FLOWSTORE SYSTEMS STORY

THE DEVELOPMENT OF LEAN MANUFACTURING SOLUTIONS

FlowStore Systems has been the only dedicated UK manufacturer of carton flow systems since 1984. The company has continued to develop as industrial needs have evolved greatly since then.  


In 1993 FlowStore also became the first UK company to use tubular construction systems originating from Japanese Kaizen and Lean manufacturing specialists. These can solve all kinds of Lean manufacturing storage, assembly and production line requirements, using steel and aluminium tubes, connecting joints, roller tracks and accessories. They permit great flexibility and re-usability.  


In 2005 FlowStore went into partnership with leading worldwide manufacturer G.S. Ace Industry Co. Ltd, our own brand FlowTube has grown to be a market leader across many industries. These include automotive, aerospace, automation, electronics, white goods, engineering and many others.

FLOWSTORE - BACK IN THE DAY!

CARTON LIVE STORAGE

Through the ’80s, ’90s and the ’00s Flowstore Systems also supplied and manufactured pallet live storage and pallet push back systems alongside its carton flow pick systems. We designed and built rack-supported multi-tier order picking systems, pick-tunnels and pick-to-conveyor systems.  


Working alongside system integrators and automation specialists in materials handling projects for major industrial organisations and high street retailers has provided a sound basis for our project management skills.

MEETING FUTURE NEEDS

We don’t stand still…

We regularly review our products, making sure they are relevant to today’s environments and needs. When we spot changing requirements, we’ve never been afraid to update our offerings. That’s what keeps us relevant and motivated.  

What we don’t change is our commitment to reliability, service and quality.  

We now apply FlowStore Systems’ lean manufacturing experiences and techniques into some of the most advanced warehouse, distribution and manufacture operations in the UK – including Industry 4.0 - and have a growing presence in Belgium and The Netherlands.
