Johnson Controls is the world's largest fire and security company - so at its numerous European warehouses, it needs to make sure an effective and safe material flow is always running.
That's why UniCarriers has been a long-term partner of the company. UniCarriers has gone from supplying a single order picker to the company in 1990, to now being the sole truck supplier to all nine of the company's European fire production distribution centres.
As well the forklifts, Johnson Controls benefits from a number of other solutions from the UniCarriers 360° concept - tools, like the Logistics Analyser, health and safety, from the safety package supplied with all trucks, fleet information from the Vehicle and Operation Management (VOM) system, and a service program which ensures high uptime.
Building a speedy and efficient operation from scratch at a brand-new high-bay warehouse.
Logistics analysis to determine the best set-up, high-lifting TERGO® UMS reach trucks to handle the high racks, and a TERGO® UFW four-way reach truck for handling long goods.
A 30% improvement in picking capacity, and equipment and training that can live up to the company's 'Zero Harm' health and safety policy.
"You can see from the forklift designs that a great deal of expertise has gone into their development. Our drivers praise features such as the comfortable mini-steering wheel and the control elements which can be operated with the tip of a finger."
