Markets and consumers continue to evolve, CAEM have responded to this opportunity by significantly expanding its product range: more sizes, more colours, more options, more displays, all available as standard from the CAEM catalogue. This resulted in increased market penetration and established CAEM as a solid global player in modular shelving: the product range is designed with an attention to detail, built in flexibility with the available options and supported by our team of industry professionals.
As we enter the 21st century there has been further transformation in the market, with purchasers increasingly under pressure to secure better value for money by examining options in the emerging markets. For CAEM this was a new challenge and a tremendous opportunity: CAEM India commenced operation in 2006 and the manufacturing and design unit incorporated in 2008. New investments in key products were allocated for manufacturing in China: a newer more cost effective option became available together with 25mm, imperial 1inch and 50mm compatible shelving systems.
After the first introduction of 50mm shelving and 1inch/25mm shelving, CAEM R&D focused on further improvements for these systems. The outcome is the ultimate in metal modular shelving systems our ‘S50’ and ‘M25’ ranges. Between 2012 and 2014 CAEM proceeded with a multi-million investment in state of the art automated manufacturing of S50 and M25 in its Italian plant.
Today the CAEM Group services the market with a manufacturing capacity 10 times higher than a decade ago with an extensive range of shopfitting products and services that the marketing team customises to provide a solution to a specific retailer’s needs.
CAEM are proud of their extensive customer base covering a wide range of European retailers in many sectors: convenience stores, supermarkets and grocery, hypermarkets, discount stores, non-food discounters, pharmacies, DIY and bricolage, toys, newsagents, hospital pharmacy departments.
