Red Rich Fruits
Operating since 1948, Red Rich Fruits is one of the largest apple and pear growers in the Australian agriculture industry.
They obtained a brand new state-of-the-art, 80m clear span shed, located in Coldstream Victoria.
Having supplied their finished produce storage systems for the past 25 years, Red Rich Fruits approached Bowen with a brief to help them optimise their warehouse storage in their new facility.
Following an extensive review process, our team of storage experts deployed a state-of-the-art Stow drive in racking system, enabling significant enhancements in the agriculture sector.
The end result was a highly efficient warehouse system delivered on time and aligned to Red Rich Fruit’s requirements
- Superior quality product used for high-density pallet storage in the chillers.
- The completed projects now processes 1.5 times more in volume, with greater ease. Bowen helped them ‘do more with less!’
Ridley Agriproducts is a major Australian provider of high-performance animal nutrition solutions. Bowen Storage has been providing warehouse solutions for the business for many years, starting in Lara Victoria and then supporting warehouse facilities in Pakenham, Terang and Bendigo.
Our team of storage experts has continued to provide Ridley with:
- Heavy-duty selective pallet racking
- Dangerous goods cages around their racking
- Pallet live racking systems
- Safety Auditing
The end result is a highly efficient, multi-facility warehouse system that’s aligned to Ridley’s requirements.
The Pakenham Pallet Live system was a first for Ridley and is now held as the benchmark storage solution for the company’s warehouses going forward.
Pacific Gold Macadamia
A major producer and exporter of macadamia kernel both in Australia, and internationally, Pacific Gold Macadamias required a storage solution for large bags of macadamias at their processing plant in Bundaberg.
The brief was to provide a high-quality, high-density pallet storage system designed around the existing warehouse parameters that would cope with the current and future stock holdings.
Bowen Storage worked within the existing warehouse to design a high-density pallet storage system that increased the storage capacity and improved stock handling efficiency.
High volumes of palletised bags of macadamias were catered for through installing a Stow drive-in pallet racking system that provided 564 additional pallet spaces. Storage racks were installed back to back to allow faster picking.
In order to minimise production downtime for Pacific Gold Macadamias, Bowen Storage completed the project over the holiday period.
The project was completed according to schedule and delays were minimised despite the unplanned interruption of a tropical cyclone that restricted road access to Bundaberg.
