RediRack, one of the UK’s leading suppliers of pallet racking, was delighted to learn it had won the UKWA ‘Technology and Innovation’ Award at the UKWA luncheon ceremony in London.

RediTechniX, which is a division of RediGroup, has developed a revolutionary automated pallet storage, retrieval and sequencing solution. The system is unlike any other products on the market, combining the patented RediLogX (OpitlogX inside) pallet buffer and sequencing system with ASRS technology which can increase the storage density of existing warehouses by up to 80%* – a truly amazing innovation that this award has recognised.

RediTechniX integrated vertical/horizontal transporters, conveyors and shuttles within the RediRack welded system and combined the solution with software that links directly into Warehouse Management Systems, allowing for complete control from a single workstation. Pallet throughput is massively increased by the system’s ability to deliver the retrieved pallets to the operator in the order they are required to floor level. All this reduces the need for material handling equipment and associated operating costs.

RediGroup’s Managing Director Andrew Forsythe is thrilled that the company has achieved this accolade for a product that he believes will revolutionise the industry; “This system is simply superb and the award recognises the work the team here has put in to make it a remarkable solution to our customers’ needs,” he commented. “The system has been installed with great success for Frederick’s Dairies in the North West where it operates at -28ºC within their 4,500m² cold store. By using the RediTechniX solution, we achieved a cost benefit to the customer which amounted to around a 30% saving in the total reduced construction costs against creating a building to house a conventional racking system. In addition, the system delivers a significant on-going operating cost saving, which is certainly something worth having.”

Terry Haigh, Operations Director at Fredericks Dairies backed up this achievement; “We needed to make maximum use of the space we had and the RediLogX system maximised the storage within the static racking RediRack installed. This meant that we got 13,500 pallets with this system against RediRack’s nearest competitor which was only offering 9,500 pallets. I was very confident in their ability to produce this on time and within budget and that’s exactly what they did.”

The award will sit proudly at the RediGroup’s Head Office where it will have pride of place.
