CPA’s international outlook attenuates pandemic aftershocks

Given the gravity of the pandemic and other recent world events, it was inevitable that companies such as Winnipeg’s Mondetta clothing were going to see a temporary dip in demand for products. However, as founder Prashant Modha CPA, CMA explains, Mondetta was able to stay healthy during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond thanks to its global profile and attitude.

“We work with 53 different factories in 13 countries and this has helped us shift production around the world so we can meet all of our orders on time. When China was experiencing significant challenges, we were able to rely on other centres. Going forward, our diverse supply chain is a significant advantage as it appears countries will continue to be affected at different times.”

Those global contacts, along with its vast manufacturing and procurement experience, led the company to sign a multi-million dollar contract with the Government of Manitoba to produce medical scrubs. Mondetta has also been working with Health Canada and recently obtained its Class I and II Medical Device Establishment Licence (MDEL), which allows them to import key medical products.

“For the medical gowns, we have retooled a factory that would typically produce woven shirts,” Modha says.

They’ve also embraced the challenge to move quickly. For example, one factory was offline for only six days while it was being repurposed for the medical equipment. The factories being used for most of the production are those based in China and Vietnam, since capacity doesn’t exist closer to home.

Recently, other provinces have reached out to Mondetta to seek out its overseas expertise.

It’s fitting that Mondetta’s iconic “undivided” sweatshirts – featuring flags of countries and cooperative human initiatives such as the European Union – continue to be the company’s most iconic piece of apparel. Although they didn’t know it when the design was conceived in 1986, the core idea and concept remain more relevant than ever.
