Global O-Ring and Seal, a leading supplier of o-rings, seals, and other sealing related products, was looking to move into a new facility and incorporate new, innovative solutions to have a more efficient picking process and a more reliable way to manage their inventory.
After a long, thoughtful search Global O-Ring and Seal determined that the most effective and cost efficient way to increase their storage capacity and picking efficiency, while decreasing their floor space, was to utilize a vertical storage solution manufactured in the USA by Modula.
Since the installation of their three (3) Modula ML50D VLMs, the way they store their inventory has completely changed. They are now able to monitor their stock levels in real time, speed up order execution, shipments, and stock replenishment operations, and they have the visibility required to make better inventory decisions for their customers.
As Jeff Korkowski, Vice President, Sales & Marketing, says: “I love the fact that we got the Modula connected to our ERP system, so there is a seamless transfer of an order from a customer to the operations team. That can make all the difference in the world for our customer.”
Moreover, with the installation of the 3 Modula vertical lift modules, they are now storing over 10,000 SKUs (approx. 12,000 ft2/ 1,148 m2 of traditional warehouse space) in less than 465 ft2 (43.2 m2) with their vertical warehouse, which will offer them ample room for future growth.
