German company Gärtner is an expert in Transport Technology and Storage System for hanging goods for the past 40 years. After offering its services to US and Europe, it has finally taken the much awaited leap towards the new and fastest growing markets in Asia, especially India. Offering custom-made economic solutions to various industries including the automotive Industry, laundry services, garment rental, hotels and light industry, Gärtner has its systems implemented at Mango, M&S and many others.
Optimizing the processes of intralogistics and storage of a company, Gärtner offers customized solutions with a perfect balance of latest technology which are, at the same time, economical too. Even though the core client base has been the garment industry, with the passage of time, the company has shown excellent skills in reengineering its product line to suit other industries like the automotive industry, laundry services, garment rental, hotels and light industry. Today, some of the big names that are using Gärtner systems to efficiently manage the flow of their product include Ross Stores, Motherworks and QVC Home Shopping in the US. In Europe, the company is popular with brands such as Mango and Marks & Spencer.
The conveyor systems offered by the company are simple and yet highly efficient, capable of handling from 5000 pieces of a small garmenting unit to as much as 2 million pieces. With its capability to easily mould the systems to suit the individual needs, the company makes it even easier for its customers. The company gives a choice of manual operated transport sections, continuous conveyors, transport and accumulation conveyors and 3-D chain conveyors to its customers.
The garments can be easily sorted into sets of single or multiple pieces according to the required sequence at a speed adjustable to the goods being handled. In fact, to make its systems more efficient, Gärtner has incorporated the RFID technology where each garment movement is controlled by RFID code. This code is married to the actual control system for easy movement and tracking throughout the chain. This does not allow any margin of error.
Gärtner systems are robust to handle all kinds of sortation, traceability and transportation at the each individual SKU. It is a known fact with the industry that in spite of the best efforts of the companies, 50% of the material still gets returned for various reasons as it does not meet customers’ expectations; it may be of size or colour. The system helps to track these returns and then immediately redirect the same product to fill another customer’s demand so as to prevent the process of restoring; here too the RFID-enabled systems play a major role.
A popular feature of Gärtner systems has been their capability to use every available space in a manufacturing unit. Their hanger systems can be placed even under the ceiling. This way the company does not have to rent additional warehouse space, thus saving on money.
Offering personalized consultation and support, Gärtner today offers solutions to many industries. Perfect planning and implementation are the core strengths of their working method which show results in increased efficiency and profitability of their customers. Backed by their vast experience, the company is finally ready to offer its services to Indian industries in association with Magnum Resources.
