Manifattura Guarnizioni Colombo is a historic company in the Italian province of Bergamo.
Since 1911, it has been producing gaskets and sealing systems for machines and plants for industry.
It operates in many sectors: naval, food, steel, oil & gas and renewable energy.
The wide range of products in stock made it essential to switch from traditional racking to Modula vertical automatic warehouses.
Why did Manifattura Guarnizioni Colombo choose Modula?
Modula solutions allow more efficient stock management.
With the Modula WMS software, warehouses are able to track all incoming and outgoing articles.
With Modula, the status of the warehouse is available in real time, so reorders are optimised and the entire production flow gains.
In 2014, three Modula Lift MX50D with external bay, 5,300 mm high, were installed in the goods receiving area. This is mainly where components are stored.
In 2017, a further 13 Modula Sintes1.7, 4,300 mm high, were added to handle the finished product to be picked when the order is prepared for the end customer!
