KMP

Company presentation

KM Products Europe is a global supplier and distributor of engine parts for Caterpillar, Komatsu, Cummins, Detroit and Navistar International. Storing items as diverse in size, weight and shape as crankshafts, bearings, belts, cylinder heads, piston rings, gaskets, pumps, fans, filters, cooler and hydraulic components – with fast, effi cient picking essential to customer service – presents a constant challenge.

Problem 

The dilemma for KM Products was that a large number of pallets were only a quarter or half full and even using beams at different levels, a signifi cant amount fl oor space was wasted. As space was limited, the Couzens, Modula dealer, installation team dismantled a goods hoist and modifi ed a mezzanine to make room for the Modula. Other works included taking down and reassembling a single bay of pallet racking and reducing the size of the canteen to allow for maintenance access around the mezzanine columns.
