AM4U has two transformative and green technology innovations for the fabric and apparel industry,
The combination of the two changes the economics of the industry and allows garment manufacturing to return to North America, at higher profit.
See how the apparel industry is rallying around PAM through the ViMA Alliance
For purchase-activated-manufacturing, PAM, nothing is made until the order is placed and paid for by the customer. This means zero inventory of physical goods, only a virtual-inventory of fabric used to make finished product when ordered.
For demand-manufacturing, inventory is virtual as rolls of unprinted white fabric and a digital design pattern. Dyeing or printing is done only as needed to keep retail supply pipelines flowing to replace consumption, not stocked. Thus, due to short production cycle times, manufacturing is “on-demand.
