LECTRA: Grupo Kaltex chooses Lectra Fashion PLM

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Grupo Kaltex chooses Lectra Fashion PLM

Mexico-based home textile and apparel group to implement Lectra's product
lifecycle management solution

Paris, September 29, 2015 -
Lectra, the world leader in integrated technology solutions dedicated to
industries using soft materials-fabrics, leather, technical textiles and
composite materials-is pleased to announce that Grupo Kaltex has selected
Lectra Fashion PLM to help them connect design and product development teams
at their US subsidiary Revman International and their Mexican manufacturing
division Kaltex Home, in an effort to streamline process and promote a more
collaborative work environment.

Grupo Kaltex is one of the largest exporters of textiles and apparel in
Mexico, with holdings that serve international markets across the US, Canada,
Europe and South America. The group has chosen to adopt Lectra Fashion PLM at
Revman International, which sources and provides high-end home linens and
bathroom textiles to big-name retailers. It will also be implementing the
solution at Kaltex Home in Mexico, which designs and produces for Revman
International and selected private-label retail brands. According to Hebe
Schecter, President of Kaltex North America, both companies will be using the
platform to better structure and synchronize process across their different
design and development teams. This will reduce the time needed to create new
products and enhance product quality, giving the company the flexibility and
resources it needs to add more brands to its portfolio and pursue
international growth.

An industry leader for 90 years, Grupo Kaltex largely attributes its success
to its focus on innovation, collaboration and efficiency. Lectra Fashion PLM
fit in perfectly with their approach to business.

"To achieve our goals for future expansion, we needed to find a universal
approach to managing our product which would not sacrifice our reputation for
quality and service," says Hebe Schecter. "We chose Lectra because their
industry experience and reputation are unmatched. They listened to what we
had to say and offered us practical solutions that would let us communicate
in real time between different design and development teams, so that we could
collaborate more effectively and maintain visibility over a diverse
collection of international product lines, across different companies and
divisions, on one unified platform."

Lectra experts worked closely with Grupo Kaltex to learn about their business
model and identify their strengths and challenges, before developing a PLM
roadmap adapted to the company's priorities and objectives. The plan, which
drew on Lectra's extensive knowledge of industry best practices and
change-management expertise, was carefully designed to ensure that the
solution's implementation was a success among Grupo Kaltex staff, as well as
management.

"Grupo Kaltex is a creatively-driven organization, but they also manage a
sophisticated manufacturing and engineering operation. They need a partner
that understands both sides of their business and can help them speak the
same language across their different teams. Our experts come from creative
and analytical backgrounds, and love to flex those mental muscles. We
couldn't be more excited about this partnership," says Roy Shurling, Director
of Lectra North America.
