New warehouse setup in the KAPSTO picking area
A high storage density with limited space requirements and fast access to the goods - these were the goals of the new warehouse setup in the KAPSTO picking area of Lohner Kunststoffwerk Pöppelmann GmbH & Co. KG. This target was achieved with the flexible META MULTILINE order picking and flow racking systems and the structured arrangement of the articles.
For almost 70 years, Pöppelmann has developed into one of the leading manufacturers in the plastics processing industry with five production sites and 550 injection moulding machines, thermoforming plants and extruders. In more than 90 countries the quality 'made by Pöppelmann' is appreciated, thanks to the more than 2,000 qualified employees. Pöppelmann supplies commercial horticulture with plant pots and growing systems and is also a partner of many companies from the mechanical and apparatus engineering, automotive, electrical, solar, food, chemical, pharmaceutical, cosmetics and medical industries, as well as surface technology and the fittings industry.
The company is divided into four divisions: KAPSTO, K-TECH, FAMAC and TEKU. The KAPSTO protective elements (caps and plugs) provide optimum protection during production, storage and transport. The standard range with over 3,000 designs is generally available from stock. In addition, Pöppelmann can offer approx. 2,000 further versions from the special range, which can be produced quickly and cost-effectively from existing tools. The picking zone in this division has now been restructured.
