationals such as ASOS, Tesco F&F and N Brown
The Factory is the only UK company that has a leading status in the ethical and technical Fast Forward audit and is also SMETA audited. The core production centres on ladieswear soft separates in both jersey and woven being manufactured by a team of highly experienced machinists that are from 12 different countries. A selection of semi-tailored garments is also produced.
The factory is focused on fast-track quality fashion producing bulk production, from idea concept to delivery, using stock cloth, within a two – three week time frame using an internal system called Galaxius. The Galaxius Management Information System shows complete transparency on who made what and when providing data on real time standard minutes and earnings. This provides FEL with constant improvements in efficiencies for optimum quality production.
In November 2020 Fashion-Enter opened a second factory in Wales Powys, following the sad demise of the Laura Ashley Texplan – over 75 experienced Welsh machinists have now been employed allowing FEL to supply a total of 40,000 garments a week.
The Factory also undertakes CPPD workshops enabling retailers to understand how an ethical factory operates and highlights how to spot dirty practices, unethical processes and open costings. Many retailers and FE/HE institutions have undertaken these seminars and excellent feedback has been received.
