Scandinavian Tobacco Group (STG), Denmark

For the Scandinavian Tobacco Group (STG)  space optimisation is continually under review. A question which STG frequently asks is: How can we maximise our available space and increase storage capacity? One of the solutions has been the installation of mobile pallet racking MOVO from Constructor.

Scandinavian Tobacco Group is the world’s largest manufacturer of cigars and pipe tobacco. STG operates internationally with affiliates in 20 countries and they sell tobacco products in more than 100 countries worldwide.

One of the biggest issues which faced STG was to optimise storage space, whilst ensuring a continous production flow was maintained, which would overcome capacity challenges during picking and sorting.

The Solution

STG approached Constructor to discuss various innovative storage solutions, Constructor finally recommended STG install a solution consisting of 4 MOVO systems to ensure a continuous flow in the production, thus avoiding bottle necks during picking and storing.

One of the major advantages of installing this solution has been the ability to integrate each MOVO system with a smoke detector. This ensures damage limitation if a fire was triggered, as the area would be isolated immediately, minimising stock damage. This is a key factor to condsider when storing any highly flammable products.
