A far cry from the old, outgrown storage facilities, the new building has a floor area of 4,336sq.m, equivalent to 17 tennis courts. Total volume is 42,000cu.m.

 

All under one roof, the building can accommodate 47,000 ‘line’ items or 850,000 individual items, with space to spare for future expansion, says the manufacturer. For larger items there is now 45 metres of cantilever racking and the amount of bulk racking has been doubled.

All parts are identified and located using a scan and bar code system. For greater efficiency and increased flow of parts through the building, the ‘goods in’ area is 60 per cent larger than before, the ‘packing’ area has been doubled, and ‘dispatch’ is 40 per cent bigger. The secure customs area for airfreight to Ireland has also been doubled.

 

The opening of the new parts warehouse follows the recent expansion of the worldwide Claas parts logistics centre at Hamm, Germany.
