What Clients say about us
"Responsibility for ongoing development There is a lot of talk about responsibility in the supply chain. “But we are actively involved in ensuring precisely this on a daily basis,” stressed Dirk Baykal, CSR coordinator at CWS-boco. “We work on-site with our suppliers around the world and help them to develop further if necessary.” After all, a sustainable supply chain is much more than just a code of conduct. “Although we do have such a code in place and compliance with it is checked by external auditors, we do not leave our suppliers to implement this on their own,” explained Mr Baykal. Many partners are not always aware of the requirements which result from this code. Mr Baykal explained CWS-boco’s role as follows: “Should a partner fail an audit, we work closely together with this partner. We draw up action plans together and help to implement these with the aim of ensuring that the partner passes the next audit.” Our partner AMA-Dress in the Albanian town of Berat is a good example of this successful approach"− CWS-boco.

AMA-Dress AMA-Dress has been sewing workwear for boco since 2012. All the necessary components such as materials, buttons and zips are supplied.

A joint action plan was drawn up into which AMADress invested significant time and energy. And the hard work paid off: Just one year later all the planned measures had been implemented and the follow-up audit in 2014 was passed with flying colours. AMADress now has an electronic system for timekeeping. An emergency plan has been developed and checked by the local authorities. Moreover, the operation has improved communication between management and staff and appointed an employee who is responsible for ensuring adherence the code. “We are proud of this successful cooperation and the excellent progress AMA-Dress has made,” "
