Bufab supplies bolts, screws and nuts, as well as some electrical equipment to manufacturing industry. The number of dispatchs is over 200 per day. 

The weight of the metal goods stored in the warehouse threatened to load the floor too much, and an external designer made the calculations for the load capacity of the warehouse concrete floor. Frame was built of square pipe and the pallet racking was assembled on that. The uprights are fastened to the pipe. "This is undoubtedly an exceptional solution, but it has worked well. The same support structure was also wanted to use as guide rails for narrow aisle forklifts , so no separate guide rails were  required, "logistics manager Tomi Tanskanen says.

The storage consists of six meter high pallet racking with about 6000 pallet places with pallet load of 800 kg and also six meter high Narrow Aisle storage by the shelving system S90 with 5.250 shelf running meters and 18 shelves per section.
