Customised solution reduces waste, saves time and improves efficiency
The Dutch installation contractor P. de Vries Installatietechnieken BV was commissioned for the installation work for phase 1 of East Tower, a building of 108 student housing studios in Leeuwarden, Holland. Together with Solar Sales and Sales Development, they were looking for a sustainable solution to supply the needed material and for assistance on simplifying the logistics process and limiting the waste flow on the construction site, reducing the use of paper, cardboard and plastic.
”We constantly need to become faster and cheaper. These are the demands we meet from our customers who are met with the same expectations. So in a country like Denmark, where various costs are higher, we need to run a more intelligent production. And that is what we wanted from our collaboration with Solar.”Karl-Peter Andersen, CEO of Selektro
Achieving optimum logistics with a TCO approach
Danish electronics company Selektro has accomplished a general performance improvement for the entire business, partly due to a supply chain solution from Solar. Today, the solution consists of a stock management system with approx. 1200 article numbers, Solar Kit deliveries for projects both here in Denmark and at their subcontractor in Poland.
The Solar Kit service, where materials of different sorts are packed in sensible wrapping and specially labelled, means that Selektro employees don’t waste time sorting the products. Everything is delivered so that it suits the project in question. This means that you can start the actual work much faster.
“We believe that the time of the installers is much better spent on assembling more products, than unwrapping materials”, says Karl Peter Andersen.
For instance, if Selektro is to fabricate certain panels or cabinets, which require 100 different components, then all 100 components are delivered as one kit under one article number. Instead of having to purchase them separately, place them on shelves and attach article numbers to them, this service saves them plenty of time and storage space.
Selektro also has a Solar Kanban solution which means that they can accomplish the jobs of the company with much fewer employees. Read more about Kanban under Inventory Management.
Preassembly by Solar
Preassembly means that we will assemble the components for you. So in stead of having for instance, a radiator delivered in parts, you’ll receive it ready for installation.
Imagine an apartment building where you know just how many radiators you need and whether the thermostat should be placed to the right or left. You’ll save a bunch of man hours if the elements are delivered assembled, enabling you to move on quickly to other projects.
- Reduce man hours on site
- Optimise efficiency
- Less disposal
This service means that you can have your deliveries marked and labelled according to your needs and specifications.
Marking and labelling are adjusted based on product type, place of delivery or other specifications. And this goes for materials from our central warehouses as well as special order goods.
Special labelling may also entail a certain quality of the label itself. For example, if you work on an offshore facility, the label needs to be resistant to both salt and water.
- Simplified internal distribution with your own labels
- Delivery contents are easy to deduct
- Efficient goods reception
With this service, you’ll receive a box that contains a product assortment of your choice and in suitable wrapping. We’ll remove the original wrapping from the materials to save you the time and trouble.
Solar Kit provides you a lot of value in combination with special labelling and preassembly.
Imagine you receive all electrical materials for a bathroom in a new apartment building in a Kit box. We’ll mark each box with the apartment number according to the building plan and deliveries will follow the progression of the construction. Maybe you’ll need weekly deliveries per storey, daily deliveries per storey or weekly deliveries per building? Whatever you need, we’ll make it fit your schedule in order to achieve a smooth and perfectly timed experience.
- All necessary materials gathered in one place. No more looking through different boxes to find what you need.
- Progress ensured with assembled materials delivered.
- Reduces the number of contacts you need to encounter on the construction site.
- All materials are unwrapped, which saves you time and ensures that you don’t have to deal with disposal.
