Established in 1886 in Pelhrimov, Czech Republic, Agrostroj Pelhrimov (Agrostroj) has been providing North and South America, Europe, and Russia with a wide selection of specialized agricultural machinery for over a century. The sole manufacturer of agricultural machinery in the Czech Republic, Agrostroj builds agricultural machines and precise engineering tools in addition to partnering with other multi-national agricultural machinery companies such as Volvo, Mitsubishi, and Caterpillar. Agrostroj’s product output consists of 20% finished machinery, 13% engineering tools, and 67% joint collaboration projects. With over 900 employees and sales reaching 37 million Euros in 2005, Agrostroj is a widely recognized leader in its space. The organization prides itself on innovation in its products as well as the nature of its manufacturing process.
Agrostroj was expanding due to the ambitious projects it undertook, its commitment to meeting strict customer requirements, and the expansion of their manufacturing capacities. In order to accommodate their growing business, the organization sectioned off a 25,000 square meter area within their production facility to act as their new warehouse designed to store extra parts for the manufacturing area of the production facility. With a larger warehouse area and a greater number of stock items, the company realized their need for specialized software to manage inventory.
In 2005, Agrostroj turned to Czech Republic-based Accellos partner, Kodys, to help them find a solution for their warehousing needs. A specialist in implementing barcoding solutions, Kodys has been helping customers improve supply chain and logistics management for over 15 years.
Since implementing AccellosOne Warehouse, Agrostroj has seen a 50 percent increase in accuracy while cutting pick times in half. The organization has also seen a significant decrease in the number of errors occurring throughout the day’s processes, since all inventory movement is now tracked using RF barcodes. Accellos automatically logs all processes drastically reducing the possibility for human error.
