A Sneak Peek Inside A Distributors 1,000,000 SQ. FT. Facility


Systems in Motion is so excited to share a behind-the-scenes look at KeHE’s 1,000,000 SQ. FT. facility! This massive project was a true labor of love, and we're so proud of the final result. From the empty shell of the building to the installed material handling solutions, this space is truly something special. Two weeks ago, they held an open house in Dallas Texas. Keep reading to learn more about what went into making this facility a reality.

KeHE Distributors (KeHE), one of the largest natural & organic, specialty, and fresh distributors in North America, will unveil its newest and largest distribution center on October 5th in Dallas Texas. Additionally, the new distribution center allows more dedicated support for the company’s ever-growing list of retailer and supplier partners. As KeHE continues to expand and drive innovation, this newest distribution center has enhanced its technology to improve service levels to its partners.

When we embarked on this project, we knew it was going to be a big undertaking. But we had no idea just how big it would be! We ended up installing 4 OPEX machines, 10 different types of conveyors, and over 7,000 IN. FT. of wire (including line voltage and controls). We also installed 9 control panels and 106 power supplies. And that's not even including the 52 scanners/cameras installed or the 109 I/O points! Overall, this project took months of planning and execution to complete.

We couldn't be more thrilled with how everything turned out. The finished product is a state-of-the-art facility that will help serve KeHE’s clients for years to come.
