Nobody Denim raises production expectations 

For the last 20 years, Nobody Denim has been self reliant in every stage of production with everything from design right through to distribution occuring under the one roof. As the brand grew in global popularity, the ‘old ways of doing things’ were creating serious risks in the company’s ability to fulfill orders on time.

Knowing that the move into automated cutting would be a huge culture shift, the Pathfinder approach was to quickly demonstrate the downstream benefits. Savings in reduced lead times, reduced cutting times and increased cutting efficiency has enabled the company to reinvest funds that would have been lost in fabric under-utilisation into other areas of the business.

“The savings to the business have been great! And what I really like about it was that Pathfinder worked with me to get it right.”

John Condilis, Director Nobody, Denim Nobody Denim
