H&M Sourcing Child-Picked Uzbek Cotton, Claims Anti-Slavery Group

H&M Sourcing Child-Picked Uzbek Cotton, Claims Anti-Slavery Group | Supply Chain China | Scoop.it

H&M may have pledged not to “knowingly” use Uzbek cotton in its clothes, but labor-rights campaigners say the Swedish apparel giant isn’t doing enough to support an end to state-sponsored child labor in the Central Asian nation.

Because Uzbekistan is one of the world’s leading exporters of the fiber, much of which winds up in Bangladesh and China, few fashion labels can pinpoint the origins of their wares.

But H&M refuses to take steps to stop companies in its supply chain from profiting from child labor, according to London-based 
Anti-Slavery International. Worse, the retailer is reportedly buying products from Daewoo, a South Korean company that “explicitly deals” in Uzbek cotton.

China's Commercial Aircraft Industry: Not So Fast - Analysis

China's Commercial Aircraft Industry: Not So Fast - Analysis | Supply Chain China | Scoop.it

DOSID's curator insight, February 5, 2013 1:03 AM

"NO ONE can ever accuse China of thinking small. When it decided to enter into commercial aircraft manufacturing, it knew that it was going up against one of the world’s greatest duopolies: the Boeing-Airbus stranglehold on the medium-to-large jetliner business. These two companies produce nearly every 100-seat-and-above passenger plane flown by nearly every airline in the world."

BorgWarners New Plant in China

BorgWarner Inc. (BWA Analyst Report) has recently announced the opening of a production plant at the Ningbo campus, China. The new plant is expected to cater to the rising demand for fuel-efficient systems and technologies in the rapidly growing Chinese automotive market.

Together with the new plant, BorgWarner also inaugurated the Engineering Center at Ningbo, which will be offering research and development, applications engineering and management support. The recent expansion of operations will strengthen BorgWarner’s position as a leading supplier of advanced powertrain solutions in the rapidly growing Asian markets.

The new plant encompasses 177,000 square feet of space. Morse TEC silent chains, roller chains, VCT technologies and engine timing systems will be produced in the plant for the major Chinese joint ventures and domestic vehicle manufacturers. This will also support the production and launch of about 50 programs by the company.

The Ningbo Engineering Center, spanning across 107,000 square feet, will expand the global network of technical centers and improve the company’s capability in introducing new technologies.

BorgWarner started its operation in Shanghai in 1993. It opened the campus at Ningbo in 2006 and expanded the campus later in 2008 with local production of fans and fan drives, which will reduce energy costs by 30% to 60%. The company plans further expansion in the Chinese market with its technologies to improve fuel efficiency, reduce emissions and boost vehicle performance. 

BorgWarner is a leading manufacturer of powertrain products for the world's major automakers. The company operates in 57 locations in 19 countries, providing products that are capable of improving vehicle performance and stability along with fuel efficiency and emission levels.

These products are manufactured and sold worldwide, primarily to original equipment manufacturers of passenger cars, SUVs, trucks and commercial transportation products. The company’s largest customers include Volkswagen AG (VLKAY), Ford Motor Co. (F -Analyst Report), Toyota Motor Corp. (TM Analyst Report), and Honda Motor Co. (HMC -Analyst Report).
