The main product lines include screws for wood and structural work, plugs and anchors, joining pieces for wood, chemical products, hand tools, fixing elements and hardware for furniture.
SSI Schaefer was contracted by the company to gradually transform its storage and distribution warehouse based in Terlano (BZ), Italy, from a manual facility into a new, partially automated system.
