RELEX Solutions Acquires Galleria

RELEX Solutions, a fast growing European supply chain solution provider, has acquired Galleria, a leading provider of category planning, automation and optimization solutions to the retail industry. Together, the organizations’ extended capabilities mark a significant development in RELEX’s vision to create an end-to-end integrated retail and supply chain planning platform.

The acquisition increases the footprint of RELEX’s existing sales and delivery network in North America and APAC, with the united company having prime retail brands including, Morrisons, PARKnSHOP, Rossmann and Safeway. The combined company offers an integrated retail planning platform, with state-of-the-art technology, to manage and optimize the inventory from supplier-level up to the point of sale, from automated replenishment to planograms.

 “We are delighted to announce that Galleria is joining RELEX Solutions,” said Mikko KÄrkkÄinen, group CEO, RELEX Solutions. “There is a great synergy between the two solutions. Like RELEX, Galleria is dedicated to helping its clients achieve increased sales, enhanced margins, reduced inventory, cut waste and improved on-shelf availability.”

The integration of RELEX’s supply chain solutions and Galleria’s consumer focused solutions for clustering, automated assortment, space optimization and planogramming has already started with preliminary work jointly done with retailers using both solutions and will carry on in the coming months.

 “We are thrilled to become part of the RELEX group and to play a critical role in developing an integrated retail planning platform,” said Ian Duncan-Lewis, CEO, Galleria. “RELEX’s founders have an unprecedented clarity of thought in how retailers’ existing supply chain and planning processes can be improved through the latest generation of innovative technology.”
