Improving the Warehouse Performance by Retrofitting

With a retrofit, Klinkhammer checks your requirements and brings your old system or installation up to date such that the service life of your investment is extended. By replacing outdated computer and control systems and adapting them to the latest standard productivity, profitability and efficiency of your old installation will be increased. When the situation requires so, alteration and upgrading activities are carried out during operation without requiring any downtimes. By modernizing your old system you will additionally benefit from a later reduction of maintenance costs and energy savings thanks to modern energy management.


The first automated warehouses date back to the early sixties. Changing business needs, changing market requirements, updated safety and regulatory standards and constantly evolving technology - all this does not inevitably have to lead to an investment in an entirely new system or installation. In this respect, it is irrelevant who supplied the old system. When planning the retrofit of an existing installation no aspects will be omitted.
