Bespoke Manufacturing Company Announces Apparel Plant In Phoenix
The 50,000-square-foot facility will lead to the creation of over 250 jobs
PHOENIX, AZ (April 26, 2022) – Bespoke Manufacturing Company (BMC) announced today that it is opening a new state-of-the-art plant in Phoenix, Arizona. BMC is a tech-enabled print, cut & sew operation specializing in one-off, on-demand garments and home fashion products. The manufacturing facility is expected to be operational by June 2022, bringing over 250 jobs.
BMC’s 50,000 square-foot facility incorporates Kornit’s newest Presto S Max digital printer. The printer feeds into multiple Gerber Z1 digital cutters then directly into 120 of Juki’s newest electronic sewers using a fleet of Fetch Robotics AMRs (Autonomous Mobile Robots). The plant has a capacity of over five dresses per minute.
“We chose to build our first plant in the heart of Phoenix because of the talented sewers the city has to offer from around the world,” said J. Kirby Best, Founder of BMC. “Quality is of the utmost importance. We have hired first-rate tailors and sewers who are eager to show that the United States is a competitive force in apparel manufacturing.”
BMC is an ideal manufacturing solution for any size apparel brand that strives to reshape its supply chain. Brands can offer personalized products on-demand thanks to fast turnaround times and direct-to-consumer shipping options.
“Arizona is quickly becoming a fashion innovation hotbed, with designers, manufacturers and distributors of all sizes making an impact,” said Sandra Watson, President and CEO of the Arizona Commerce Authority. “BMC’s state-of-the-art facility brings another high-tech innovator to our state, and we are proud to welcome their expansion.”
"With talented fabric and consumer-product innovators, Greater Phoenix continues to attract technology-focused companies and manufacturers," said Chris Camacho, President and CEO of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council. "We're excited to welcome BMC as the latest high-tech manufacturer choosing to expand in the region and look forward to being a partner in their continued growth and success."
