Duvel Moortgat

The Duvel project is a good example of collaboration between MDO Group's various subsidiaries, namely MDO Move and MDO Technics. We handled the move to their new central warehouse and the installation of a vertical lift system.

The project started back in March, even before the corona perils had begun. Duvel Moortgat wanted to centralise their 5 small parts warehouses (which were spread across their site in Puurs) into 1 large warehouse. The freed up space was needed for the construction of a new production line. Besides moving the warehouses, it was also necessary to digitise the articles, as this was not yet the case and because the smaller pieces would be stored in a vertical lift system.

Imes Dexis, our partner for all kinds of moving and warehouse projects, is one of Duvel's biggest suppliers for different types of parts. They set up Duvel's new warehouse, using an ICAM Silo lift as a storage system for the smaller parts. To make sure the relocation and digitisation of the parts, as well as the construction and setting up of the lift went smoothly, they called on our services.

MDO Move first created a temporary warehouse with our moving vans, moved all parts there and created a digital list of all articles. Then MDO Technics took care of the assembly of ICAM's vertical lift system. Since this is ICAM's very first lift in Belgium, they were supported by an Italian technician from ICAM itself.

Finally, it was back to MDO Move to move all parts from the temporary warehouse to the lift. For this, the parts list first had to be uploaded into the machine's software and an optimal layout had to be found with the existing layout material.

We were also asked to develop labels and take high-quality photos of each article. The photos were then also uploaded into the lift's software; this helps in the search for the right item.

The project is a very good example of successful cooperation between MDO Move and MDO Technics. Both subsidiaries of MDO Group complement each other perfectly in projects of this type!
