Client: Aermec Spa
Sector: air conditioning systems
Established in 1961 in Bevilacqua in the province of Verona, Aermec is one of the world's leading companies in the production of air conditioning equipment for domestic, industrial and commercial use. Part of the Giordano Riello International Group, Aermec supplies customers all over the world through its 6 foreign companies and a network of 70 international distributors. Today it has more than 700 employees.
When designing and manufacturing its products and systems, Aermec focuses on every single detail with the aim to respect the environment, reduce pollution, save energy, preserve health, and improve well-being. These values are also firmly shared within the company, where the commitment to the safety and health of employees comes first. It is exactly for this reason that the company has decided to adapt the racking systems inside its long-standing Bevilacqua warehouse and make them earthquake-resistant, and has asked the Ferretto Group to develop this important project.
The work of a good logistics partner never ends with the installation. Indeed, it is precisely from that moment that the challenge to ensure maximum warehouse efficiency and continuous technological improvement begins. A challenge that also, and above all, involves continuous support and consulting to the customer. The work done for Aermec is proof of this. The internal technical department of the Ferretto Group has in fact carried out a study on the already existing racking at the Aermec facilitiy in Verona. In particular, the components to be replaced were identified and the necessary interventions aimed at making the structure resistant in the event of seismic events were defined.
The results of the study therefore guided the redevelopment and modernization project: the racking was completely dismantled; the frames were replaced with similar elements and the insertion of cross bracing sets completed the structure in compliance with anti-seismic regulations; finally, the system was reassembled, re-utilizing the existing beams.
Thanks to the work of the Ferretto Group, Aermec was able to intervene on the existing structure, thus optimizing the investment, and now has a safer and more versatile industrial racking system suitable for storing products and items of different weights and sizes.
