Development new building support
stichd is a daughter company of Puma (former Dobotex) and has the European license to design, produce and sell socks and bodywear for PUMA, Tommy Hilfiger, HEAD, LEVI’s and is the trackside retail partner for Formula-1 racing.
Although stichd has moved to a new site a few years ago, further growth urged stichd to consider automation. Groenewout led the design and business case analyses, resulting in PUMA to support investing in goods-to-person technology. Groenewout supported the tender for warehouse automation and was involved in the subsequent engineering phases.
Thorough data analyses, system concepting & defining required system capacities and calculating man-hour reduction potential by Groenewout were the main ingredients for the business case approved at board level.
Running the tender for G2P-solutions was a joint effort of stichd and Groenewout. While stichd focuses on project management and business processes, Groenewout focused on performance and capacity reviews, technical solution reviews and the financial business case.
