Workshop warehouses: at full throttle to the next age of logistics
Turbocharger manufacturer – short distances are the trump card

It's actually quite simple: the larger the warehouse, the more space it has to grow. But what if all the space has been used up? Then it's a case of optimising processes and increasing their efficiency. That is exactly what happened to Turbo-Mot in its specialist workshop for turbochargers.

The challenge: to extend the warehouse with visual flair

 

Reconditioned turbochargers are in demand. Cause for celebration for the East Westphalia-based company Turbo-Mot. But also for growing pains, as their storage system simply could not cope with annual volumes of 7500 turbochargers. The situation resulted in bottlenecks both in the warehouse and in work processes.

The solution: a two-storey shelving system in the corporate design

 

This is where SCHULTE Lagertechnik came into play. By planning and erecting a new, two-storey stock block, space was created to allow the company to grow once more. From goods receipt to collection, everything was integrated into two separate shelving systems, some of which was dust-proof. Distances were reduced, workstations were moved directly to the warehouse and employees could get their hands on everything quicker than before.


The new arrangement also sends out a signal to customers, as they see that order and cleanliness matter. Speaking of signals: the company red forms the primary colour of the storage system. As a result, everyone who enters the warehouse, finds themselves surrounded by the corporate design. Turbo-Mot displays a uniform overall appearance – that certainly makes an impression.
