APC Storage Solutions SA, through its partnership with Mecalux, is a leading global specialist design and manufacturer of storage and warehouse solutions. Managing director, Fred Albrecht talks about the company’s technology and success.

Fred Albrecht Storage SolutionsA new automated warehouse is being launched in South Africa every year, this in addition to APC Storage Solutions SA’s consistent offering of the latest European trending warehouse and storage solutions to local companies, some of which have been developed specifically for the African market based on local input.

The 16 year partnership with Mecalux has seen the local company install an average of 10 000 t of storage systems per year. This equates to 150 000 t in more than 5 000 projects across South Africa and Southern Africa, which has contributed to APC Storage Solutions SA’s organic growth. Beginning with head office premises in Johannesburg and installing quality small solid angle shelving, the company has opened three additional branches in South Africa’s main provinces that design, install and service comprehensive storage and automated storage solutions around the country. Additionally, APC Storage Solutions SA has done a large number of conventional racking and shelving projects as well as semi-automated and automated installations in southern Africa, and continues to service countries in this region.

As the first South African storage and warehouse solutions’ company to import technologically advanced European racking and shelving, dating back to 2000, APC Storage Solutions SA has set the benchmark in warehouse and storage system quality in South Africa. “Mecalux’s superior quality across its range and the current technology incorporated into its automated solutions gives customers a longer lasting warehouse solution that ultimately lowers the overall cost of storage ownership. This lower total cost of ownership, effects savings across a company’s entire supply chain, which in turn improves our customers’ bottom-line over the long-term, albeit from a marginally higher upfront cost,” says APC Storage Solutions SA managing director, Fred Albrecht.
