Domax invests in modern solutions – new production & warehousing hall
In August 2015, the new Domax production & warehousing hall was handed over for use. The building construction started in July 2014 and was completed one year later, as scheduled. The newly created building is located at the company seat in Łężyce.
The project takes the area of close to 4 000 m2, with most of it taken by a warehouse for 6,000 pallet spaces! The new hall offers many benefits, one of the most important for our customers being the guarantee of goods' availability and significant reduction of their shipment time.
When the new hall was designed, the major objective was to increase the warehousing area for DMX, Velando and Grinding products. The number of pallet spaces grew by as much as 4,600 when compared to the previous warehouse. The design of the new hall envisaged also modernisation of the forwarding and packaging section. The building was equipped with an ergonomic warehousing system and cutting-edge solutions automating internal transport. To improve the goods' loading processes, the building got reloading docks and gates. Moreover, the internal roads infrastructure round the facility was reconstructed. To enable transport of large cargo, a manoeuvre yard was created with the area of 2,000 m2. The hall was adapted also to high OH&S standards.
The investment in the hall construction has already brought measurable effects. Commercial Director, Grzegorz Rząd, describes the benefits of transferring to a larger warehouse: "I must admit that after the new warehouse was opened, the punctuality of shipment improved and the number of errors related to the order performance was reduced significantly. A huge asset of the existing warehouse area is the ability to pick the so-called "custom orders" for a specific customer in dedicated areas until their are fully performed. We used to struggle with insufficient accessibility of goods while with the current area we stand a chance of improving the availability of our products significantly."
The second hall floor, besides office and sanitary rooms, has also a room for displaying fully loaded racks. To enable each customer visiting the company to get acquainted with a wide offer of Domax in detail, the connectors, screws, hinges, shelves and other products of DMX and Velano brands will be displayed soon on the area of about 100 m2.
This is not the end of Domax investments as future plans envisage adapting larger area for DMX connector production and extending the machine park.
