Famart chooses WMS Delage ® Rx as its intralogistics management software
Delage ends 2019 with another important consolidated partnership: Famart, the fastest-growing distributor of construction materials, tools and hardware in the state of Rio de Janeiro, has chosen WMS Delage ® Rx as its intralogistics management software. The expectation is that Delage’s technology will bring even more support for the company to continue its rapid growth. Famart ends 2019 with an increase of 130% in its revenues, and the goal of its Directors, brothers Ronaldo Martins and Felipe Martins, is to improve internal logistics to expand the company’s range of operations while maintaining the high standard of customer service.
According to Felipe Martins, the growth of the company opened up new possibilities and brought more challenges, the biggest one being the structuring and organization of the business. “We understand that investing in technology became a priority at this time, and we decided to start with WMS in order to optimize our logistics processes and gain productivity to continue growing”. Asked about why he chose Delage WMS, the Director of Farmart argued: “After an extensive study of WMS suppliers, we signed with Delage because we understood that it was the solution that best suited our need, and because it was the company that brought the most security at this time of major changes.”
Technology to grow and stand out
Famart Distribuidora’s operation began in 2012, in an area of 30 m², already with the dream of supplying construction material retail throughout the state of RJ. Today, seven years later, the company has an area of 3,000 m² of inventory, more than 5,000 items online and more than 70 collaborators, with major national and imported brands as suppliers, such as: Belgian (ArcelorMittal), Black+Decker, General Electric (GE), Morlan, São Romão, Aliança, Stanley, Sil, Stam, Tramontina, Fabrimar, Amanco, Lorenzetti, Bosch, among others.
One of the differentials for this growth to happen so quickly and effectively is the entrepreneurial vision of its Directors, two young entrepreneurs who in 2012 realized the opportunity to meet the need for a hot market (construction) and today are not only among the largest in the segment in Rio de Janeiro, but already have operations in São Paulo and Espírito Santo. With the vision of becoming not only market leaders, but also the best company to work for, Famart partners see investment in technology as a key part of achieving these objectives.
WMS Rx deployment project
The deployment of WMS Delage ® Rx will take place in the Petrópolis warehouse, which meets multichannel demands: its distribution is for both e-commerce and retail sales. To account for the complexity of the operation, Delage has developed a robust project, in which WMS Rx will offer the entire structure to give more speed, precision and safety to the processes, enabling the company to increase its sales, maintaining high quality in deliveries and efficient management. Felipe says he is confident in the partnership: “I hope to return in a few months to talk about success in the operation”, he highlighted.
Delage thanks Famart for its confidence and aspires for the company to exceed all its expectations with this great project!
