A/S Villy Jansen embarks upon an ambitious business improvement project with Slimstock
A/S Villy Jensen, Scandinavia’s largest wholesale distributor of sewing and knitting accessories, has launched a business improvement project to boost efficiency.
Founded in 1964, A/S Villy Jensen has built a solid reputation for offering its customers outstanding choice and fast delivery. To build upon its exceptional service standards and support the business’ growth ambitions, the specialist wholesale distributor has joined forces with the inventory experts at Slimstock.
Based in Aarhus, Denmark, the third-generation family-run business offers a complete range encompassing everything from buttons and zippers to embroidery and knitting essentials.
Trusted by customers throughout the Nordics as well across Eastern Europe & Asia, A/S Villy Jensen is one of the leading specialist suppliers to the upholstered furniture and textile trade. As official distributors of Amann, Astor and OKE products amongst others, Villy Jensen provides an unrivalled selection of products.
Better service with less stock
To reduce investment in stock while still improving service levels, the business identified a need to improve supply chain efficiency. However, to achieve their business improvement objectives, the team at Villy Jensen needed a partner with the right knowledge and industry experience.
Michael Mors Larsen, Owner & CEO at Villy Jensen explains the decision to work with Slimstock: “We worked closely with Slimstock’s consultants to identify opportunities for optimisation. After seeing the potential for improvement, it was clear that Slimstock is best partner to help us optimise our purchasing process.”
Supply chain automation
To help automate supply chain processes, the specialist distributor will implement Slimstock’s advanced supply chain optimisation platform, Slim4.
Focused on forecasting, demand planning and inventory optimisation, the bolt-on solution will provide the planning team at Villy Jensen with greater visibility and control throughout its operation.
Underpinned by management by exception principles, Slim4 will also help Michael and his team to streamline supply chain processes.
Once implemented, Slim4 will play a key role in helping the business to realise its supply chain KPIs by attaining the perfect balance of inventory.
Explaining the decision to roll out Slim4, Michael Mors Larsen states: “Among other things, Slim4 will help our team to focus on the right tasks. By allowing us to automate routine workflows, our team can invest more time in improving the business processes throughout the organization.”
Peter Malling, Country Manager at Slimstock Denmark, concludes: “We are excited to have the opportunity to support Michael Mors Larsen and his team on their optimisation journey. With our shared commitment to providing an exceptional customer experience, there is great synergy between Slimstock and Villy Jensen. As we embark upon this project, we hope to build a lasting partnership for years to come.”
