Gourmet, the pioneer firm in the manufacture of food products such as condiments, soups and creams, pastries, sweet sauces and essences, among others, has once again expanded its facilities in Malloco (Peñaflor), in Chile.
In order to continue developing culinary products of distinguished quality for consumers in Chile, Mexico, Ecuador, Panama, Costa Rica and Peru, Gourmet has expanded its raw material warehouse and finished product warehouse in order to continue offering the best selection of products in its sector.
AR Racking, a worldwide provider of industrial storage solutions with a delegation in Santiago de Chile, began working on the expansion of Gourmet’s warehouse 5 years ago. This project has been completed with the installation of the Adjustable pallet racking system (AR PAL) in the more than 13,000 m2 distributed in the two mentioned warehouses.
With the installation of this system for palletized loading, 2,340 positions have been achieved in the space that stores the raw material and 1,210 positions in the finished product warehouse. The AR PAL system installed allows great versatility due to its ability to adapt to any type of load unit or forklift truck with immediate access, it makes possible to quickly locate each pallet and it creates a direct access to all cargo units.
Claudio Ramírez, Head of Logistics and Distribution at Gourmet says that "at Gourmet we want to be up to the standards of a demanding consumer and we are committed to innovation as a fundamental pillar. This is why we have been trusting AR Racking’s professionalism for years, because their storage systems ensure that we exceed our storage expectations".
For his part, Juan Antonio Valdebenito, AR Racking’s Project Manager in Chile, says that "for AR Racking, the fact that customers like Gourmet trust each of their expansion projects to our company is an honour because it means that they not only trust our products, they also trust our technical advice. Our team has projected in this last extension a relocation of the previous storage systems in addition to the installation of the Adjustable pallet racking system".
The robustness and resistance of the AR Racking storage systems are guaranteed by the compliance with the Chilean standard NCH 2369, which establishes the requirements for the seismic design of structures and industrial facilities.
