Calvin Klein Jeans, Tukatech Develop Forms

Tukatech, a company offering solutions and software for the apparel development process, announced that Calvin Klein Jeans completed a development phase to create Tukatech's custom fit forms for both the CK Jeans and Chaps brands. Calvin Klein Jeans is utilizing TUKAforms (men's, women's and plus-sized) in New York and Hong Kong to streamline international product development. Tukatech reports that Calvin Klein Jeans also will require all of its international vendors to implement TUKAforms in the near future.

"Maintaining our fit across our global supply chain is crucial to reducing our cost and maintaining our fit standards," said Anna-Nee Wong, vice president of technical apparel design for Calvin Klein Jeans. "We chose TUKAforms for their life-like skin, body, bone and muscle replication."

Wong and other company executives from Calvin Klein Jeans recently worked at Tukatech's Los Angeles headquarters to sculpt forms. Wong said ROI studies estimate savings of more than half a million dollars in the first year.

Calvin Klein Jeans, founded in 1978, is operated by Phillips-Van Heusen Corp.

In other Tukatech news, the company has been selected for the "2008 Best of Commerce Award" in the Computers & Accessories category by the U.S. Local Business Association (USLBA), which recognizes outstanding local businesses throughout the country. The USLBA identifies companies that it believes have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local communities and particular business category.
