Wäschekrone, one of Germany’s leading textile suppliers for the upscale hotel industry, has entered into a strategic partnership with Slimstock. The aim of this collaboration is to maintain and expand the excellent level of service. The entire hotel and catering industry carries the idea of service for guests in its DNA. As a supplier and producer for this sector, Wäschekrone is thus further optimizing supply chain processes while simultaneously increasing efficiency.

The Laichingen-based company Wäschekrone has stood for high-quality hotel and catering linen since 1960. Today, with over 80 employees, the company is one of the most important suppliers in this segment and develops contemporary, future-oriented complete textile solutions for the professional sector. The wide range of products includes table linen, bed linen, beds, bedding, mattresses, slatted frames, towels and kitchen linen.

Faced with increasing competition from international competitors, Wäschekrone recognized the opportunity to strengthen its market-leading position by adding advanced supply chain technology to its existing ERP system.

Following a comprehensive market analysis, Slimstock’s Slim4 platform was identified as the ideal solution to drive Wäschekrone’s strategic objectives of increasing efficiency, improving delivery capability and enhancing customer service.

Implementation of a scalable solution

During the proof of concept (POC), Wäschekrone’s planning team was impressed by the powerful forecasting capabilities of the Slim4 platform. Slimstock’s planning platform provides reliable demand insights and ensures high availability while helping Wäschekrone to optimize their working capital investments. In addition, Slim4 can be scaled quickly thanks to its modular design, allowing it to respond flexibly to Wäschekrone’s evolving requirements.

Matthias Wagner, Managing Partner of Wäschekrone, adds: “Our planning team was impressed by the intuitive operation of Slim4. In combination with their expertise in supply chain planning, Slimstock was the clear choice.”
