Supply chain objectives

Reform Clothing to ensure conditions or expectations of all orders are clear and transparent, particularly in regard to price, lead time, and job specifications.
Factory staff and suppliers, as our partners, work toward a collective goal so that all parties have a mutually-beneficial relationship and can deliver a product with which they are proud to be associated.
Reform Clothing to make all payments to suppliers within agreed terms.
Reform Clothing to be understanding of mistakes, provided they are not due to misleading behaviour or information, or unprofessional work practices.
