Fashion company Camaïeu is updating the existing sorters in their warehouse in Roubaix, France. Camaïeu is the leading brand of women's ready-to-wear clothing in France.
Camaïeu’s warehouse latest expansion of their sorter fleet included two pre-sorters that have been installed a few years ago. These are good to go for quite some years. There are however five flat sorters (bomb bay sorters) that have been installed over ten years ago. In order to maximise the efficiency of the flat sorters and to ensure their productivity, Equinox and Transitic have updated the sorters one by one. This includes improvement or replacements of moving parts, updating the electrical installation and installation of new displays around the sorter. In addition, the Exact software for each sorter will be updated and moved to a new server.
By updating their existing sorters, Camaïeu is ready for the coming years without needing to invest in new machines. This is one of the advantages of the Equinox sorter doctor program, which provides an alternative for new-built sorters when an existing sorter is already in place. This service includes a quick scan with a report that outlines possible upgrades. The proposal always aims at upgrading, repairing or modifying existing components in order to prevent unnecessary costs.
Founded more than 30 years ago, Camaïeu is the leading brand of women's ready-to-wear clothing in France and is supported by a network of more than 900 stores around the world in 20 countries/territories (including 650 in France).

Camaïeu has been recognised as France's Best Chain Store of the Year 2017-2018, in the Women's Fashion category (October 2017) - Trophy awarded by the marketing agency Newim.
