2 years after the fire ravaged the Eighteen Sound warehouse facility, the new building and offices are open and fully operational! January saw the opening of the new 600sq m building which was redesigned to increase productivity and flexibility in the warehousing and Quality Control area. In August the new state-of-the-art anechoic chamber and test center, came on line, as well. Today, the warehousing section is loaded with raw goods and parts, and is providing much needed relief to what had become a space management exercise, since the fire.
This new building is complemented by another 1700sq m of warehousing, storage, shipping and receiving that has been accessed by acquiring the space directly adjacent to the Production area. This has streamlined the flow process throughout the buildings, and allows for easier access to key production parts. It also contributes to additional staging space for Shipping and Receiving.
18 Sound’s new facility is another example of the growth and spectacular development happening at the Company headquarters in Reggio Emilia, Italy, and around the world!!
