The medium-sized company C+C Krug headquartered in Ottendorf-Okrilla, Saxony, Germany, was founded in 1991 and specialises in plastic electroplating. Sophisticated coating systems are offered, from parts construction to sample processing to serial production. C+C Krug produces coating systems for automobile interior and exterior in high gloss, as well as customised in matt tones.
Due to a positive sales development, the production volume of C+C Krug increased considerably in the past year. The number of projects rose and therefore stock also increased because more raw materials had to be available. The existing warehouse could no longer accommodate the necessary stock.
The construction of the new building had several objectives. Gaining more space for raw material, finding suitable, modern warehouse equipment for the large number of items and making processes in warehouse and production more efficient, ideally using semi-automation.
SSI SCHAEFER presented the customer three different logistics concepts, based on a manual, semi-automated or automated solution. C+C Krug opted for a solution consisting of three SSI LOGIMAT Vertical Lift Modules, a bin and carton conveying system, two WEASEL automated guided vehicles (AGV) and two transfer locations. The warehouse concept has been designed for expansion to be carried out over various construction stages.
