Melissa & Doug, LLC is a private, speciality toy manufacturer headquartered in Connecticut. The company was founded in 1988, but has achieved double digit growth in recent years, expanding distribution online and worldwide.
In 2013, Precision Warehouse Design began to upgrade fulfillment centers for the company on the east and west coast. An aggressive timeline of 4 months from start to finish was necessary to prepare for the busy holiday season. The facilities were more than 600,000 square feet.
Our engineering team installed a sophisticated conveyor sortation system from MHS Conveyor Systems on the loading dock feeding 20 dock doors. Data Logic 5 sides scan tunnels and Interlake Mecalux pallet racking finished out the project.
Packages are scanned, analyzed, weighed and sorted at approximately 60 cartons per minute with their new system.
