Puratos maintains its growth with a new high-capacity warehouse

09 Jan 2017

Mecalux will set up a new 29 m high automated clad-rack warehouse for Puratos, the breads and baked goods manufacturer, in the town of Sils (Girona). Since arriving to Spain in 1962, the company has always sought out the collaboration of Mecalux when looking for the most appropriate solutions to fulfil its logistical needs.

The warehouse, consisting of three aisles with double-deep racking, will have a capacity for more than 10,000 pallets of two different sizes: 800 x 1,000 x 1,200 mm and 1,200 mm. The facility will be directly linked to the production centre by means of a tunnel. The storage temperature will be controlled to guarantee the optimum condition of the goods; two aisles must be kept at 20 °C and one at 14 °C.

Within the supply, the Mecalux Easy WMS warehouse management system will be implemented. It will be permanently connected to the customer's ERP to exchange orders and information, aiming for the maximum improvement of warehouse throughput.
