Ricola (CH)


The Ricola Company’s conveying and storage system in Laufen, Switzerland, has been in operation for years and serves as replenishment storage for the production department and as the shipping department for finished products. To date the 6-aisle storage facility has been operated using 3 automatic, fixed aisle stacker cranes as well as one manually controlled unit capable of manipulating curves. To be better equipped to handle the increasing demand for the popular confectionery products, Ricola decided to drastically modernize its intra-company logistics.
