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


Central Power Systems (CPS) 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. BMH integrated a small system for Central Power Systems (CPS) in 1999, which led to CPS asking Bastian to help plan their move into a new, larger Distribution Center in Columbus, Ohio. BMH was charged with designing a system that would allow for future growth. BMH recommended the following key technologies: Hytrol conveyor, V Belt, and O-ring transfers ASAP Automated Order Routing (WCS), Batch Pick (List/Labels), Host Interface to existing WMS ASAP Pick-To-Light Technology Unarco Carton Flow BMH Controls (WCS) Interlake Pallet Rack Accusort Scanners BMH successfully delivered the project on-time and within budget despite a very tight schedule. We provided CPS with a slotting analysis for more efficient picking. The relocation services provided allowed for a successful transfer of existing equipment from CPS’s Alabama and Ohio facilities to the new Distribution Center. CPS is well positioned to meet their future growth goals. Click here for case study and webcast.
