A family-owned company established in 1950, Baumann Paper is a wholesale distributor of paper, plastic and other sanitary supplies for food service, grocery, retail and healthcare industries. Located in Lexington, Kentucky, the company ships product throughout a five-state service area.
Baumann Paper moves more than 4,000 different products throughout its 6,967-square-metre (75,000-square-foot) warehouse over 1½ daily shifts, five days a week. As the facility has expanded over the years, warehouse additions have created a floor with numerous seams. With an aging warehouse and mixed forklift fleet, the company needed to increase uptime and improve the dependability of its fleet. Baumann Paper also needed a reliable training partner to help train its operators to become safer and more productive.
