Caprice, one of the brands of the Wortmann group, plans to invest €3 million for the development of its headquarters in Pirmasens, including the creation of a training center for sales personnel. As the purchasing department will be based in Pirmasens, Caprice is building a 800 sqm storage unit, that should be completed at the end of October. Caprice has hired five new engineers and is currently searching for further skilled personnel. The brand is looking for alternatives to China for sourcing and found recently a new manufacturing partner in northern Albania. Previously, 70 percent of the brand's product line was made in China but it currently gets 40-45 percent of its products from China, 35 percent from Pakistan and the rest from Myanmar and Albania.
