Kimman Process Solutions provides automated sampling systems for custody transfer in the oil and gas industry. Up until recently, the company had a warehouse that was large, in the sense that the parts were spread over a large surface area. “In our new building, we replaced our shelving system with a vertical carousel system in order to use the functional surface space more efficiently”, explains CEO Andor Gyurik. “But we didn’t have the expertise to actually organise the change ourselves.”

“The supplier of the carousel system put us in touch with Jan. It was clear already from our first meeting that he had the expertise we were looking for and that – just as we had suspected – careful planning was key.
I think that Jan was a bit taken aback by our ambitious plan of getting the move done in just one month’s time. But he took up the challenge and delivered on every one of his promises. He had to work on a tight deadline, but so did we: we had plenty of homework of our own to do. Meanwhile, he kept a close eye on the progress. We received same-day feedback on the data we supplied. And Jan would call us first thing the next morning to discuss the next steps. He had a very good sense of how to keep things moving along.
Our warehouse has everything we wanted it to have, and it’s more efficient. The next step is to take a more thoughtful approach to managing our stock, which is possible thanks to the better overview that we now have.”
