Home Improvement

Mill's Pride is renovating its supply chain

Atlanta  June 24  Sometimes even do-it-yourselfers need some outside help. That's why Mill's Pride, which manufactures kitchen cabinets, bathroom, closet and storage products for those who are handy at home, has chosen Logility Voyager Solutions to enable the planning, distribution and replenishment of its products.

Mill's Pride is a fast-growing company, selling its home cabinets primarily through retail home improvement channels. In order to keep up with growing demand, they tapped Logility to determine the best quantity and mix of products they will need to manufacture, Logility said.

Logility Demand Planning, Inventory Planning and Voyager Collaborate, according to Logility, will enable visibility into Mill's Pride's daily customer demand and inventory balances, by location and product, and optimal inventory investment to meet service objectives to calculate the safety stock needed to fulfill demand.

"Mill's Pride needed a solution that would help us forecast and plan customer demand and how much safety stock should be maintained at each distribution center," said Patrick Minick, director of manufacturing systems for Mill's Pride. "Logility Voyager Solutions will give Mill's Pride the ability needed to more profitably fulfill demand at all customer touch-points. When you add that capability to the ROI [return on investment] and ease-of-use, we expect customer service levels to improve while decreasing inventory investment."

"Companies must be able to respond to customer demand before competitors can," said Mike Edenfield, Logility CEO and president. "Logility gives Mill's Pride insight into supply chain visibility that starts with demand planning and forecasting, which enables collaboration throughout the supply chain."

Mill's Pride selected Logility Voyager Solutions through an evaluation of several supply chain solution providers.
