Project Data

Object: Central warehouse of Blumenbecker Industriebedarf, Beckum
Bearing size: 3500 qm with partial chaotic bearing principle
Used META products: 2-storey META CLIP shelving system with 230 / 150 kg shelves (5500 shelves), extension planned for 2016
MULTIPAL pallet racking system with up to 5 levels, up to 3to shelf load and 10to bay load, complete with chipboard floors, some with pedestal racks


The old central warehouse in Soest consisted of several buildings with a storage area of 1300 sqm. Picking was very time-consuming and the space was no longer sufficient. The relocation to Beckum was carried out with the aim of optimising the work processes and guaranteeing fast delivery times for the approx. 35,000 articles.

Customer Statement

"The flexibility of the systems enables us to store the articles according to customer requirements. If a customer needs an item several times a week, it is logistically placed in the warehouse system in such a way that fast delivery is possible," says Sebastian Rustige, Content Manager. "Being able to present the racking systems as reference objects for the resale business in our own central warehouse is a benefit for us and our customers. The geographical proximity, the excellent contact, the flexible implementation of META enabled an optimal result within a very short time".
