enVista (Booth 3681) unveiled its Facility Design Build practice today. enVista has spent the last two years building a premier Facility Design Build services team and has successfully completed projects for a dozen leading retailers and distributors including: ECCO, Dansko, Horizon Hobby, and Pet Supplies Plus.

enVista’s Facility Design Build services support the organization’s “Consult, Implement, Operate” (CIO) approach by creating a single point of responsibility from supply chain strategy to beneficial use. The design build business unit will deliver over eight large-scale projects in 2013 with forecasted revenue of $50M.

enVista president and CEO Jim Barnes said, “We took a different approach when we developed this business unit. We spent the last two years proving out the business model. It starts with exceptional talent that is focused on 100% client satisfaction.  We are not a material handling equipment vendor who takes orders. Our goal is to implement solutions that create economic value for our clients. Unlike many material handling systems integrators, our livelihood is not dependent on how much conveyor we install. We will not build a solution that we did not design. We take accountability from concept, detailed engineering, installation and acceptance. Our design build capabilities complement the 150 supply chain and IT consultants that we have. We are truly driving value and reducing waste in our clients supply chains.”

Mike Kasperski, managing partner of Supply Chain Services at enVista said, “There are very few firms that can develop an IT application road map strategy for a retailer and then build a retail centric distribution center to support the strategy. The power in our solution offering is that we understand inventory optimization and product flow; therefore, we are truly optimizing supply chains from source to consumption.”

ProMat 2013 is scheduled to be held January 21-24, 2013 in Chicago’s McCormick Place South. The tradeshow will showcase the latest manufacturing, distribution and supply chain solutions in the material handling and logistics industry. Modern’s complete ProMat 2013 coverage.
