“Getronics proved to be a very professional and reliable partner, the entire care-out was completed in record time and with minimum impact on the day-to-day operations of the business.” Arne Amann, Director Operations, MEZ Group.
“MEZ stands for “The Joy of Handcrafting”. The MEZ GmbH (former EMEA Crafts business of UK headquartered Coats Group) is the leading supplier of textile craft products in Europe, with a history of over 200 years. Getronics proved to be a very professional and reliable partner, the entire care-out was completed in record time and with minimum impact on the day-to-day operations of the business. We are very happy with the results and the fit to the stand-alone entity, the transaction has created. We will no doubt return to Getronics for future IT projects.”
– Arne Amann, Director Operations, MEZ Group
MEZ's headquarters are based in Germany, with locations across the UK, Turkey, Spain, Italy, Portugal, Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria, and the Baltics.
MEZ is one of the main players in the European market for craft products. It sells various product groups such as hand knitting, embroidery and sewing yarns, lifestyle fabrics, zips, as well as various kits. In its production plant in Hungary, it also produces cotton yarns for the various categories and is the exclusive ditributor for globally renowned brands such as Schachenmayer, Rowan, Regia and Red Heart, among others.
With MEZ separating from the Coats Group in 2015, they needed a complete new IT infrastructure and storage solution, all this with limited time for planning and implementation.
