Ferguson Enterprises, a wholesale distributor of residential and commercial plumbing supplies and pipe, valves and fittings in the U.S., enlisted the help of Tompkins Solutions to develop a new DC that consolidates multiple facilities. Located in Aurora, Colorado, the new facility enables Ferguson to reduce its per unit processing costs and improve service levels. The 435,000-square-foot distribution centre employs pick modules for cases and eaches, a dual-sided shipping sorter and a 51,000-bin AutoStore automated storage and retrieval system (ASRS). Ferguson has also engaged Tompkins to develop a greenfield facility in Chandler, Arizona, as well as the design and retrofit of several other DCs throughout the U.S.
