Clint Engel -- Furniture Today, April 19, 2004
Bacova Guild Ltd., a manufacturer and supplier of accent rugs, floor mats and bathroom ensembles, recently embarked on a project to overhaul is 400,000-square-foot warehousing and distribution facility, located in Low Moor, Va.
The company is enhancing its warehousing-management system with automation, adding new conveyors, automated picking machinery and upgrading other features.
Also, Bacova Guild is reconfiguring the layout of the site to create more efficiency, especially for distribution.
"The single biggest effort is the addition of the automation of our warehousing-management system," said Dave Woods, general manager. "It allows us to better address customers' specific needs. It also streamlines our distribution costs and makes us more efficient."
