Bearing Wholesalers growth over the last 15 years has been achieved by maintaining focus on what are the critical elements of business excellence.
Bearing Wholesalers needed to increase its warehouse storage capacity and order fulfillment rate, and chose Metalsistem Australia 's Super 1-2-3 two tier shelving system to do so.
The company's existing shelving was unable to be extended or to support a multi tier system safely, so the old shelving was relocated for slow moving stock items, and the Super 1-2-3 system was installed in its place.
The overall structure was five metres in height, taking full advantage of the warehouse height, consisting of seven bays deep and seven aisles across with 13 shelf levels from floor to second tier separated by perforated steel walkways.
A sliding gate for pallet access was also installed to move stock efficiently to the upper floor.
The Super 1-2-3 two tier shelving system proved to be very successful to condense and increase storage, while allowing rapid order picking and improved despatch timing.
Bearing Wholesalers has found Metalsistem Super 1-2-3 two tier structure to be most efficient, and once completed the company decided to double the installation by connecting a second two tier structure, in that way increasing capacity again.
