digital capabilities are a huge asset when it comes to
process-optimisation and we use machine learning and
artificial intelligence to measure, optimise and streamline
the things we do. As part of our ‘factory of the future’
roadmap we are enhancing manufacturing automation, with a
state-of-the-art pilot in one of our facilities in China. We
create processes such as our global Colour Lab network and
Coats Colour Express, the world’s fastest, most
colour-accurate sampling facility for industrial sewing

We frequently review our processes to reduce waste working collaboratively with our partners to find sustainable solutions. We create new ways of manufacturing and find new blends of materials, taking us a step further towards true sustainability.

valuable asset. Curious by nature. Constantly striving to
innovate and look beyond the scope of our industry. They are
our problem solvers, our innovators, and we want them to
perform at their best. This requires us to not only train
and facilitate them, but they need to have the space and
time it takes to be creative. That’s why at Coats, we have
dedicated teams who only focus on finding and solving the
right customer problems.
