VF Corporation Selects Manhattan Associates for Supply Chain Execution


Retail Leader to Implement Warehouse Management Solution as First Step in New Distribution Center Strategy

ATLANTA - October 24, 2005 - Leading supply chain solutions provider, Manhattan Associates, Inc. (NASDAQ: MANH), will implement its Supply Chain Execution solutions for VF Corporation, one of the world’s largest apparel companies. Headquartered in Greensboro, NC, VF Corporation will leverage Manhattan Associates’ Warehouse Management, Labor Management and Performance Management solutions in its Outdoor division’s newest distribution center (DC) in Visalia, CA.

These solutions will be implemented based on business needs to streamline for business unit growth, support the implementation of automation technologies, and accommodate overall system modernization. VF’s Sportswear division implemented Manhattan Associates’ Warehouse Management and Trading Partner Management solutions in 2004 and wholesale division in 2005 with much success.

"VF Corporation selected Manhattan Associates’ Warehouse Management and optimization solutions as we began our new DC strategy because of our excellent existing relationship and the proven results we have experienced from their solutions in other divisions," said Terry Brown, VF’s director of common systems.

VF will continue upgrading to Manhattan Associates’ latest version of its Warehouse Management solution as the DC strategy and business plans allow. As a part of VF's common system portfolio, the company will look to this as the solution set to support future growth. Manhattan Associates’ solution fits well with VF’s existing ERP solution from SAP and will help improve the consolidation process and enhance overall performance.

"By embracing cutting-edge concepts such as shared services and common systems, VF Corporation continues to offer world-leading brands to its consumers while cutting operational costs by optimizing its DCs," said Jeff Mitchell, Manhattan Associates’ executive vice president, Americas. "VF and Manhattan Associates saw success with the implementation of our supply chain solutions in its Sportswear division, and we look forward to growing our relationship further."
