Despite the impact that the pandemic is having on the textile sector, Mango, one of the two great Spanish chains, will continue to invest in innovation and, specifically, will allocate 42 million euros to expand the facilities it has in Palau-Solit I Plegamans (Barcelona), which is where it has its corporate headquarters.
This has been announced by the fashion company, which, like the rest of the sector, suffers the economic impact of the pandemic, due to the closure of stores and restrictions on them. This has boosted online sales and the chain, therefore, wants to continue betting on this channel.
This new campus for the brand will allow its logistics to adapt to this demand and future needs, even more so at a time of great transformation for the textile sector, which has had to adapt its spaces and processes to increasingly online demand. It’s powerful. This space, which will be operational in 2024, is conceived as an R + D + I center.
Mango has been implementing RFID for years, a kind of tracking system for garments, from the factory to the store. This system, which only large chains have, allows you to know the inventory that exists, and thus avoid generating a lot of stock.
The project will involve a total investment of 42 million. This amount includes the renovation of some of the buildings located at the company’s headquarters. The rest of the investment will be to build a new 20,000 square meter office space. The works will begin at the end of the year. The campus will have a total area of 93,400 square meters, of which 61,000 will be used for offices.
The group already has a logistics center in LliÃ§a d’Amunt (Barcelona), the expansion of which was approved before the pandemic broke out.
“The new Campus Mango must be an engine of change for the organization. We want to promote a new work model that allows all our collaborators to work in accordance with the customer centricity strategy (the customer at the center), which should govern all our decisions and initiatives “, says Toni Ruiz, Mango’s CEO.
