The customer, an industrial film producer, had limited storage and product flow issues caused by product mix complexity and change.
After conducting a current product flow analysis, DAK recommended rotating the layout of the facility 180-degrees in a phased approach. While we completely changed the layout, we also worked with a fire suppression contractor to bring the facility up to code—while never being without fire protection. Finally, we replaced old, damaged racking with new selective racking and drive-in racking and installed custom wood rub rails to prevent future damage.
By using their current racking system and making the necessary repairs, a cost effective solution was completed. A 66% increase in pallet positions was realized by rotating the layout and using only 60% new materials. The 180-degree shift improved their product flow, removing friction points from their process.
