Auto dealership parts storage

Hänel Lean-Lift Vertical Lift Module and Rotomat Vertical Carousel

Cochran Automotive

Cochran Automotive was founded in 1965 as a local dealership and has since become one of the leading automobile dealers in Western Pennsylvania. 
Cochran Automotive is among the foremost dealerships in the United States and maintains three branch locations, 10 showrooms and 13 franchises for new cars.

Integrated spare parts storage

In order to expand the service area without having to construct an additional building, this Buick/GMC dealership in Monroeville installed a Hänel Lean-Lift® and a Hänel Rotomat® centrally in the repair shop area. These storage systems protect all parts from dust, dirt and unauthorized access.

Maximum storage volume within a small footprint

Thanks to the enormous amount of space saved, all of the parts formerly kept in a large shelf depot are now stored in just two Hänel systems. Everything is available from a central retrieval area in the vehicle service area.

Easy integration in the existing IT system

Both lift systems were connected with the dealer‘s existing data management system. This ensures constant inventory monitoring and control while also increasing overall productivity.
