Eclat Textile Co. Ltd.

Company Background

Eclat Textile is a Taiwanese apparel maker producing clothing and fibers for client companies.

Eclat was established in 1977 by Huang Chen-hai, the current chairman. Headquartered in New Taipei City, it went public locally in 2001 and has about 9,000 workers on its payroll. The company has plants in China, Vietnam and Cambodia.

In 1983, Eclat developed a flexible knit fabric and launched commercial production. It makes products for such big global names as Nike, Adidas, Lululemon Athletica and Under Armour. While its primary focus is clothing for jogging and yoga, Eclat is expanding its lineup to include apparel for golf, tennis, rugby and other sports.

Eclat is known for its ability to understand its clients' needs and promptly customize the products accordingly. It also has a reputation for developing high-quality fabrics. These strengths have enabled it to avoid being dragged into cost-cutting competition.

Supported by a rapidly expanding customer base, Eclat chalked up group sales of more than 10 billion New Taiwan dollars ($306 million) for the first time in 2011. By 2014, the figure had doubled to NT$20.8 billion.

Business Summary

Eclat Textile Co., Ltd. engages in the manufacture and sales of elastic knit fabrics and apparel. It offers sportswear including workout and athletic wear; seamless wear; and lightweight, waterproof, and stretchable clothes. The company was founded by Chen Hai Hung, Hsien Chin Tsai, and Feng Chen Wang on November 28, 1977 and is headquartered in New Taipei, Taiwan.
