All published titles of the French publishing house Hachette, founded by Louis Hachette in 1826, are preserved and expanded by the publishing house. In France, Hachette covers all editorial genres and the entire consumer and educational book market with some 40 publishers. The oldest print dates from the early eighteenth century.
In 2015, the French Publisher relocated its main location to the 25th arrondissement in Paris. The assignment was clear: optimal use of space was essential. The racks had to be suitable for various objects such as documents, photos, archive boxes, books in various sizes, etc. A flexible arrangement of the racks was therefore an important requirement.
It was a challenge for Stéphane Roy – CEO of Hachette – to place the existing press archives, the editorial and administrative archives and the library in the basement of the new office. The archive is largely equipped with mobile storage systems. After all, static racks always need an aisle, while mobile racks only have one aisle. As a result, the storage capacity can almost double.

The project was awarded to Bruynzeel through a tender because:

Bruynzeel communicated clearly with the users, so that it was clear to everyone what the expectations were regarding the transport of special archive goods, such as glass plates and large format printed matter. As a result, the move went very smoothly.
