An Ontario-based company seeking to become one of Canada’s leading and most advanced technology and fulfillment organizations. And it is launching a nationwide platform to do so.
To push forward with its goals, Scarborough’s Darwynn announced this week the completion of a $20 million pre-seed investment. According to a statement from Darwynn, the capital will be used to expand development of its multi-tenant, intelligent automated fulfillment network that has been purpose-built to provide Canadian brands and individuals with access to a state-of-the-art solution.
“Developing a national infrastructure that revolutionizes the market and gives companies of all sizes a competitive edge that’s no longer only available to Fortune 500 companies is at the heart of Darwynn’s aspirations,” explains Wynn Xie, President of Darwynn.
Darwynn provides proprietary end-to-end fulfillment technology, enabling partners to transform operations and capabilities while reducing their per-unit fulfillment costs and thus increasing profitability, the company says.
“This initial round of financing is an important stepping stone for us as we build our offering alongside our partners while also solidifying our positioning and capabilities in our core markets,” Xie added.
Through use of Darwynn’s infrastructure, customers gain access to a cost-efficient, nationwide service with real-time visibility of fulfillment activities.
“The opportunity for innovation within the Canadian fulfillment marketplace through the use of data and automation is immense,” noted Reza Bafandeh, CEO of Darwynn.
Darwynn aims to provide “an industry-leading, cost-efficient fulfilment solution to all customers regardless of size,” according to Bafandeh. A slogan on their website reads “Building a world class ecosystem that enables anyone and everyone to compete in E-commerce.”
The technology is complex, but the mission is not.
“Our vision is to be the world’s most seller-centric company, providing a platform that gives complete control and visibility to brands and retailers,” Bafandeh stated.
