• J. König GmbH

    A warehouse solution tailored to a diverse product portfolio


Our customer

The J. König GmbH in Karlsruhe is a family business in the 4th generation. The company produces and sells tools for natural stone fabricators, stonemasons and sculptors. The product portfolio ranges from small stone drills to angle grinders and bulky transport racks.

Customer requirements

    • The company is expanding rapidly and continues to do so. To prepare for the future, a new logistics centre was built.
    • The new storage room is to be used optimally.
    • There is a faster, smoother material flow necessary.
    • The project had to be implemented within a tight timetable.

The BITO Solution

    • BITO Pallet live storage racking with integrated pallet buffer on the higher levels.

    » BITO has planned and implemented a flexible, space & time saving solution for the tool manufacturer.

    • Carton flow shelves at operator reach height

    » On the floor level, carton live storage with straight flow shelves, creating a First-in First-out (FIFO) operation, was integrated into the pallet racks.

    • Mesh cladding for safety at work

    » To protect the employees from falling goods, mesh cladding was installed at the rear of the pallet racking runs.

    • Mezzanine floor with shelving units

    » Above the carton live storage levels, BITO installed a shelving supported mezzanine floor providing sufficient space for products not fitting in the carton live racks or in shelving. Access to the floor is by stairs and the goods are loaded onto the floor via the pallet gate.

On-site application

    • Euro pallets are stored in the BITO pallet racking.
    • High turnover products are provided on the lower levels of the system.
    • The tool manufacturer stores slow-moving products in the shelving units.
    • The mezzanine floor above the shelving units accommodates bulky goods.

Customer benefits

    • The racking system with strict separation of the loading and the picking side increases staff safety.
    • The system is perfectly matched to the diverse product portfolio of the company.
    • This storage solution ensures a fast order throughput and thus high efficiency.

What our customers say

The strict separation of the service aisles for product loading and retrieval increases operational efficiency.
