BendPak has grown to be a dream 50 years in the making. During this half-century of evolving into the automotive equipment specialists we are today, our mission has been continually focused on improvement in all areas, including engineering and design, production and logistics, and of course, customer service.
A look inside our new shipping facility expansion:
Ever since our ribbon cutting ceremony earlier this year, we have been relocating over 5,000 part SKUs from previous housings to new designated bar-code bins in new warehouses. We have relocated almost the same amount in large equipment items, as well including every finished lift and wheel service product, not to mention the hundreds of other shop equipment items we stock.
Our new Total Warehouse Logistics (TWL) approach supports day-to-day operations in our multiple warehouses. All warehouse tasks are now managed in a real-time environment, supported through radio frequency data collection devices that are carried by our warehouse workers. The new wireless barcode scanners and mini-computers record all inventory and order processing transactions in real time. Warehouse productivity and workflow, including product movements, receiving, shipping, picking, counting and accuracy, are being improved and streamlined. This new era in BendPak’s history will result in greater efficiency and higher capability. We’ll be faster and fully automated.
It’s an honor for us to supply each and every one of you with our products. We’re keeping the fires lit around the clock, burning the midnight oil and then some, as we quickly become bigger and better than ever before. This entire process is going to make the best even better, so stay tuned for more big news from BendPak.
