Ever-Rite Talks Footwear Sourcing in Vietnam

Missed Sourcing Journal’s Virtual Sourcing Summit? It's not too late to view all keynotes and panels from the two days. Watch on demand now.

Vietnam is quickly becoming a new hotbed of sourcing for the footwear industry, coming with its own unique set of advantages and challenges compared to neighboring China.

Ever-Rite is just one company that moved all of their factories from China to Vietnam, reflecting a growing trend industry-wide. Ever-Rite Factory Group Factory Manager Oliver Ng said a large part of the move came down to the workers.

“In Vietnam we are able to maintain workers for a longer time, so we are able to get more skilled workers,” he said. “Of course the inflation rate is a little high, but because of the base wage is much lower Vietnam is still very competitive.”
