Selective pallet racking for packaging giant
San Miguel Yamamura Asia Corporation
San Miguel Yamamura Asia Corp (SMY) is a packaging plant in Cavite, Philippines, jointly owned by food and beverage conglomerate San Miguel Corporation and Japan’s glass packaging company Nihon Yamamura Glass Co. Having started with one glass plant in 1938, the company has expanded its business to provide not only glass packaging products but other formats like metal, paper, composites, plastics and PET to serve the packaging requirements of a wide variety of industries, including the beverage, food, pharmaceutical, personal & household care industries.
To cater for the expansion, it has upgraded its warehouse facilities upwards. The company has since grown steadily from being a pioneer to now being one of the biggest in the region and having the most modern facility in South-east Asia for producing glass jars and bottles.
At the finished storage warehouse, SSI SCHAEFER’s Selective Pallet Racking extend across almost the entire length of the 125.64-metre warehouse. At 11 metres high, it makes full use of the ceiling height of 12 metres to provide a total of 3,996 pallet locations.
The bottom tier can take a maximum weight of 1.7 tonnes, which can safely accommodate export products with pallet weights of between 1.4 and 1.7 tonnes. Lighter pallets for domestic shipment are accommodated on upper tiers, which have a maximum weight of 1 tonne per pallet. Given the length of the racking system, a drive through has been provided to facilitate forklift movement.
For the two storerooms, the SSI SCHAEFER Selective Pallet Racking provide a total of 466 pallet locations. In addition Storeroom 2 is equipped with the Interlock Mezzanine Shelving providing 576 shelving locations for smaller items.
