Subject: Finding the right technology fit to manage growth – Marine Layer success story with PLM

San Francisco-based company, Marine Layer, began 10 years ago by making one product. Today they have 35 stores, produce a large range of clothing and accessories for men, women and children, and are experiencing significant growth. To support Marine Layer’s expansion, the company decided to invest in Centric PLM to manage growth.  Megan Eddings, Head of Product Development at Marine Layer will tell the story of how they chose PLM to manage data and support operations from product design and development to retail, how they increased styles by 178% and doubled the number of stores in less than 2 years.

Megan Eddings has spent most of her career in the apparel industry working for several brands across the country such a Tory Burch and Polo Ralph Lauren. She joined Marine Layer’s product team 4 years ago and today is Head of Product Development.
