Fimex | Capacity and Order Processing
We produce over 40 million pairs of socks / yr for the UK, US and Australian market.
Our own facility in Turkey covers a third of this capacity. We have 60 of the latest Italian knitting machines capable of producing Men’s, Ladies and Children’s socks using a variety of needle sizes.
In order to cover the huge variety of styles and knitting gauges needed, we also have a selection of tried and tested partner factories in Turkey, China and Pakistan.
This allows us to provide you with a range options to best suite your individual requirements. For example some customers prefer Turkey for quick turnaround, others prefer the Fareast for price.
We do not carry stock. All our orders are made specifically to the customers specification and requirements. We can either work from a design brief supplied from you the customer, or we can send you CADs to choose from from our design data base which currently has 40,000 designs stored on it.
Once CADs are chosen, we can sample up your designs, work on packaging options for you and then quote to you an ex works price in either US $, or £ taking into account the quantity you wish to buy.
Sampling can take between 2 – 3 weeks depending on demand.
From approved samples, production time is 8-12 weeks depending on the style, quantity and the time of year production is booked.
Payment terms are negotiable but usually work on 30% deposit at confirmation of order and 70% balance at shipment.
Minimum order quantities vary depending on style but are usually 2,000 pairs / design and colour for cotton socks and hand knits and 5,000 pairs / design and colour for cosy socks, gift items and childrens tights.
