Össur UK uses the Schaefer Storage & Picking System

SSI Schaefer has been working with Össur UK to design and install efficient storage and material handling solutions in its new warehousing facility based in Stockport.

Össur UK is a global leader in orthopaedics, producing award winning prosthetics, compression therapies, bracing and supports that make a real difference to people's mobility. The company adopts a policy of sustained investment in research and new technology, enabling it to produce some of the most effective, non-invasive mobility solutions on the market today.

SSI Schaefer has previously designed warehouse systems with Össur in Europe and the wide range of SSI manufactured products enables Össur to store and pick in an appropriate manner. At the new facility, SSI Schaefer designed a storage and material handling solution based upon Össur’s fast, medium and slow moving items to be picked.

This involved the installation of stable, robust, versatile and expandable pallet racking and pallet live storage based on the first-in first-out principle. SSI Schaefer also supplied both tilt and static shelving and numerous plastic storage containers of varying sizes to suit the products.

The project was completed earlier this year and the result is that Össur is delighted with the design and appearance of the SSI Schaefer equipment, which provides a highly efficient storage and picking system in its new warehouse.

Ken Harbron, northern regional manager for SSI Schaefer commented, “We were delighted to work with Össur on this project. We looked very closely at the storage requirements and picking priorities with Össur in their new UK warehouse and were able to provide the right effective and efficient solutions from the SSI Schaefer range of systems.”
