Its factory and distribution hub (6000 m2 surface area and 2000 m2 parking space) are located in Cacém, near Lisbon. A family-owned business, Quadrimóvel has a workforce of over 80 highly-specialized professionals.
It stocks some 60,000 articles in the fine arts, decorative arts and craft paper areas.
Late in 2019, in response to the rapid expansion of picking operations driven by the diversification of its product range and distribution channels, Polyflame decided to totally re-think its logistics processes in terms both of organization and practices.
The company decided to concentrate all its logistics activities - previously divided between a 4000 m2 platform in Bonneuil-sur-Marne and an outsourcer in Rotterdam, in charge of operations for hazardous products - in a single site.
A fully redesigned, centralized, automated logistics system means gains in efficiency and speed
Flexible, targeted rollout of robotics technology
for improved change management
Faster order picking to keep ahead of the competition
In May 2020 Polyflame signed the lease agreement for its new logistics hub, and after examining the various mobile robotics order picking systems on the market it selected SCALLOG’s Goods To Man solution as the product that stood out for its flexibility, scalability and unparalleled ROI.
At present, the Polyflame hub has a SCALLOG zone of 500 m2, 2 stations (one dedicated 100% to picking, the other handling picking and restocking on a 50/50 basis), 8 robots (6 of them dedicated to picking and 2 to restocking) and 130 shelf units. The results in terms of productivity and optimized workload are impressive.
