Vadals Ikon Group is a family-owned business supplying a range of specialised, high-quality products to butchers, greengrocers, supermarkets and other sections of the food industry since 1987. The company handles a broad range of local and imported products ranging from packaging, clothing, knives and saws to a multitude of glazes, marinades and condiments. Vadals recently moved into a new, purpose-built facility in Richlands, southwest of Brisbane, that incorporates both a showroom and a warehouse.
Tailoring the warehouse to effortlessly handle a range of products was a crucial part of establishing an efficient new space. The business is oriented to manual handling with products picked, stored and dispatched, and Vadals needed material handling equipment that would be the right fit for each application. The company also hoped to boost productivity and safety in their fast-paced warehouse, all while getting the most out of their equipment.
