One example of a European customer is FlexiForce which designs, manufactures, and supplies components for manufacturers of overhead doors. The small to medium-sized businesses supplied by FlexiForce were at one time found solely in the Netherlands. Now they are located throughout Europe and beyond. To assist in growing the Hungarian operation, FlexiForce installed a pick-to-light system from Pcdata, just as it did some years previously in its operation in Barneveld, the Netherlands.
FlexiForce began using pick-to-light in its Barneveld operation as early as 2004. The supplier of components for overhead doors uses the order picking technology for assembling hardware sets containing bolts, nuts, screws, bearing plates, and other pieces of hardware.
Like FlexiForce, some North American firms are not opt for the comprehensive Distrib PTL system, but for the standard PickStar solution instead. While the system is different, the results have been just as compelling.
