Wels, 26. June 2012 – Modern trade, technology and service company ZITEC entrusts TGW with the installation of an automated mini-load warehouse in Plattling, Germany.

ZITEC, headquartered in Plattling, Bavaria, is a modern trade, technology and service company offering a high-quality retail range in the areas of bearing, drive and fluid technology as well as technical machine elements for maintenance and engineering. More than 100,000 items of bearing, drive and fluid technology are immediately available from stock. Fast shipping, technical service and commercial service complete the company’s portfolio. Since April 2012, ZITEC has been responsible for the German market of the European technical trading company IPH (International Parts Holding) as central leading entity.

With more than 900 million Euros total revenue, ZITEC and IPH rank among the Top 3 industrial service providers in the field of mechanical spare parts in Germany and Europe. As a modern, integrated supplier, the logistics requirements regarding storage, order throughput times and picking rates have increased significantly.

Therefore, ZITEC placed an order with TGW to implement an automated mini-load storage system. TGW has already been cooperating intensely with ZITEC and designed the solution via a planning order. The IT system will be implemented as blackbox solution including TGW CI_LOG material flow controls and warehouse management system with a blackbox interface to SAP R/3 WM. Furthermore, TGW will implement a system including eight Mustang Evolution cranes with Combi Telescope as well as extensive tote and carton conveyor equipment for picking, packing and consolidation installed on two levels. Exclusively TGW Commander will be used as controls system.

TGW appreciates the order with high added value containing the complete mechanical, controls and IT equipment.
