Von Maur and Peach State Power Up Material Handling to Accommodate Store Growth

ATLANTA –(June 2015) -- Von Maur (www.vonmaur.com) and Peach State Integrated Technologies (www.peachstate.com) have completed the installation of a new shipping and receiving material handling system in Von Maur's distribution center in Davenport, Iowa. Designed and integrated by Peach State, the system will support Von Maur's increased order processing and commitment to customer satisfaction as the Company continues its strategic national expansion. The complex material handling system was designed to provide the most advantageous processes based on operational costs, labor availability, order quality elements, and projected store growth. It features 1.7 miles of powered conveyor and a 50,000 square foot mezzanine.

Von Maur is a family-owned, high-end retailer known for its outstanding selection of brand name and specialty apparel, shoes, accessories, and gifts from leading brands such as Eileen Fisher, Free People, Kate Spade New York, Joe’s Jeans and Tommy Bahama, among many others. Founded more than 140 years ago in downtown Davenport, Iowa, Von Maur currently operates 30 stores in 14 states – Alabama, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Nebraska, New York, Ohio and Oklahoma – along with a 120,000 square foot E-Commerce facility that drives its successful online business at vonmaur.com.

“Peach State’s commitment to designing and installing a system that would support our expanding store locations and increasing customer base was a critical factor in our selection process,” said Dave Burke, Director of Operations at Von Maur. “As we continue to add new stores – such as our third Atlanta location in 2016 and one in Milwaukee in 2017 – Peach State will help us deliver the unparalleled customer service Von Maur is known for to customers all across the country.”
