High Performance and Sustainability,
KISCO Nature Dyes-Introducing Our Next Generation Dyes
On June 17, the ‘KISCO Technical seminar’ was held at the Lotte Legend Hotel Saigon located in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. Over 140 people attended including Dyeing and Lab managers from Korean companies operating in Vietnam as well as local corporations, all of who are major customers of the DBU and OBU of KISCO.
In this seminar we addressed KISCO’s sustainability initiatives, including the introduction of environmentally-friendly dyes and processes under the main theme of “High Performance and Sustainability, KISCO Nature Dyes – Introducing Our Next Generation Dyes”
One of the sessions was focused on the Higg Index. The Higg Index is an apparel and footwear industry self-assessment standard for measuring environmental and social sustainability throughout the supply chain. Launched in 2012, it was developed by the Sustainable Apparel Coalition, of which KISCO is a member, a nonprofit organization founded by a group of fashion companies, the United States Government Environmental Protection Agency, and other nonprofit entities.
The new products introduced by KISCO were perceived by many customers as a good opportunity to solve some of the problems they face, particularly those associated with improving yield and reducing costs. Many customers showed a keen interest in testing the new Nature Dyes.
KISCO Chairman Heung-Joon Kim was an attendee at this seminar, following on from last year, and showed his enthusiasm and pride in KISCO’s dye business through attending the meeting and greeting customers.
In Korea, two domestic seminars were held in Ansan and Yangju on the 14th and 21st of June respectively. These seminars attracted more than 100 people from 50 major customers. The seminars were the local launch of the new Synozol Nature dyes. In response to 2018 color trends we presented exclusive recipes from KISCO and also spent a session on the topic of trouble-shooting common dyeing problems.
KISCO has held regular seminars every year in Korea (Ansan / Yangju) and Vietnam (Ho Chi Minh) to engage with our customers and inform them about KISCO’s proactive response to global environmental regulations. We have also regularly introduced new products and process improvements. Attendees at these seminars were pleased with the range of topics addressed and expressed strong interest in attending additional seminars organized by KISCO.
