Better service for the customers, shorter lead times and increased flexibility. A new fully automated saw center worth 32 MSEK is Uddeholm’s largest separate investment for warehouse and distribution in the modern Days.
Our (Uddeholm’s) goal is to be world-leading through every part of the chain, said Vice President and Logistics Manager Stefan Sjögren. Our customers’ needs are what guides us, which means that we always strive to be better than what is considered standard for the industry.
The fully automatic saw center is now being built at Uddeholm’s warehouse in Hagfors, Sweden. It includes two new saws with an automatic sorting system for orders up to 430 mm. The system will include 517 different stock compartments.
With this huge investment we can improve our service rate and our efficiency at our warehouse, Sjögren continues. Our customers will notice shorter lead times and more efficient deliveries as well as a possibility of tighter tolerances.
