There is an old saying, "Everything in life is location, location, location!" That is certainly true of the textile industry, and wholesale fabric importer Ramtex, Inc. is a testament to this. Ramtex maintains dye houses and a cut and sew facility in China, which allows for convenient China to China shipping for its clients, but it also maintains a stockpile of hundreds of thousands of yards of fabric in a Los Angeles fabric warehouse. That decision has enabled Ramtex, Inc. to respond to orders much faster and with more consistency than the competition. Indeed, there have been many instances in which a business ordered fabric wholesale from another importer, only to come to Ramtex, Inc. when that first company failed to meet deadlines. Now these businesses are loyal customers of Ramtex, Inc., returning time and again for all their wholesale fabric needs.
