Warehouse automation for the Mechanical industry: Kerr Compressor

Kerr Compressor Engineers are the sole authorised industrial distributor of Kaeser and HPC Air Compressors in Scotland. They have been providing a reliable, professional and quality service to a wide range of companies in Scotland for over 35 years.

As part of this service, they maintain a large, parts holding within their East Kilbride Head Office. The stores area had become too small and the layout wasn’t ideal for the type and quantity of parts they needed to store.

Optimize floor space with Modula vertical warehouses

A revamp was required, to help ensure that they could cope with an increase in parts stock, as well as allowing them to carefully manage their inventory to help ensure a fast, efficient parts service to their customers and engineers.

Kerr Compressors decided to invest in Vertical Storage Equipment to help them efficiently manage their parts as well as dramatically reduce the footprint required to hold their stock, which ranges from small components up to larger boxed items.

After careful research, Modula Storage Solutions Ltd. was chosen as the ideal partner for their stores project. Two Modula MC50D Vertical Lift Systems were installed along with Modula WMS software, integrated with their host system. This solution has given Kerr Compressors vital, real time stock management information as well as saving much needed space in the warehouse area. There is also additional capacity for more parts in the future
