Apparel Component Mnfrs

Market research in South Africa in the late 1990′s indicated a requirement for a flexible quick turnaround delivery of consistent quality elastic products for the local foundation garment manufacturing industry. Shortly thereafter the company was established and new state of the art European manufacturing equipment was commissioned. Manufacturing facilities are located in Cape Town, South Africa. Sales Agents are located in all the main centres of South Africa.

ACM has become a significant supplier in South Africa of a comprehensive range of elastic and rigid narrow fabrics and other components suitable for the lingerie, foundation garment and apparel manufacturing industry. Our products are supplied to all major South African garment manufacturers and are therefore indirectly supplied to all the major retail chain stores including Woolworths, Edgars, Foschini, MR Price and others.

Raw materials are processed in a vertical operation from in house processing facilities which include elastomeric covering, warping, weaving, knitting, continuous and pressure dyeing to final packaging.

Wherever feasible, bespoke products to meet individual customer needs can be supplied. Our policy is to continuously work towards delivering accurate and flexible turnaround times backed by competitive high quality products dyed to customer requirements.
