Sistema engages Dexion to design, integrate and install New Zealand’s most advanced warehouse system
Leading plastic container designer and manufacturer Sistema has engaged storage and materials handling company Dexion to design, integrate and install New Zealand’s most advanced integrated warehouse system.
Dexion’s Automated Storage and Retrieval System (AS/RS) and Realtime Distribution System (RDS) warehouse management software will be at the heart of Sistema’s new multi million dollar mega-site being built at The Landing Business Park at Auckland International Airport.
The site will be New Zealand’s largest privately owned manufacturing facility covering 25 hectares. Sistema is a leading manufactured goods exporter with millions of customers in 82 countries worldwide.
Sistema managing director Brendan Lindsay said Dexion’s system at Sistema’s new facility will better enable the company to service emerging new contracts to supply its plastic containers to leading retailers in Europe and the United States.
“Dexion will be installing a fully automated, scalable solution that will enable us to achieve our growth targets.
“Using Dexion’s AS/RS our warehousing operations will be fully integrated with our manufacturing. Our products will come straight off the manufacturing line into assembly and storage and we will use Dexion’s RDS software to manage the process.
“Dexion’s solution will allow 100 pallets in and 100 pallets out per hour. It will start loading out containers before people turn up to work – it is high density, high throughput, accurate, flexible and will operate 24x7. By installing this system we are building for the future and will be ready for rapid growth of our business.”
Installation at Sistema’s new facility will begin in March and is due to be completed in October 2016.
