TAU is a New York and Hong Kong-based investment firm with deep sector expertise in the global apparel and textile value chain.
TAU’s main investment program focuses on growth equity supply chain investments, particularly in the high-growth, high technology apparel manufacturing segments in Southeast Asia.
As online channels and digitally native vertical brands (DNVBs) increasingly dominate the market, traditional brands and retailers are being forced to adopt their business models. Underpinning this changing landscape is the need for the next generation of suppliers which can partner with brands and retailers to meet their requirements on cost, quality, speed, capabilities, sustainability, and transparency.
TAU has developed a proprietary investment platform for building vertically-integrated “manufacturers of the future,” which partner with leading brands and retailers to address their future supply chain challenges and needs. TAU takes a holistic approach and through its partnership program with brands and retailers, TAU engages top global buyers to implement its transformational investment model within their supply chain.
TAU drives competitive advantages through increased scale, speed, data, and capabilities. TAU’s transformational approach is driven by cutting-edge technological investments and process improvements that drive profitability and deliver efficiency while also meeting the levels of sustainability and transparency, which consumers, brands, and retailers increasingly demand.
