In spring 2017, Ferroplan delivered an industrial lift to KaVo Kerr for transporting goods between two floors. The Tuusula-based KaVo Kerr specialises in manufacturing dental imaging equipment. They use the lift to transfer goods on pallets, components and spare parts, and equipment requiring repairs from one floor to the other.
The goal for KaVo Kerr was to find a supplier that was able to adjust to a flexible schedule and offer a product that could be installed in an old staircase while keeping the necessary structural work to a minimum. The qualities sought in the product were safety, reliability, and user-friendliness.
‘Ferroplan’s offer was not the lowest, but we’ve had good experiences of collaboration with them, which helped to sway our decision in their favour. And, after discussions, we arrived at a competitive price,’ explains KaVo Kerr’s Facility & EHS Manager Heikki Majakallio.
Safety and ergonomics taken to a new level
The lift is put to regular use by KaVo Kerr’s maintenance team . This new solution has boosted ergonomics and occupational safety, since equipment no longer has to be carried up the stairs for maintenance.
Ferroplan and KaVo Kerr are happy with the project, which ran smoothly from start to finish. The system is not only stylish but also highly functional and easy to use.
‘We were clearly on the same wavelength in the design stage. Special thanks to the installation team, as they did their job really well. Occupational safety was taken into account every step of the way,’ says Majakallio.
