  • ArcelorMittal partners with Leroy Merlin

Bring your ideas to life with ArcelorMittal and Leroy Merlin

ArcelorMittal WireSolutions in Bissen (Luxembourg) signed a 3-year partnership with Leroy Merlin, key player on the worldwide DIY market, to distribute our welded fences in 126 stores in France as from January 2017.                    

Bissen’s first big contract with a large retailer

As from 2 January 2017, WireSolutions’ welded fences with Nature coating (0% PVC) Luxor®, Forte® Medium, Palma® and Yucca® is available in the Leroy Merlin stores across France.

According to Christine Saintagne, Senior Sales Officer in charge of the project: ˝Bissen is entering a new dimension and is getting organised in order to confidently manage this first big contract with a large retailer. To do so, a working group of 12 people has been set up.

An investment has been done in order to create a modern logistic platform dedicated to the Leroy Merlin contract only and enables to practice cross-docking*. Our challenge is now to guarantee our customers a perfect service, both in quality and delivery time, in order to make this partnership durable.˝

This is another partnership between ArcelorMittal WireSolutions and Leroy Merlin as we have been working with Leroy Merlin Poland to distribute welded fences as well. 

*Cross-docking is a practice in logistics of unloading materials from an incoming semi-trailer truck or railroad car and loading these materials directly into outbound trucks, trailers, or rail cars, with little or no storage in between.
