Build the Best Product

A sewing floor operates well with a strong supporting team. Our project managers, floor engineers, mechanics and extremely talented ‘floor boy’, keep the sewing operation moving efficiently.

Operators at Merrow Manufacturing perform in a piece work system, with minutes per operation tracked by floor engineers. Quality inspection stations are setup incrementally throughout production to detect issues early on. Trimming and inspection departments are responsible for detailed unit review before packaging.

We offer full package services, and are capable of delivering individually packaged, tagged, labeled and bar-coded product if required.
