As part of a new logistics strategy, Triumph International AG has decided to expand its existing distribution center in Wiener Neustadt, Austria. TGW Logistics Group in Wels, Austria, has been engaged to implement a new solution.
Austrian manufacturer of lingerie and underwear Triumph International AG operates a central warehouse with connected quality control and packing facilities. Triumph has placed an order with TGW to implement a new rack shelf picking area as an element of their reorganized logistics strategy.
New technologies for delicate goods
The existing site includes five halls and stretches over two floors - each built in different ways. Due to the multiple and varied structural conditions, planning the extension was very challenging. As a result, the new layout will include 2.2 miles (3.5 kilometers) of TGW KingDrive® conveyor equipment to connect the existing carton warehouse with the new rack shelf picking area. The installation also includes two TGW Commissioner automated storage and retrieval systems (AS/RS) to be used as sorter towers, and ergonomic workstations that minimize worker strain while supporting faster workflow. The total solution optimizes the existing space, while the conveyor system reduces employees’ walking times for increased productivity. By keeping picking and replenishment separated, the new system will ensure faster item availability and greater operational flexibility.
The existing operation will remain functional during the installation of the new equipment, notes Markus Augeneder, Managing Director at TGW Systems Integration: "Together with Triumph we have created a solution that optimally complements the existing installation. We are glad that Triumph will complete this strategically important project with TGW and put its trust in our experts.”
