What we offer

BUILDING YOUR SUPPLY CHAIN.
TOGETHER.

Research & Development

Our Product Development is the basis of OI’s state of the art supply chain. In all areas of R&D, we combine trend and material information from external sources with the know-how of our customers’ target groups. 

Featuring Limited is our Virtual Development Competence Centre supporting this process. Here, we are focusing on 3D design to reduce sample lead time, save resources and reduce negative environmental impact.

Quality Development & Assurance

Quality starts with product development, sampling, and material. In every OI office, experienced technicians respond to the fitting requirements of our customers’ styles. 

We help our customers to improve fabric, trims and accessories, initiate physical and chemical testing with laboratories and work constantly with our vendors and factories on maintaining and improving standards of workmanship. Your product is in expert hands!

Logistics & Warehousing

One of the most important requirements of modern sourcing is the transparent flow of goods and documents, which gives us the option to take corrective action if need be. This is exactly what the IT platform Hermes SCM provides. It covers order and supplier management, freight management, online documents and performance control, to name but a few.

Within the scope of Logistics & Warehousing, we also offer unique Vendor Payment Services. Here we are the middle-man by pre-financing suppliers and providing late payment options to our customers.
