If you think back to the early days of tailoring, there was always a one on one connection between a tailor and a customer. Then we industrialised everything and became more detached from the brand and the product. Today’s technology brings incredible opportunities to bring that connection back, and that is Joachim Hensch’s mission with his Hugo Boss factory in Izmir: creating a big, smart tailor shop allowing for mass customisation.

BUT…turning an existing, successful plant into a smart factory is not easy and it’s Joachim’s ample amounts of curiosity, persistence and boldness that allowed him to make it happen.

We are proud to have had an influence on Joachim’s journey by making him realise it’s not about buying devices but building a second, digital ecosystem.

Watch the latest episode of The Boardroom featuring Managing Director of Hugo Boss Izmir Joachim Hensch – creating a tailored production process, one thread at a time.
