Lynas Food Service expands with new tech

By Retail Technology | Monday January 25 2021 | UPDATED 25.01.21

Food wholesaler Lynas Food Service has added new intelligent materials handling equipment as it expands warehouse capacity

As a fast-growing company, Lynas was outgrowing its existing warehouses and had limited capacity to take on new customers and opportunities at its current rate. With a specific need for more pallet spaces, the company made the decision to expand its warehouse, creating an additional 4,00 ambient pallet spaces from a 75m x 30m x 15m extension. 

With additional warehouse space also came the additional need for machinery to support its expansion and to meet growing demands. As such, it turned to Jungheinrich to explore potential options and proceeded with two EKX 516 VNA trucks, the new generation of high-rise stackers. 

In addition to the VNA trucks, Jungheinrich also supplied the wholesaler with ten ERE 125 electric pallet trucks to deploy in its warehouses in Coleraine and Dublin, as well as counterbalance trucks and other manual handling trucks for the food outlets and meat plant.
