Testimonial: JBT Food & Dairy Systems
JBT Corporation develops and produces high-tech systems for the food and pharmaceutical industries. When switching from semi-automated to fully automated warehouse management, the Dutch division of the company was forced to reorganise its Kardex warehouse systems. They called upon the services of Jan De Graeve for this. Operational Spare Parts Manager Marc Stikvoort explains why.

“It was impossible to manually assign all parts to new locations. Jan De Graeve has developed software that calculates which type of locations are required and how stock can be stored there as efficiently as possible. These calculations are based on stock inventory lists and the results of the 3D measurement of all parts. We received a proposal from Jan for the layout of the trays, ordered our layout material and started preparing all the trays. Under Jan’s guidance, we then emptied our old warehouse and filled the new system in two and a half days.
Although it was an intensive process that I would not immediately want to go through again, I am very satisfied with the collaboration with Jan. He is kind, precise and capable and I would highly recommend him.”
