They completely overhauled their factory to streamline production.

They've been refining their cuts as well. Over the last couple of seasons, every time my store has received the new Coppley MTM spec book, I've had to actually study it because it's so different from the previous season. It's leaps and bounds, really.
Eton still does that heavy, stiff fusible, by the way.
