Flexi Systems Division to offer warehouse planning advice at IMHX

28 January 2013

Articulated forklift truck technology pioneer Flexi Narrow Aisle will use IMHX 2013 to introduce its new Warehouse Systems Division.

The new Division has been launched to offer a comprehensive range of warehouse planning and design consultancy services to the logistics and materials handling industry.

"Flexi Warehouse Systems will offer impartial advice on a broad spectrum of warehouse based intralogistics solutions. It’s aim will be to offer the most space efficient and cost effective system for each application – even if the solution does not involve articulated or VNA trucks,” explains John Maguire, Flexi Narrow Aisle’s sales and marketing director.

John Maguire adds: "Using warehouse planning and throughput simulation software and drawing on the many years’ experience of the Flexi Warehouse Systems development team, the Flexi Warehouse Systems Division will deliver tailored and impartial input and advice to any intralogistics development process.”

There will be a dedicated Flexi Warehouse Systems stand as part of the 3PL Pavilion in  Hall 17 featuring live demonstrations of the application of computer aided design in modern high bay warehouses.

In addition to the launch of its Warehouse Systems Division, Flexi Narrow Aisle will highlight the range of models from its top selling articulated forklift and VNA truck systems, including the latest technological developments to optimize and increase product movements and create a safer working environment in modern warehouses..

Flexi Narrow Aisle was formed in 1976 as a provider of forklift based space saving solutions for the warehousing industry; the company developed the Flexi articulated truck in 1990’s since which time many thousands of units have been sold throughout the world to customers operating in hugely diverse industries.

With their ability to operate in aisleways as narrow as 1.6 metres – articulated to 220 degrees - and lift pallet loads to heights of over 12 metres, Flexis can save warehouse operators at least 30 per cent of their storage costs. Furthermore, the ability to unload pallets from road vehicles or goods in marshalling areas and deliver loads directly to the storage racks can reduce existing handling costs by a further 50 per cent.

One of the latest additions to the Flexi range – the Flexi VNA – was named ‘Les coups de coeur’ – the ‘Best in Show-Innovation Material Handling’ product at the recent Manutention International Materials Handling and Intralogistics exhibition in Paris, France.

"IMHX will be an excellent opportunity for visitors to take a close look at the latest Flexi articulated forklift truck technology and systems and discover for themselves the long list of benefits that Flexi Warehouse Systems can offer,” adds John Maguire.
