Broman Group continues to automate with Swisslog
Espoo 2022-05-06 – Two years ago, the Finnish Broman Group chose Swisslog as partner for its advanced automated logistics center in Kerava, thirty kilometers northeast of Helsinki. Now the time has come to more than double the size of the logistics center and Swisslog has once again been chosen as the supplier.
With the expansion of the warehouse, the current 21,000 square metres will be extended to a total of 46,000 square metres. With this major expansion, Broman Group will secure its storage capacity for many years to come.
"The highly automated warehouse in Kerava is equipped with the most advanced technology on the market. The new, expanded center will enable us to increase the number of product categories and the range in our online store. The center will also enable even faster handling and distribution of goods," says Petri Nietula, Supply Chain Director, Broman Group.
With the expansion, Broman Group's logistics center in Kerava will be extended with a pallet solution consisting of Vectura high-bay cranes, ProMove conveyor system and seven pick stations, as well as a light goods solution consisting of CarryPick robots and ten workstations. All this is controlled by SynQ WMS software. Previously, Swisslog has supplied the CycloneCarrier shuttle solution and a ProveMove conveyor system. Following the current expansion, the Broman Group has invested a total of 70 million euros in the logistics center.
"We are very proud and happy that Broman Group has entrusted us to deliver high quality automation again and to continue the great cooperation we started in 2019," says Christer Gustavsson, Project Manager, Swisslog.
The expansion of the warehouse has already started and the new facility is scheduled to be fully operational in early 2024.
