SIBO, Veghel, NL

The Hänel storage systems are a perfect match for the guiding principles followed by SIBO: Be reliable, innovative and performance-oriented!

SIBO BV, founded in 1993, is a specialized wholesaler of plastic pipe systems and watering systems, not to mention equipment for aquaculture and swimming pools. The company supplies products to installation professionals and retailers in over 50 countries. 

When moving to its new headquarters on Doornhoek in Veghel, SIBO also integrated six Hänel Lean-Lifts® in its order distribution center. Some 5,000 different items are stored at this site. 

By using HänelSoft® to connect the Hänel Lean-Lifts® to its SAP ERP system, SIBO is able to process customer orders much faster and with more flexibility. For example, orders received before noon are filled and shipped on the same day. 

The principle of “goods to the operator” and the Hänel Pick-o-Light® system deliver decisive advantages from this solution:

• 25% increase in order picking speed
• Virtually error-free order picking
• Space savings of 200m2
