Products range from pedestrian stacker trucks up to the Combi-SC Straddle Carrier and Mobile Gantry ranges which can lift loads of 200,000lbs and over. In between are dozens of models with various load capacities and power options, which work inside and out and in all weather conditions.

For space saving warehousing operations, the Aisle Master VNA articulated trucks work in aisle widths of 6ft, enabling more racking to be installed for a potential doubling of storage density. Impressive lift heights of 49ft also ensure optimum use of all vertical space. The ability to operate indoors and out removes the need for double handling, resulting in safer, faster load cycles and “truck to rack” operations.

Combilift also offers a service that represents excellent added value in the form of a free and no obligation warehouse layout and material flow analyses. CEO and Co-founder Martin McVicar: “Space is one of the most valuable assets our customers possess, and we can show them how to optimize this. Given the continued demand for warehouse space coupled with ever rising business costs, this is now more important than ever.”

DAK’s U.S patent pending K3 In-rack Sprinkler Guards attach directly to the beams instead of the sprinkler system piping, avoiding sprinkler system damage.  The K3 heavy duty design protects from impacts of up to 5000lbs protecting equipment and inventory from unnecessary water damage and compromise.

We designed these U.S patent pending sprinkler guards with 25 years of warehouse safety & fire suppression experience under our belt, and we are proud to say there is no other product on the market like them!

Then, once we’ve manufactured your products in our Minnesota factory, we also install them with our on-staff team of safety experts. This hassle-free operation eliminates the stress associated with finding numerous sources (manufacturers, contractors, subcontractors, and installers) – we do it all.

Safety Rail Company’s versatile product lineup works together to ensure total compliance and safety.

Sentry Protection Products

Always on Guard

Behind every business is a story on how it all began. At Sentry Protection Products, we have a story too. Here’s how it all got started. An Ohio building contractor noticed that many of his customers were asking him to repair or replace columns in their facilities that were damaged from forklift hits. He thought there should be a solution other than repair or replacement. Together with the owner of a plastic molding company, a prototype of a column protector was created. That protector was Column Sentry.

Sentry Protection Products formed to market the new product. Since 1988, thousands of Column Sentry products have been sold around the world. From the original product, the line of impact resistant products has grown to include Rack Sentry® and Rack Sentry® CONTOUR rack protectors; Column Sentry FIT and Concrete Wrap™ column protectors; Corner Sentry™ building corner protector; Park Sentry® line of products for parking applications’ and the Collision Sentry® Corner Pro, a collision warning system designed to prevent accidents at blind cormer intersections.

Our impact resistant and collision warning products are sold and distributed world wide and have been recognized for their innovation and quality by many industry organizations.

Westfalia Technologies, Inc.

Stress-Free Solutions with Westfalia Automated Systems

Automation is the secret to creating the flexibility and reliability needed to accommodate the demands of the supply chain now and into the future. Automated storage/retrieval systems (AS/RS) are an ideal solution, maximizing storage density and optimizing throughput in warehouses across industries.

Westfalia’s automated systems:

Maximize available storage space in existing structures
Minimize overall building footprint up to 50% versus conventional warehouses
Reduce energy use, labor and product damage costs
Increase inventory accuracy and customer service

AS/RS combined with a warehouse execution system (WES), like Savanna.NET®, help to better control material flow and order fulfillment processes, providing accurate, real-time views of inventory and order management. AS/RS and WES are designed to be scalable, as demand and number of SKUs grow for companies of all sizes. In fact, designing the right solution should begin with raw order data, to establish peak performance requirements and projections for future growth plans. Westfalia’s comprehensive data analyses prior to design provide an in-depth, fresh look into how a business operates. These analyses include 3D simulations or models and SKU churn visualizations to find the practical solutions that will actually solve material handling challenges.

With the right plan, team, software, and technology in place, AS/RS typically has a less than five-year payback period and a 25-year lifespan—the ideal future-proof solution.

Investment in Westfalia’s automated systems is a venture into long term peace of mind. When your warehouse is ready to take the leap into automation, Westfalia’s team of experts is prepared to take you there. So take a deep breath, and let’s dive in.
