GSD Corporate Ltd

GSD is a UK company based in the north of England, traditionally the heartland of the UK garment and textile industry. Since 1976 we have been, and continue to be, a global market leader, supplying methods analysis and productivity improvement solutions to the sewn products sector. Our products, our pedigree and more than 35 years in our business sector make us THE industry standard in our field. We are active in more than 62 Countries and have more than 5,000 customers worldwide. There are also more than 12,000 formally licensed “GSD Practitioners” in the world today – truly a globally recognised qualification.

We specialise in solutions for Time - Cost Benchmarking, Productivity Improvement and Social Compliance in Work Measurement, and achieve this through the provision and application of our core software products, GSD Enterprise and  GSD QUEST.

GSD solutions are used not only in the Product Development and Costing departments of  global brands and retailers , but also in Industrial Engineering and Costing departments in the worldwide manufacturing sector, where the benefit GSD is also seen in production planning, production management, human resources and sales departments. Productivity improvements in the factory environment have significant impact on internal costs, factory efficiency, profitability and competitive edge.

When GSD is found in both the brand/retail and their supply chain, it becomes the “common language” that enables buyer and supplier to accurately and consistently quantify the labour content of a given product. GSD thereby engenders objective and consistent fact-based cost negotiation.
