Positioning Central Power Systems for Future Growth in a New Distribution Center

Central Power Systems distributes small engine service parts and outdoor power equipment through a network of 6000 registered service dealers in several states throughout the United States and the Bahamas.

As an existing customer of Bastian Solutions, Central Power had outgrown their current location and needed more room for growth. Bastian Solutions provided the new conveyor system, the interface to the existing WMS, Exacta warehouse control system with conveyor routing, Pick to Light for order fulfillment, pallet rack, shelving, pack stations, and carton flow rack.
