SUCCESSFUL CASE: GMELICH - A GERMAN COMPANY REFERENCE IN HIGH STANDARD LEATHER
Gmelich, a company with worldwide relevance in the high-quality leather manufacturing industry, had its beginning in 1923. In that year, Otto Gmelich and his sons Hugo and Robert founded the business in Großbottwar, a city in Baden-Württemberg, Germany.
During its first years, Gmelich focused on producing leather for the shoe industry, handcrafted processed. However, in 1949, the company added to its portfolio leather for the fashion and furniture industry. Nowadays, Gmelich has more than 150 employees, and its portfolio includes the manufacturing of leather for the furniture market, both luxury and corporate, and for the aviation industry, supplying leather for the making of airplane seats.
In almost one century of existence, several changes have happened in the company. Alongside this development, it has arisen the need to invest in process improvement and new technologies to facilitate daily activities, increase productivity, and reduce cost while delivering better customer service, adding value to the final product.
In order to meet these perceived needs, the partnership between Gmelich and SystemHaus committed in January 2019, when we started the Business Blueprint and detailing of the Antara project in the German company.
To celebrate this successful partnership between Gmelich & SystemHaus, we have talked to some leaders from Gmelich about their experience with Antara. Mr. Volker Nagel, Gmelich’s CEO back in 2019; Mr. Christian Wiesner, the company’s CEO nowadays, that was also part of the project during the transition to his new position; and Mrs. Sabrina Ehmann, the project manager, and the key user of the system; they have told us about their experience with Antara.
SystemHaus is very proud to contribute to this successful trajectory, from a company that has been operating for 99 years in the market and keeps developing itself in order to exceed.
Gmelich focus in the future, but it does not forget its roots, since those build its vision and mission. Such a fruitful history is what gives strength for the company to thrive and succeed, increasing day by day its participation in the global market.
We congratulate Gmelich for its successful history! You can count on us, from SystemHaus, to achieve the upcoming challenges.
