Triumph has achieved significant growth since it was founded in 1886 as a little corset factory in Germany. Today, the company is present in 120 countries with its core brands, Triumph® and sloggi®, and had 2014 revenues of 1.437 billion euros. As a successful global manufacturer of lingerie, underwear, sleepwear and swimwear, Triumph is continually looking to improve its ability to maximise innovation while simultaneously managing the inherent complexity and scale of their operation.
As a global brand manufacturer, the structure at Triumph is very complex and vast. With three innovation centers, four design centers, five production centers and 3rd party sourcing all spread across Germany, Austria, Hong Kong and Japan, different processes were being used across the board, and information stored in scattered local lists.
Triumph decided that they needed a business enabling technology that would bring these factions under one umbrella, and turned to PLM.
Triumph is going through a business transformation and PLM is one part of it. We know we can be much smarter in developing our products and bringing them to market faster through a global PLM system.
