9 to 5 Seating Optimizes Facility with Raymond Handling Solutions
CHALLENGE: SIMPLE BUT AGGRESSIVE
9 to 5 Seating specializes in the design and manufacture of office seating for customers from major companies to schools and hospitals to "mom-and-pop" businesses.
In building a new warehouse and production facility, 9 to 5 Seating had a simple but aggressive goal: create capacity to quadruple production in a new production and warehouse facility that is LEED Gold certified.
SOLUTION: SMOOTH MATERIAL FLOW
The company joined forces with Raymond Handling Solutions, an authorized Raymond Sales and Service Center, to design the handling system.
Raymond Handling Solutions worked with the 9 to 5 Seating team to design a U-shaped material flow. The circulation consists of lift trucks receiving incoming raw materials and components, feeding the VNA racking system, delivering components to the pick module and moving finished good to shipping - all with Raymond lift trucks.
RESULT: MAXIMUM PRODUCTIVITY
The company is achieving its aims to boost efficiency substantially in the new facility. President Dara Mir, estimates that, in total, the handling process - including the lift trucks, conveyors and pick module - has increased productivity by more than 40 percent compared with the previous facility.
