Who is Using Hänel for Parts Storage?

#1 Cochran Automotive, PA – Automotive Parts at the Push of a Button

Car Dealership Parts StorageIn 2011 and 2012, Cochran completely renovated its Buick/GMC dealership in Robinson Township, Pennsylvania. The goal was to improve efficiency and the appearance of the dealership to make the customer experience more appealing.

For better utilization of space in the building, Cochran decided to install a Hänel Lean-Lift®. The Lean-Lift® was integrated in the existing structure so that no building modifications were necessary. The result speaks for itself!

The parts and service area is now a bright, neat and convenient workplace. Customers are served quickly and efficiently at separate sales counters. Another counter provides the parts needed in the service center.

Most of the parts in stock are available at the push of a button. Climbing steps and lengthy searches to retrieve parts are things of the past.  More and more car dealerships in the United States are profiting from Hänel solutions!

Porsche-Zentrum Nuremberg-Fürth-Erlangen, Germany. Efficient spare parts storage in the service department at the Porsche Center Nuremberg-Fürth-Erlangen.

Direct reception of cars, computer diagnostics and automation have increased the productivity of automotive service centers over the years. However, keeping an ample supply of spare parts on hand still requires considerable space. This is where Hänel systems offer decisive advantages!

The Hänel Lean-Lift® neatly stores large numbers of parts within a small footprint thanks to its vertical design concept.  Valuable time is saved When a vehicle is scheduled for service, the shop manager can check the inventory to see if all the items required for service or repairs are in stock. These items can be picked and sorted in advance to save time otherwise spent waiting for parts delivery.

Even large components like engine blocks, transmissions or catalytic converters can be stored in the Lean-Lift®. There is no need to transport such components from so-called ‘external warehouses’ that are not nearby. This considerably increases the throughput of vehicles serviced each day.
