Speedy Products case study

The Challenge

Following a period of rapid development, during which it acquired a major Chinese drapery hardware manufacturer, Speedy reviewed its supply chain operation and stocking procedures within the UK. Concluding that an overhaul of its current system was required, Speedy chose Dynamic Systems from a number of competitors to come up with an effective solution.

Outcome

The final design for the building sited a carton-live picking system on the second floor, creating 580 pick faces and 2230 total storage locations for tote bins containing accessories such as curtain rings and finials. The third floor contains a longspan shelving system for the storage and picking of around 32,000 curtain poles.

Our approach

The Dynamic Systems team has a very professional attitude and worked closely with our own people to design the ideal storage and picking system for our National Distribution Centre.

They approached what was a challenging brief in a positive and creative way and came up with a solution that really worked for us.
