The Nilkamal sales team received an enquiry for Double Depp Racking for storage of finished goods with a Pantograph MHE. The client was one of the leading sea food processing industries. They are also one of the leading exporters of premium sea food like prawns and shrimps.
They have multiple factories in and around Vizag. They already had installed DDPSS and Pantograph systems. Nilkamal is associated with them for their IP requirements for more than 2 decades.
However, they had floated a RFQ for racks and suitable MHE for their new plant at Nellore, South AP. They used us to prepare a basic designs and specification. After a lot of persuasion, we got a hearing from their MD and we wanted to utilize the opportunity to break all barriers. The RFQ had 1640 PP as the expectation. The Aisle space was approx.. 3200~3400 mm.
During the discussion, we came to know that their maintenance expenses were very high for the MHE. The MD assured us that if we could suggest a cost effective system, the order would be ours. We worked on the layout by changing the orientation of the wooden pallet. Due to that we would achieve 304 more pallet positions, with 2200 mm Aisle space. The additional areas saved were used for storage. We changed the fork entry of the pallet to 1200 mm instead of 900 mm. At
450mm load centre, the MHE will perform more efficiently. The additional space saved out of this pallet orientation and reduced Aisle space for our Aisle Master
contributed to another 25% more storage space ( 180 tons more of FG) We also gave reference of other installations in Vizag, made the MD, talk to our other customers directly to gather their feedback.
Absolute team work by Nilkamal, quick response by the pre-sales team and commercial freedom From HO, we cracked this deal and received the order.
