Smith’s to expand


Global engineering company, Dematic, will build a high bay warehouse for PepsiCo’s Australian snacks division, The Smith’s Snackfood Company, at Smith’s Regency Park manufacturing facility in Adelaide, South Australia.

The automated storage and retrieval system (ASRS) will consist of four new RapidStore Storage Retrieval Machines (SRMs), 30m high double deep pallet racking, pallet conveyors, automatic guided vehicles (AGVs), associated control systems, and Dematic’s Warehouse Control System (WCS).

The system will support Smith’s distribution network which operates out of the Regency Park manufacturing site.

David Rubie, Dematic’s manager of food and beverage, said the high bay warehouse is another step in its ongoing relationship with Smith’s.

“The Smith’s order is the second ANZ high bay warehouse project to integrate Dematic’s new, RapidStore SRMs, in conjunction with Australian manufactured Colby racking systems,” Rubie said.
