With 350 years of experience in yarns and garments, Moririn has spun age-old knowledge into key business intelligence today. The international textile manufacturing company has evolved from a yarn merchant centuries ago to become a solid bellwether in the textile industry with an unparallelled supply chain management system. From material sourcing and planning through to production and sales, Moririn expertly manages the seamless integration of its business fields, making it a leader in Japan and in various markets worldwide.

Moririn’s supply chain model ensures advantageous market positions for its clients in the areas of cost, quality and delivery time. Top clothing brands known for their innovative and durable fabrics, such as Diadora and Goldwin, trust Moririn for its technical expertise, high quality and reliable production standards.

“Moririn is focused on producing more delicate and elegant textiles,” says chairman and CEO Katsuhiko Mori. “We have a strong level of engineering and technical know-how to develop many sophisticated products.”

For the past two decades, Moririn has been working with specialised spinners, textile makers and dyeing factories in developing new yarns. It has also collaborated with leading man-made fibre producer Lenzing to strengthen its textile chain that includes the sale of Tencel and Modal fabrics.

With a passion for eco-friendly materials, Moririn aims to cultivate more fruitful collaborations with locally linked sales partners in Asia to develop its apparel and sewing thread networks in the region. Apart from managing its state-of-the-art facilities in Japan and China, Moririn has established an automotive fabric factory in Thailand to support its markets overseas.

“We have a direct supply chain to China, but we also see Bangkok as a key station for business development,” Mori says. “We are working to shift to Southeast Asia, with Thailand as a primary destination. Our main energy will be poured into development in Asia.”
