FEATURED NEWS


Rocky Brands’ new putwalls by Lightning Pick, a Matthews Automation Solutions’ brand, featured in December 2017 Modern Materials Handling cover story.

In “System Report: Rocky Brands Sees the Light,” the cover story in the December 2017 issue, Modern Materials Handling magazine toured the company’s redesigned distribution center. With a business that transitioned from shipping wholesale orders of as many as 4,000 pairs of shoes to one distribution center at a time to shipping individual e-commerce orders to individual customers, the operation needed to shift to a more nimble approach in its handling and order fulfillment systems.

To enable faster turnarounds while lowering labor costs associated with piece picking for web-based orders, Rocky Brands implemented a variety of new solutions. Critically, a set of putwalls driven by pick-to-light semi-automated picking technology from Lightning Pick has revolutionized the sorting and packing area.

“We looked at our changing order profile and knew that we had to be quicker and that we had to keep our labor costs down,” explains Director of Distribution Services Kevin Koster in the article. “We did not consider an automated goods-to-person solution, but stuck with what we knew would work, which was improving our sortation system and adding to our packing capabilities. Lights were pretty much always on the table.”

Then

In 1850, John Dixon Matthews emigrated from Sheffield, England to open a small engraving shop in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He became a pre-eminent provider of high-quality identification products and services, including stamping dies, branding irons, ornate engravings and stamps for wooden crates. His company flourished, converting from a partnership to a corporation in 1902.

The corporation’s growth continued throughout the 20th century. As service offerings diversified, the company separated itself into different operating units, including Memorialization Products, Graphics Imaging and Marking Products. With the addition of several best-of-breed automation and fulfillment brands, the industrial printing and marking solutions the company provided through its Marking Products segment has evolved into Matthews Automation Solutions.
