BITO Storage Systems is continuing to invest in its Experience Centre
– the company’s noted showroom and testing facility located at its
Nuneaton headquarters, which this month will see a working
demonstration of the PROmotion shuttle go live.
This will give visitors to the centre a chance to see for themselves
how this innovative battery-powered pallet handling vehicle feeds
pallets in and out of the racking lane in which it is operating.
Visitors will get a clear view of how the system can provide smooth
material flow and immediate product availability with maximum storage
volume utilisation, which are critical for logistics productivity and
Edward Hutchison, MD at BITO says: "The successful Experience Centre
has seen an big increase in visitor numbers and we are continuing to
make investments, such as this installation of a working demonstration
of the PROmotion shuttle. This will provide the ideal opportunity for
people to see this innovative shuttle solution working and to
investigate the benefits they can reap. A visit to the centre will
also offer a great opportunity to see and investigate a full range of
storage and order picking solutions."
The development of the Experience Centre builds on BITO’s strong
performance over the past year, as Hutchison explains: "BITO achieved
10 per cent growth last year and profitability improved by 20 per
cent, which accounted for 5 per cent of turnover. Good, steady growth
on the profitability of the business demonstrates BITO’s stability as
