Facet, as part of a program of expansion and continuous improvement of business performance, has opened a new business unit dedicated to the distribution logistic.
The new site, alive since the reopening after the summer factory closure of August, is based in Orbassano just a few Km away from the Collegno main plant; it occupies a surface of 6.500 square meters and has an external vehicular circulation suitable to support the flow of very large trucks.
Particular care was taken to optimize all processes through the use of very sophisticated operational management software (WMS), to manage the communication of information to operators in real time by Terminals in Radio Frequency and intuitive systems to perform all the material handling adopting the latest generation of forklifts and order pickers. The packaging workbenches have been designed to maximize ergonomics and safety and use very advanced terminals and scanners.
Through this investment Facet is consolidating all packaging and shipping activities, that were spread over two different plants, in one single site, increasing efficiency to optimize customer orders deliveries.
Facet is planning to use the space that became available in the central site of Collegno for new production lines that the R&D department are developing.
