Great attention to detail
Right after we get the client’s orders we start off with meticulous planning to provide the best results on schedule. To ensure that all products meet the quality standards, our quality assurance specialist team executes regular checks and reports throughout the production process and all the chemical and physical tests are done at the inhouse laboratories.
Our production facilities, two in Turkey and one in Sri Lanka, enable us an expanded production capacity and quick delivery in about 6 weeks. Long Lead expectations of our clients are met at the same high standards by our liaison office in Sri Lanka. Sun Tekstil and Ekoten are sister companies and part of Sun Grup.
Highest export volume in the Aegean Region
Listed among the top 500 companies in Turkey, Sun Tekstil has consecutively ranked as the biggest Exporter in 2018 and 2019, righteously making it the company with the highest export volume in the Aegean Region of Turkey. Although Sun Tekstil’s strength lies in circular knitwear, we have been producing woven products since 2018 which now accounts for about 10% of our turnover.
On average, Sun Tekstil is capable of manufacturing 3 million pieces per month. 10% of this volume is manufactured in-house at our production units in Torbalı and Manisa. Sub-contractors manufacture the remaining amount which gives the company a flexible and dynamic structure.
The advantage of working with subcontractors is the capability of quickly responding to capacity increase demands which results in meeting customers’ short-lead expectations without delay. Our average delivery lead time periods range between 4 to 6 weeks. Deliveries for repeat orders are as short as 2 to 3 weeks.
Supply Chain Management System
At Sun Tekstil, our aim is to develop a Sustainable Supply Chain Management System in order to react quickly and efficiently to the changing demands of our customers. We have set up a holistic approach to our supplier management system that is proactive, analytical, agile and flexible in response to the business needs.
We shape our supply management strategies according to our values. We believe that working with the right partners is the key to long-term success and we encourage our suppliers to align with our values.
The main pillars of our supply management system are:
Developing new suppliers based on customer needs and market conditions:
Strategic sourcing is the most important part of procurement management which involves analysing, recording and evaluating the basic information of new suppliers whilst also assigning suppliers on a customer basis and forming strategic partnerships.
In order to have a performance based supply chain for constant improvement, we have segmented our supply chain base to meet the standards set.
Developing Holistic Grading System; completing middle and long-term strategies:
We set up the Holistic Grading System for our Suppliers and we score their Maturity Index for Social and Technical Compliances, Technical Competence, Environmental Impact, Operational Success, Corporate Governance level and Sustainable Performance.
In their Operational Success, we monitor production excellence and quality performance with all the data we collect and analyse.
We conduct in person quarterly performance meetings to review the areas scored for their Maturity Index, we then agree action plans where improvement is necessary.
