The Supply Chain Consulting Group Designs Warehouse Layouts For Fenner Drives
Fenner Drives is one of the world’s leading producers of heavyweight belting using PVC, fabric and steel reinforced rubber and Fenner Drives are a leader in reinforced polymer technology.
Fenner Drives wanted to move from the existing operational site into a new single storage, manufacturing and office facility within a given radius of their existing operation, with the new facility providing capacity to meet 3 year forecasted business growth.
The Supply Chain and Logistics Consultants at The Supply Chain Consulting Group (SCCG) undertook a comprehensive review of operations including warehousing, procurement, sales order processing and sales and distribution activities. This ensured that the recommendations and strategies provided the optimal solution to support the increased activities and business growth plans.
Utilising the SCCG in-house CAD systems, the Specialist Consultants designed an optimised and fully costed facility layout and develop optimised workflow for current state and future state operations dependant on growth expectations. The project also included follow-up site visits to ensure that the layout and installation of storage equipment – pallet racking, shelving etc – in the new facility met the design specification requirements.
