Kardex Remstar wins contract with National Joint Powers Alliance
Kardex Remstar has announced that it has signed an agreement with the National Joint Powers Alliance (NJPA).
The NJPA is a national public service agency that establishes an alliance between buyers and sellers for use by education, government and non-profits. Kardex Remstar teamed with Tennsco, a manufacturer of shelving, cabinets, lockers and moveable aisle systems to win the contract. The contract offering includes products from Tennsco, combined with automated storage and retrieval systems (ASRS) from Kardex Remstar.
NJPA’s cooperative contract is available to more than 50,000 member agencies, helping streamline the required purchasing process. As a municipal national contracting agency, NJPA establishes and provides nationally leveraged and competitively solicited purchasing contracts under the guidance of the Uniform Municipal Contracting Law. Joint Powers laws enable members to legally purchase through this storage contract.
Kardex Remstar products covered under this contract include: Lektriever vertical carousels, Megamat RS vertical carousels, Shuttle XP Vertical Lift Modules (VLM) and horizontal carousels. Kardex Remstar dynamic storage systems work on the “goods to person” principle, bringing all of the products directly to the operator with the push of a button. This automated picking process eliminates the need to walk and search for products. It also reduces risk of injury to the employee by removing the bending and reaching for items at a pick location, and improves worker safety and ergonomics, according to the company.
By eliminating walk and search time, the operator can focus solely on picking orders, and increase productivity. Integrated with pick to light technology and Power Pick Global inventory management software, the operator will be guided to the exact pick location, increasing accuracy up to 99.9 percent, according to the company.
Kardex Remstar products take advantage of wasted vertical space, converting it into ideal storage space. This can reduce the overall footprint by up to 85 percent. The reclaimed floor space can then be repurposed for other value-added activities.
The Kardex Remstar NJPA contract number is 040215-KRS.
Kardex Remstar, LLC, a company of the Kardex Group, is a provider of automated storage and retrieval systems for manufacturing, distribution, warehousing, offices and institutions.
