Empowering Operators through State-of-the-Art Equipment and Optimum Service

Increasing order picking capabilities is made easy with the Jungheinrich Order Picker EKS 110 according to Warehouse IT Manager Alex Hernandez. “We are a multi-brand beer wholesalers, 30 years strong—SCMH gave us that opportunity to win and execute out on retail.”

Classic Distributing works with about 42 major suppliers and carries about 80% of beverage products you see on local shelves. As a multi-awarded distributing company, Classic is frequented by other distributors for best practices and new warehouse innovations. “We always recommend our Jungheinrich order pickers and in fact, two distributors have gone and purchased their own from SCMH.”

As a Warehouse IT expert, Alex is keen on order picking rates and has implemented many advancements such as voice pick, to boost productivity. “We have about 17 Jungheinrich order pickers and more are placed on order. These have given us the lift to our order-selecting operations, we’ve long been waiting for. The fact that its ease of use to navigate through the warehouse, and can lift the pallets off the ground high enough to load onto the conveyor, plus the platform raised 4-5 feet gives my team a chance to win and execute on the floor.”

Fleet and Facility Manager Dan Chilson who’s warehouse management expertise spans 34 years, 25 years of which has been with Classic, is keen on optimum maintenance and service of his fleet. “Investing in these equipment means investing in their maintenance as well. I recommend you find a company you can trust who is prompt, professional, and knowledgeable. For us, that is SCMH.”

Classic Distributing for SCMH

Both Dan and Alex speak highly of their account managers Jim Nolan (Major Accounts) and Henry Saavedra (Parts and Service). “They are very prompt. I call Henry for a repair and their techs who are really good, either Anthony or Jaime, are usually here within the day. To me that is very important.” Dan says that SCMH techs catch the smallest problems needing attention so that it does not scale up to bigger repairs that would cost more. “This is a big deal to us because it says so much about how they look out for our best interest.”

Classic Distributing & Beverage Group, Inc., servicing the Metro Los Angeles and Eastern Los Angeles County areas, celebrates 35 years of excellence in the beverage distribution business.

Berridge for SCMH

Eileen Huddleston, Berridge California Sales Corp. Branch Manager stresses the importance of equipment maintenance for companies like theirs whose operations are highly reliant on moving things around.

“Preventive maintenance is key in avoiding breakdowns. If we are down one lift truck, that translates into a loss for us.” Berridge is a metal roofing manufacturing company established in 1970 and is among the industry’s top pioneers in designing and developing architectural sheet metal products.

“Every day we move our products and if we don’t have a reliable forklift to move it out of here, we can’t service our customers.”

Berridge is under Southern California Material Handling’s Planned Maintenance (PM) service and recommends its preventive program as well as its repair services. “SCMH has been pretty good. They come in, do their thing. They’re here early and they get things done fast. For me that’s important because it does not disrupt our operations.”

For Berridge, whose wide range of products are constantly in demand, it is important to have uninterrupted workflow. “SCMH’s timing is just right—never too often, never seldom. That’s what works best for companies like Berridge who are always on a tight schedule.”
