DASSY is in full control of the entire production process, from design to logistics. Even though we closely want to monitor every step in the development process, we will launch some automation for the sake of efficiency. Our semi-automatic warehouse is up and running since a couple of years and to further improve the delivery rate, we are expanding our warehouse with fully automatic technology to take over some logistic processes.
Our ambitions to keep on growing started in 2012 with a brand-new head office offering 7000 m² of storage space, which is used to manage the stocks. This was a logical step in our evolution, to optimize the logistic processes and to guarantee an excellent service in the future.
Nowadays, it is impossible to imagine a workplace without the name DASSY professional workwear. Thanks to our extensive dealer network, we continually grow our market share in over 20 countries. Correspondingly, we want to maintain our high-quality level and great flexibility to swiftly respond to the specific needs of the professional market. To ensure that the associated logistic processes run as efficiently as possible, we started building a brand-new warehouse last year. This new storage space will also have an area of 5000 m², of which 2000 m² will be fully automated.
In our new depository, a box shuttle system will ensure that warehouse logistics run more accurately. A box shuttle system is an electrically powered storage system in a customized rack. A shuttle will automatically move products to the right place in the rack according to the principle ‘Goods to Person’ picking, which allows us to pick more efficiently, safer and at a higher speed.
Moreover, our fully automated warehouse will increase our productivity and enable us to respond to the growing demand of DASSY workwear. Thanks to the efficiency of the automation we will be able to maintain our high service levels and achieve our goal of offering professional workwear that meets all the expectations of the modern professional.
For the logistic concept we once again joined forces with our partner Logflow. For the construction of our new warehouse, we joined forces with TGW Logistics Group. TGW Logistics Group is a leader in highly automatic solutions. We expect that the expansion of the new warehouse will be operational as of July 2021.

Finally, it is undeniable that the corona crisis and the lockdown were challenging for every company. Despite all of this, our market share is still growing and we feel, also thanks to our new warehouse, very positive and hopeful about the future.
