Material Handling Process Warehouse Improvement
To achieve its simple but aggressive goal – to create capacity to quadruple production in a new LEED Gold® certified facility – 9to5 Seating teamed up with Raymond Handling Solutions. The integrated material handling system included automated conveyors, very narrow aisle (vna) storage and efficient Raymond forklifts chosen specifically for the process design. As a result of the innovative material flow, 9 to 5 Seating increased productivity by more than 40 percent compared with the previous facility, and reduced the number of handling touches by about four.
