Weekend Wall-to-Wall Warehouse Stocktake of Production Line Parts

A multi country organisation with 160+ employees, required the support of RGIS. The company manufactures and sells meat slicers, knives and other kitchen and food processing equipment in 100 countries. With all design, marketing and product management activities based in Italy, the company is one of the most important European players in the food processing equipment business, both in the professional and consumer retail markets.


The company has a warehouse of materials and parts used in the production lines to manufacture the food processing equipment. The equipment manufacturer needed a solution to complete a wall-to-wall stocktake, so required RGIS to provide the following:

  • Complete a wall-to-wall count of the warehouse
  • Identify variances to expected stock levels
  • Update stock on hand levels for all stock
  • Count all parts in the warehouse, including small items such as screws, caps and bolts


The equipment manufacturer partnered with RGIS to complete the wall-to-wall warehouse stocktake project, and RGIS provided the following:

  • Scheduled a team of 15 experienced RGIS auditors to count the warehouse over two days
  • The customer provided files which contained all EAN codes of the products, and the locations of the products in the warehouse
  • RGIS teams used counting scales to count all small items
  • Pallets were moved to ground level, for auditors to count
  • Auditors reported on any variances to the customer’s system


The equipment manufacturer found by outsourcing the wall-to-wall warehouse stocktake project to RGIS, the following results were achieved:

  • RGIS teams accurately counted 100 pallets
  • The inventory was carried out during the weekend, so there was no disruption to the production lines
  • RGIS teams were able to provide accurate stock quantities, as well as the location of the products, so the customer was aware of how full or empty certain areas of the warehouse were
  • The customer was very satisfied with the services performed by RGIS, and was able to update the system with up-to-date and accurate data provided
