SSI Schaefer finalises fit-out

SSI Schaefer has finalised the complete fit-out of a fully integrated, operating warehouse in Rushden, Northamptonshire, which will be run by Exel on behalf of publisher Harcourt Education.

In a contract worth more than a million pounds, the project has brought together the full range of SSI Schaefer products to provide a free-flowing integrated warehouse facility. Schaefer products implemented into the warehouse include; PR600 Narrow Aisle Pallet Racking, Regal 3000 Shelving, a large timber-decked Mezzanine Floor, Powered Conveyors and ASRS Pickomats.

The Narrow Aisle Pallet installation will accommodate over 30,000 pallets 14m high, providing a buffer stock for the pick face shelving and the ASRS.

Located on the first floor of the mezzanine, the shelving, systematised for multi-location storage, facilitates quick handling.
