Enables narrower aisle widths
12 December 2012
Thetford supplies the camping, caravanning and leisure industry with mobile sanitary systems, refrigerators and cooking equipment. Its UK arm recently moved to a new 73,000ft2 manufacturing and warehousing facility in R
Key to this was the introduction of three electric Aisle-Master 2t capacity AM20 SHE articulated forklifts, which have replaced previously used counterbalance and reach trucks.
Racking from the old premises has been laid out in the new warehouse according to the Aisle-Masters' abilities and aisle-widths are now considerably narrower than before, resulting in a total of 842 available pallet spaces. The trucks work offloading components and placing them near production lines, taking finished goods to the racking and high level bulk store, picking to order and loading delivery trucks.
