Due to SNG Barratt’s growth in production, more storage space is needed in their warehouse and manufacturing stores and therefore opted for a solution by Kardex Remstar.
They needed to improve productivity to 2,300 lines and 400 daily orders. The decision was made to increase storage by taking away part of the roof and refurbish it with an upward extension.
Kardex Remstar recommended 9 x 7.950 meter high Vertical Lift Modules Shuttle XP 250 that would fit and fill the new height increase, optimising storage capacity and reducing floor space by 70%.
Thanks to the Shuttle XP’s dual-tray system, picking speeds increased by 99%. 70% of the company’s entire stock is now stored in the Vertical Lift Modules.
The security features of the systems deliver peace of mind on the more valuable parts stored, as SNG Barratt work to the 5s standard.
The shuttle XPs’ design enables the storage of a broad range of new/old model parts meaning distribution is faster. The management system for internal stock movement is bespoke and integrates seamlessly with Kardex Remstar Power Pick Global software.
