Concern: Lack of Material Handling System 

A manufacturer of insulation and fiberglass composites needed a storage solution for their 34,000 sq. ft. warehouse. The company’s SKUs range in size and shape and they stored many of their products on the floor. This caused a lot of wasted vertical space as well as wasted time trying to locate items for picking. They wanted to eliminate this issue by building a new material handling system that is customized to their range of products. Additionally, the company wanted to optimize their layout by differentiating the storage area and production area. 

Solution: Integrating Racking System Types 

REB project designers created a layout that optimized the flow of traffic to and from the storage and production areas. The storage area included a material handling system to house their varied products.  

The material handling system integrated three types of racking. A 3-deep push back system was installed to store products that were shipped palletized. Carton flow rack was included to store smaller parts, including maintenance parts and tools. Selective rack was integrated above the carton flow rack to store pallets to replenish the carton flow. 

Outcome: Defined Material Handling System 

Areas for storage and production are now distinguished, maximizing operations in each area. Additionally, palletized items and small parts are stored on a material handling system that integrates multiple rack types to optimize product flow.
