Flinn Scientific Increases Efficiency with Pick Module System

Flinn Scientific supplies science equipment to schools and educational institutions across North America. Headquartered in Batavia, Illinois, they’ve been a leader in scientific education safety since 1977.

Their former facility was completely manual, so they contacted Bastian Solutions to find the right technologies to automate the warehouse. They are now able to handle double the line items with the automation, increasing efficiency and safety across the facility.
