South Korean YG1 strengthens its position in France thanks to Savoye’s logistics expertise

Specialist in industrial tooling solutions, YG-1 is an internationally renowned company with multiple R&D centers, production units, sales offices and logistics warehouses worldwide. . 

The YG1 group has been established in France for several years. In order to support its French subsidiary in the modernization of its logistics platform, located in Saint-Thibault-des-Vignes in the Paris region, the South Korean company has chosen to rely on the know-how of Savoye. 

In 2018, YG-1, a major player in the cutting tool industry, launched a call for tenders to provide its Saint-Thibault-des-Vignes site with a warehouse management tool. In the first quarter of 2021, the warehouse manually processed approximately 8,000 references from a catalog of 50,000, both own brand and white label. The South Korean company wishes to equip itself with a WMS system capable of securing its stocks, ensuring reference management but also of optimizing and making the preparation of orders more reliable, while improving inventories.

Choose a global logistics partner, with an international dimension

With an IT  team based in Korea, YG-1 is looking for a service provider capable of working internationally and ensuring the best possible interface management with its SAP ERP . 

The challenge? Propose an EAI  capable of ensuring communication between the WMS  and the group’s IT tools to facilitate remote work. The adaptability, responsiveness and international dimension offered by Savoye enabled it to win the call for tenders.  

The Savoye Magistor®® WMS,  which is scheduled to be installed in SaaS  mode at the end of 2021 on the YG-1 site in France, will cover all warehouse flows: from reception to shipment, including storage, kitting  and order preparation. By 2025, the French subsidiary of the South Korean group YG-1 could also invest in automation, alongside its new logistics partner. 

“YG-1 aims to become the leading supplier of cutting tools by 2035. A fundamental element in achieving this goal is the complete digitalization of our European distribution center. Wishing to join forces with an experienced, competent, reliable and international partner that can set up digital solutions for our warehouse with us, we chose Savoye.” concluded Mr. Mecacci, YG1 COO.
