New pressure and flow brands added

With the integration of Zoedale into OEM Automatic, we are excited to welcome 16 new brands to our pressure, level and flow offering. The Zoedale brands specialise in products suitable for flow control applications, such as solenoid valves and actuated valves.

The capacity of the OEM warehouse increases

Two new Kardex machines have been installed in our warehouse, we now have 8 Kardex vertical storage systems. We have saved space for further stock capacity by investing in additional Kardex machines. Our warehouse is now our largest stock holding, offering 8,500 products from over 100 suppliers.

Plus, our warehouse is expanding!

Growth at OEM means more space is required, so we are starting warehouse expansion this summer! This expansion will give us the capacity to stock many more products.

The 2 new Kardex machines and warehouse extension will lead to:

  • 16,000 storage locations
  • Faster processes
  • Space-saving for enabled growth
  • Wider range and variety of products
  • A seamless process delivers greater service to OEM customers
  • Pick accuracy is 99%
