Grupo Kaltex is one of the largest exporters of textiles and apparel in Mexico, with holdings that serve international markets across the US, Canada, Europe and South America.


The group has chosen to adopt Lectra Fashion PLM at Revman International, which sources and provides high-end home linens and bathroom textiles to big-name retailers. It will also be implementing the solution at Kaltex Home in Mexico, which designs and produces for Revman International and selected private-label retail brands.

According to Hebe Schecter, President of Kaltex North America, both companies will be using the platform to better structure and synchronize process across their different design and development teams. This will reduce the time needed to create new products and enhance product quality, giving the company the flexibility and resources it needs to add more brands to its portfolio and pursue international growth.

Industry experience

An industry leader for 90 years, Grupo Kaltex largely attributes its success to its focus on innovation, collaboration and efficiency. "To achieve our goals for future expansion, we needed to find a universal approach to managing our product which would not sacrifice our reputation for quality and service," said Hebe Schecter.

"We chose Lectra because their industry experience and reputation are unmatched. They listened to what we had to say and offered us practical solutions that would let us communicate in real time between different design and development teams, so that we could collaborate more effectively and maintain visibility over a diverse collection of international product lines, across different companies and divisions, on one unified platform."

Priorities and objectives

Lectra experts worked closely with Grupo Kaltex to learn about their business model and identify their strengths and challenges, before developing a PLM roadmap adapted to the company's priorities and objectives.

The plan, which drew on Lectra's extensive knowledge of industry best practices and change-management expertise, was carefully designed to ensure that the solution's implementation was a success among Grupo Kaltex staff, as well as management.

"Grupo Kaltex is a creatively-driven organization, but they also manage a sophisticated manufacturing and engineering operation. They need a partner that understands both sides of their business and can help them speak the same language across their different teams. Our experts come from creative and analytical backgrounds, and love to flex those mental muscles. We couldn't be more excited about this partnership," explained Roy Shurling, Director of Lectra North America.
