Testimonial: Circuit Foil Luxemburg
Circuit Foil in Wiltz, Luxembourg, is a worldwide developer and manufacturer of high-quality copper foil, mainly for the electronics and automotive industries. When they increased production capacity by 20% in 2021, it became necessary to optimise the warehouse. This was done by installing a new Vertical Lift Module, which was efficiently filled with Jan De Graeve’s eff-fill software.
- 1 x Kardex Shuttle, controlled by Fox4Work software.
Purchase & Warehouse Manager François Tourbach: “After the quotation was approved, Jan rented us a 3D measuring device with which we could measure all the items. That was very useful, because without measurement, the term ‘small’ or ‘large’ is pretty subjective.
Based on the measurement results, we got an idea of the percentage of items that would fit in the tower and Jan was able to determine how best to store the parts. When it was time to actually place the items, Jan came on site to help us get started. We were exceptionally well prepared: thanks to the labels that Jan had printed beforehand, we knew exactly where each piece had to go during the move. At that stage, it saved us a bunch of time. In addition, 90% of the full storage capacity is now being used, instead of 50%.
We are very satisfied with the optimisation of our warehouse. If there was one point we would approach differently, we would involve our production employees in the project more from the start, so that they would be immediately aware of the new warehouse layout later on. But as far as Jan’s service is concerned, we see nothing but advantages. His experience with other companies in various sectors allowed him to share best practices with us and reassure us about the use and benefits of our new warehouse system. Jan was also very accessible and proactive throughout the entire process. He was the driving force behind this project and ensured that our schedule was respected.”
