What You Will Learn

With the #1 branded hamburger roll in the United States, Martin's Famous Pastry Shoppe, Inc. sees a boost in sales during the summertime. While good for business, the seasonal spike presented major challenges for its manual warehouse in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. In addition to inefficiencies due to the need to hand-pick and prep orders hours in advance, the facility struggled with space constraints as well as concerns over employee safety. This seminar will discuss how the bread and roll manufacturer addressed these challenges by implementing an end-to-end automated solution which included AS/RS from Westfalia Technologies combined with automated layer-picking through Cimcorp Automation ltd. By automating, the company has been able to reduce its space usage by 50 percent and improve efficiency so orders can be prepared within one hour of dispatch. Martin's Famous Pastry Shoppe, Inc. has also been able to reduce the facility's workforce by 30 percent, minimize employee safety risks and increase order by 95 percent.
