German Apparel Producer Uses Checkpoint RFID Tags

Lemmi Fashion, a Fritzlar, Germany-based producer of children's apparel, has chosen Checkpoint Systems to supply the company and its strategic partners with RFID garment tags, or hangtags, in their effort to improve Lemmi's speed to market, inventory management and order accuracy.
Checkpoint is providing Lemmi's manufacturing partners in Asia and Europe with Performa13.56 MHz RFID-enabled hangtags. The process begins when the garment tags are applied to items at production sites. The goods are recorded when they are shipped from the manufacturer to Lemmi's distribution center, and upon receipt at the DC. Movements within the DC are also recorded. Lemmi reads the RFID tags a final time at the shipping area to confirm that all items required for the shipment have been packed.
As specialists in custom-fit clothing for children in the European and Asian markets, Lemmi offers approximately 250 to 280 styles per season, and about a million garments per year.
"Because of our small lots and multiple product offerings, we needed to find an RFID tagging provider that could satisfy our unique performance and production requirements," says Götz Pfeifferling, CIO of Lemmi Fashion. "Checkpoint's experience, responsiveness and ability to deliver a high quality RFID tag at a reasonable price have enabled us to dramatically improve our business processes."
