The new logistics centre of multinational Femaş Group, a manufacturer of kitchen equipment, will be outfitted with two automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS), one for boxes and another for pallets. Additionally, it will have an extensive inverted electrified monorail system charged with connecting the storage zone with the other areas in the warehouse.
Located in Kayseri, Turkey, the AS/RS for pallets will stand 13.5 m tall by 38 m long. With three aisles, it will have the capacity to store around 2,000 unit loads. Just beside it, Mecalux will build an AS/RS for boxes managed by two miniload stacker cranes. This system will house 9,200 boxes of up to three different sizes. Both storage solutions will manage both raw material and finished product ready for dispatch.
Meanwhile, the automatic handling equipment — i.e., lifts, conveyors and inverted electrified monorails — will speed up the internal transport of goods throughout the logistics centre.
Easy WMS, the warehouse management software from Mecalux, will run all operations efficiently and under the bidirectional, seamless connection with Femaş Group's SAP ERP system.
When we met with Mecalux, we saw not only a company that supplies in line with demand, but also a team that adds its own contributions to the warehouse and management system we need. Mecalux is a very strong and solution-oriented business with a solid technical infrastructure. Its skilled staff, quality and reliable system and price–performance ratio were all effective in making Mecalux our choice.
