French clothing and underwear designer and manufacturer Lemahieu is engaging in a project to restructure its production processes in order to better respond to the dynamics of the market and to the requirements of quality and social and environmental responsibility.

The company, which is based in the Hauts de France region, is deploying Infor's multi-tenant cloud ERP solution CloudSuite Fashion to help with this.

Founded in 1947, Lemahieu was established as a family business with a strong local identity. Since 2019 and the takeover of the company by Martin Breuvart and Loïc Baert, Lemahieu has experienced significant growth, going from 90 to 130 employees in less than 36 months.

"We are strongly attached to the values we display and which, obviously, generate a positive dynamic in the textile industry that we want to be local, original, respectful and of high quality," says Baert, Lemahieu's co-director. "The goal for us with the Infor ERP implementation project is continuing to strengthen our image as a manufacturer by adopting increasingly controlled production processes.

"All of the data and information generated by our various businesses at each stage of the manufacturing process must be immediately usable in order to accelerate our processes thanks to a global and real-time vision," Baert says. "We aim not to increase production in terms of scale, but to diversify it in order to meet the specific expectations of customers seeking to stand out with original and personalised products."
