Oritain is proud to announce a multi-year partnership with textile and apparel manufacturer Ramatex Group. The partnership will see Oritain provide forensic scientific testing of Ramatex’s yarn and fabric products across their mills in Malaysia and Vietnam.

Ramatex is a major global provider of textile and apparel manufacturing for many leading international apparel brands. Headquartered in Singapore, the company employs over 30,000 people across facilities in Malaysia, China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, and Jordan.

“This is an exciting opportunity for both Oritain and Ramatex,” believes Oritain CEO, Grant Cochrane. “Ramatex have built a reputation for innovative manufacturing in their spinning and fabric mills, and we see tremendous potential to support their continued growth. Both companies share a commitment to innovation and integrity that I’m sure will foster a rewarding partnership.”

An extensive program of forensic isotopic testing will be undertaken by Oritain, providing 360˚ verification across yarn and finished fabric. The result of this testing program will see Ramatex products awarded ‘Verified Yarn’ or 'Verified Fabric' status, providing assurance to clients and end consumers of product authenticity and integrity.

“Ramatex has established a strong partnership with our customers through our vertically integrated value chain, and we are committed to leading the industry in responsible and sustainable manufacturing,” said Ramatex Executive Chairman, Mr Ma. “Becoming a fully Verified Partner with Oritain is instrumental for Ramatex to achieve this.”

Proving the authenticity of their products and integrity of their supply chains reflects the emphasis Ramatex has placed on establishing strategies and processes which reduce risks and negative impact on society and the environment.

“At Ramatex we pride ourselves on our dedication to the highest standards of product development and manufacturing,” said Ramatex Strategy Director, Keith Ma. “The partnership with Oritain will help us take this to the next level by providing essential testing and validation of the integrity of our products. We can then pass this assurance on to our clients and the broader fashion and apparel market.”

In addition to sample testing, Oritain will provide regulatory advice to Ramatex in support of its discussions with US Customs and Border Protection and other regulators.
