With a surge in sales and a series of strategic acquisitions, Hillman found itself at a pivotal juncture. The question that loomed large was whether to persist with incremental improvements to the current infrastructure or take a bold step towards a revolutionary transformation. The imperative, however, was clear: Hillman had to uphold its unwavering commitment to delivering top-tier customer service. This drove the pressing need for the implementation of a cutting-edge Warehouse Management System (WMS).
This new solution had to possess the extraordinary capability to seamlessly fulfill client orders from both the pre-existing and freshly-acquired facilities, ensuring a harmonious integration.
Our team of experts provided a plan and solution to match the forecasted growth for the next 5 to 7 years. Working in conjunction with other trades, the facility expansion was completed, the internal materials handling equipment system was implemented, and a WMS was designed and successfully brought online.
This endeavor resulted in a modernized distribution facility that perfectly matched the Manufacturer’s expansion goals.
By incorporating cutting-edge pick-to-light technology and introducing the state-of-the-art WMS, the Manufacturer realized a staggering 61% increase in average lines processed per person per hour. This remarkable achievement catapulted the business into a new era of productivity and ensured they were well-equipped to navigate their path of relentless growth with unwavering precision.
