Press release: Mason Companies in the US, purchases CVP-500

Mason Companies, a nationwide retailer of footwear, apparel and general merchandise, has purchased the CVP-500 automated packing solution. The innovative packing solution will optimize operations for the busy holiday season.

Mason Companies is a family-owned company that has been operating in Wisconsin’s Chippewa Valley for over 100 years. The business began in 1904 by selling logging boots to local lumbermen. Today the company sells footwear, apparel and general merchandise nationwide via the internet and mail order catalogs. Mason’s ventures include eight titles: ShoeMall, Stoneberry, K. Jordan, Masseys, Mason Easy-Pay, Maryland Square, Auditions, and B.A. Mason. Mason Companies is committed to maintaining an atmosphere of mutual respect for employees, customers and partners, and is now one of the largest footwear catalogers in the world.

Cost-saving solution

“We are thrilled to extend our partnership with Mason Companies with the purchase of the CVP-500 automated packing solution,” said Scott Eggenberger, Director of Business Development CVP-500 in the USA. “Mason Companies currently uses the ProShip Product Suite, our enterprise-wide, multi-carrier shipping software that optimizes shipping processes. With the CVP-500, the company will have a fully integrated cost-saving solution for order fulfillment that will increase packing and shipping efficiencies, especially during the peak holiday season.”

Warehouse efficiency

“The CVP-500 will be a great addition to Mason Companies,” said Pat Sullivan, Distribution Center Manager at Mason Companies. “We saw the CVP-500 in action while in Europe, where it has been very well received by a number of large retailers. We were extremely impressed with its capabilities and its ability to improve our warehouse efficiency and customer service. At the same time, the CVP-500 will help us to save money in labor, packaging materials and shipping costs. The new system will be installed in time to handle the peak shipping volumes of the upcoming holiday season and we look forward to seeing the valuable results we know this innovative system can achieve.”

This is the second CVP-500 automated packing solution in the United States since the system was launched in February 2016.
