Webco Chemical is a manufacturer and distributor of liquid and powder cleaning products located in Dudley, MA. Since its establishment in 1966, the third generation, family-run company continues to serve the dairy farm industry. Additionally, the company manufactures and distributes personal cleaning products such as body washes, hand soaps and more.
The Webco Chemical warehouse is home to a wide range of packaged products with a wide variety of container shapes and sizes. This variability made it difficult to find the right racking solution and added to the complexity of the order picking process, often resulting in parts of the operation coming to a complete standstill. The company has continued to experience rapid growth and needed to improve efficiency in their storage and picking operations in order to handle more product and more customers. Management committed to making the necessary changes but had resigned themselves to working with multiple suppliers to make it happen.
