Global ingredient manufacturer Kemin Industries has announced that Garmon Chemicals (Garmon), Kemin’s textile auxiliaries business unit and the chemical solutions brand for the denim and fashion industry, is opening its fashion laboratory, Garmon Studio, in Jiangmen, Guangdong Province, China.
Garmon Studio China is the first applications laboratory that Kemin Textile Auxiliaries has opened outside of San Marino – a milestone with important implications for the company.
The biggest benefit of opening its first international Garmon Studio in China is that Kemin Textile Auxiliaries is now closer to local customers – both denim mills and laundries – broadening the opportunity for its technicians to work with a group of companies that previously faced language barriers or travel restrictions. With Garmon Studio China, Kemin Textile Auxiliaries will also be able to create local collections that better match domestic styles and trends.
The second major advantage of the new Garmon Studio’s location is that it provides Kemin Textile Auxiliaries technicians in China the ability to sharpen their skills, giving them the equipment, space and time needed to perform tests and experiments to get the most out of Garmon’s products. The fashion laboratory will be equipped with the most modern equipment available, including Kemin Textile Auxiliaries’ revolutionary Smart Foam system that reduces water consumption by up to 80 percent.
