Logistics expert Dynamic Systems has completed a new warehouse layout for dishwashing equipment manufacturer Winterhalter. The German-owned company is the world’s leading supplier of commercial dishwashers and glass washers that feature cutting-edge, energy-saving technology.
Winterhalter sells 3000 machines a year worldwide through a network of distributors and its UK headquarters is based in Milton Keynes. With business growing steadily, the UK company needed more storage capacity and briefed Dynamic Systems to look at achieving this through a new layout of the existing warehouse area.
Dynamic Systems’ brief was to rearrange the racking within the warehouse, in the first instance to generate additional space to store machines awaiting delivery and achieve a tidier working environment. In addition, Winterhalter wanted to create a secure area for the storage of spare parts, thus improving stock control, and install a 150m2 mezzanine floor for accessory storage.
Ciaran Trainor, Winterhalter’s Warehouse Manager, explains why Dynamic Systems was the right choice for the project: "Not only was their price right, but we also acknowledged the importance of Dynamic Systems’ close attention to detail. Installation took a month to complete and they were very professional and easy to work with throughout. The installation team worked around us and at weekends to fit in with our requirements."
Peter Hunt, Project Manager for Dynamic Systems, confirms the success of the job: "The results have been very pleasing – the new warehouse layout has provided 20% more storage capacity within the same floor area, as well as creating more space to improve manoeuvrability for fork trucks."
Winterhalter Limited has been in the UK for 30 years and is based in Milton Keynes. The family-owned company uses state-of-the-art technology to produce the most popular commercial dishwashing equipment in the world, supplying pubs and clubs, hospitals, prisons, schools, offices, restaurants and supermarkets, including many leading high street names.
Dynamic Systems has built an impressive reputation for providing bespoke solutions to help clients achieve the most cost-effective warehouse and logistics operations and improve their profitability.
