Virto Group, a leading company and a benchmark in the production and distribution of deep-frozen vegetables for the retail and food service industry, has relied on AR Racking to equip the new 4,660 m2 freezing chamber located in Segovia (Spain).
AR Racking has installed a compact semi-automated pallet racking solution that uses motorized satellite shuttles that autonomously perform the movements inside the rack. This system is designed for warehouses with a high turnover since it allows a continuous automatized loading and unloading of the pallets through a remote-control system.
The installed system has a useful height of 15 m and a total capacity of 10,520 europallet units that will be stored at a temperature of -24ºC. In addition to offering an optimal use of space and available height, the new storage system minimizes the risk of accidents (since operators do not have to pass through the aisles), improves stock control and reduces maintenance costs.
Miguel Angel Falces, Managing Director of Ultracongelados del Duero (a firm part of the Virto Group), assures that “AR Racking's compact high-density racking solution allows us to take full advantage of the space available in the freezing chamber and to be more efficient in controlling and moving the stored loads while maintaining the overall quality of our products".
"In AR Racking we offer our clients a maximum adaptability to both the characteristics of the product and the specific needs of the project. The semi-automatic pallet racking system is a solution that fits perfectly to extreme environmental conditions”, says Xabier Rica, AR Racking’s Sales Manager. “Our competence and expertise in the assembly process, together with a strict management of deadlines and unforeseen events, have led us to reduce the execution time from 6 to 8 weeks, thereby achieving full customer satisfaction", adds Josu Monllor, AR Racking’s Project Manager.
