WITRON-Meijer

More and more dynamism, flexibility and agility are required of a warehouse or distribution center. This is only possible if such a facility is equipped with extremely dynamic warehouse and order picking systems. This is precisely what our relation WITRON specializes in.

Hyperdynamic warehouse
WITRON took charge of a greenfield project for the Meijer corporation: a chain of supercenters, or in other words, hypermarkets. Of course, hypermarkets cannot exist without a hyperdynamic distribution center to ensure fast and constant supply.

That Meijer distribution center rose in Tipp City, Ohio. WITRON engaged NEDCON for this project. This allowed us to more or less repeat, as in 2016 we delivered a similar project for WITRON and Meijer, in Lansing, Michigan.

Lansing was a good dry run for this even more complex project in Tipp City. One that demanded the utmost from our engineers. The complete design consists of a fine-tuning of a wide range of different elements. These are reflected in the features of this project.
