Go/no go internationalCompetences of the firm/ how should they be utilized internationally?
We know that Femilet is an important firm in Scandinavia. And today Danish Femilet is one of the leading suppliers in Scandinavia of fashion lingerie.
Femilet have four different brands:
Femilet: the wonderful, elegant and fashionable lingerie for the women of today.
Shape: Femilet Shape is lingerie in the lowerprice segment.

Femilet has an important market share and the brand is recognized by 95% of the population. That is an important point, when people heard orsee the brand Femilet they know immediately what does it means.
“Femilet has 75 employees, of which half are working in the own Femilet shops.” That is means that for a big enterprise, Femilet hasn’t a lot of employees because production is outsourced and a lot of things are decentralized. Relocation allows economizing on the working force, salary, taxes...
