Leminar inaugurates 168,000 sq.ft. Logistics Centre for HVAC supplies

Inauguration 1Dubai, UAE, 31st May 2016: Leminar Air Conditioning Company, the leading HVAC distribution company in the Middle East, inaugurated its Central Logistics Centre at Ras Al Khor Industrial Area in Dubai, UAE. The recently expanded warehouse spreads over an area of 168,000 square feet and has a capacity of 7,531 pallet slots.

The facility is one of the largest of its kind in the country for the HVAC market and can accommodate a stock inventory worth up to AED 100 million. The Central Logistics Centre is controlled by an Oracle-based Warehouse Management System, which allows Leminar to plan, track and monitor deliveries in an efficient manner. The WMS currently helps in prioritising deliveries, improves labour productivity and maximises space utilisation.

Jason D Matos, Corporate Manager of Logistics, Leminar Air Conditioning, said: “The second phase of technology upgrade is planned, which will add several more intelligent features like ageing stock identification, quantity recommendations for fast moving products and paperless picking. We are increasingly investing in latest technologies to streamline our operations and ensure speedy distribution.”

“The market is evolving quickly and companies that do not plan their strategy ahead are going to be irrelevant. By expanding our storage facility and distribution channels, and through new partnerships and acquisitions, we are confident of establishing a stronger presence over the regional HVAC industry,” added Pramodh Idicheria, General Manager, Leminar Air Conditioning Company.

In addition to the Central Logistics Centre in Ras Al Khor, Leminar has a 29,000 sq.ft. facility in Mussafah in the capital city of Abu Dhabi and five showrooms spread across the UAE.

The inauguration was attended by H.E. Hisham Al Shirawi, Vice-Chairman of Dubai Chamber of Commerce & Industry and member of the Board of Directors of Al Shirawi Group, and Navin M Valrani, CEO of Leminar Air Conditioning Company.
