Toronto, ON — Noble is giving its warehouses a makeover. The Ont-based wholesaler introduces a new, fully-automated approach to its warehouses with its AutoStore system.
According to Noble in a press release, the picking and fulfillment system was designed to maximize warehouse space and minimize inefficiencies through automated robots programmed to collect orders.
“Driven by our 30-year commitment to helping our customers succeed, AutoStore is faster, more accurate and will help us offer a wider range of products to the trades,” said Jim Anderson, general manager at Noble. “The volume of products you can stock in a small footprint with AutoStore far exceeds anything else on the market. In our case, we can fit 21,000 SKUs in less than 5,000 sq. ft, dramatically impacting the amount of inventory our teammates can quickly supply to our clients.”
The fully operational warehouse is located at Noble’s Jane Street branch in Toronto and was developed in partnership with Dematic, an automated supply chain specialist.
Noble will offer a tour of its AutoStore during its 30-year anniversary customer appreciation BBQ and tradeshow event on June 23.
