After only 15 months, Debrunner Acifer has completed construction on a new logistics centre in Kölliken (AG) for products in the areas of fastening technology, tools, machines and occupational safety & health. The automated small parts warehouse accommodates some 40,000 items. Today, 30 per cent of orders are already placed via the web shop, and its popularity is on the rise.
Our automated small parts warehouse uses state-of-the-art technology to enable tremendous process optimisation for the company’s logistics department,” says Thomas Widmer, Managing Director in Kölliken. The new high-bay warehouse has a height of 16 metres and houses automated small parts storage made up of 57,700 boxes, divided into seven alleys with space for 5,500 pallets where the products are stored until shipping. The fully electronic system travels six metres per second as it picks the ordered material.
