The CLIENT: The Quaker Oats Company Gatorade Bottling Operation
The PROJECT: Spare parts storage and retrieval system
The CHALLENGE: Quaker Oats™ parts storage warehouse needed a more efficient and secure way to retrieve spare parts.
The SOLUTION: WEPCO systems engineers installed two Modula Vertical Lift Modules (VLMs) which provided a space-efficient and access-controlled way to retrieve mission-critical spare parts for the Gatorade™ bottling operation.
This installation was one of the first VLM systems to include pick-to-display graphical user interface technology. Digital photos of the parts are stored in the inventory database. The picture menu can be used to select parts or to verify selected part numbers.
"WEPCO has supplied various materials handling equipment and systems to Quaker Oats in support of our Gatorade Bottling Operation. The most recent was a Modula VLM manufactured by System Storage Solutions for spare parts storage and retrieval. I was extremely pleased with the entire process from order to installation. It went a lot better than I had envisioned. Your guys did an excellent job."
