Optibelt was developing plans to grow its business, from it already established eight production bases across six countries.
To ensure it was firmly set up for expansion, Optibelt recognised a need to upgrade its facility in Romania. The group strategy is viewed in generations rather than quarterly or yearly segments, and it's this business philosophy that has set the company in good stead with a strong brand and high quality goods.
Optibelt needed a flexible storage solution that would provide suitable storage of palletised goods and tyres – while fully optimising all available warehouse space and offering individual access to each pallet.
Partnering with Dexion offered Opitbelt a cost-effective, high-density storage solution, which still ensured easy access to individual pallets.
The MOVO solution enabled Optibelt to save space in its warehouse, while reducing costs and ensuring there was no need to purchase additional equipment for the facility.
This semi-automated solution presented Optibelt with a complete and flexible system, which was future-proofed for its increasing stock levels.

- Future-proofed supply chain able to ensure speedy order-picking and dispatch.
- Cost-efficient and speedy implementation.
