Pitacs delivers with new distribution system

Published:  02 December, 2010

LEIGHTON BUZZARD: Following a move to spacious new offices in October this year, Pitacs has introduced a new distribution system for its Ultraheat and Aeon radiator brands.

The new warehouse facilities are fully digital ensuring maximum efficiency, speed and reliability for customers.


Factory deliveries are unloaded inside the 100 000sqft warehousing facility situated behind the glass-fronted office in Milton Keynes. The barcoded pallets are taken straight from the lorries to their designated area in the 9m high warehouse and the exact position of the pallet/consignment is scanned and logged onto the Pitacs system.


When an order is taken, whether for a single item or several dozen, the information and position of each item is fed straight to screens on the fork lift trucks, making the picking process simple and efficient.


Managing director, Saffet Kalender of Pitacs, says: “The new distribution system is at the heart of our logistical operations and introducing it to our new warehouse consolidates our position as a manufacturer of integrity and reliability. The system ensures that our customers receive the very best delivery service from us – accurate, speedy, professional and with significantly reduced risk of damage. We believe that it is in a league of its own in the industry.”
