Cutter & Buck Automates Fulfillment Center in Washington With AutoStore

Kardex Holding AG

The AutoStore storage solution will enable Cutter & Buck to achieve outstanding customer service levels and quality goals, while increasing storage capacity within their existing facility.

Montgomery, OH, September 23, 2022 – As a leading apparel manufacturer and distributor, Cutter & Buck is known for high quality clothing crafted for active lifestyles, engineered for exceptional versatility. Originally founded on Seattle’s working waterfront, Cutter & Buck clothing is perfect for work, travel, date night, golf, walking, boating, hiking, entertaining, and showing fan support for a favorite MLB, NFL, or NCAA College or University Team. Increased sales through its own website, other e-commerce retailers, point of sale locations at golf courses, resort destinations, licensed product Fan Shops, and corporate apparel has led to consistent company growth and increased inventory levels within its fulfillment operation.

To accommodate this growth, Cutter & Buck will implement an AutoStore system from Kardex in their Renton, WA location to support their apparel picking and fulfillment operation. Cutter & Buck selected AutoStore, an automated cube storage technology solution, empowered by Kardex for the speed and density of the solution. The Kardex Control Center software (WCS) will drive the AutoStore goods to person fulfillment solution.    

AutoStore is a fully automated and intelligent goods-to-person storage and retrieval system offering industry leading product storage density. Bins are stacked vertically in a grid and retrieved by intelligent, battery-powered vehicles that travel on top of the grid system, sorting, carrying and delivering bins to the respective workstations (ports), where a variety of warehouse operations can be performed (picking, replenishment, inventory control, etc.) by warehouse personnel. The flexible, tailor-made system fits even the most unusually shaped facilities, allowing the grid to be placed around columns, on mezzanines and on multiple levels. The bins are stacked neatly on top of each other in a condensed grid-style system, increasing storage capacity up to four times and performance up to 10 times that of traditional storage methods. AutoStore can easily adapt to changing order fulfillment requirements through a flexible configuration of the robots, ports and quantity of bin locations.
