Daifuku awarded automated warehouse contract for UK’s leading pet food manufacturer

Daifuku awarded automated warehouse contract for UK’s leading pet food manufacturer

Daifuku, the global leader in warehouse automation, has been awarded a prestigious contract to supply warehouse automation to GA Pet Food Partners’ Ingredients Kitchen, a state of the art, high grade nutrition production facility at Bretherton Lancashire.

As part of the project, Daifuku will provide stacker cranes in the ‘Larder’ and ‘Pantry’ storage areas of the food preparation plant which covers an area in excess of 20,000m2. Raw ingredients will be transported within the facility using Daifuku’s renowned STV (sorting transfer vehicles) high speed pallet transport system.

The award of the project was the result of a close collaboration between Daifuku and GA Pet Food Partners during the initial planning of the project. Installation of the warehouse automation system will be complete later in 2018, with ‘go-live’ and full production at the Ingredients Kitchen commencing in 2019.
