The highly flexible Kanban systems offered by Würth Industrie Service under our CPS® KANBAN service brand help you to make your warehouse and production effective and transparent.

Kanban system and principle
The principle of the Kanban system, which originated in Japan, is simple: it is a rolling two-bin system that, in contrast to traditional supply methodologies, provides C-Parts "just-in-time" directly at the point of use. The system can be easily adjusted if requirements or volume changes, simultaneously ensuring maximum delivery and supply security with reduced inventory levels and minimal capital commitment.
Our solutions for optimal Kanban control
The most suitable Kanban service solution for automatic replenishment is implemented, tailored to the respective items and the individual work situation and requirements. In all cases, the focus is on maximum availability of the right article in the right quantity at the right place and at the right time directly in production. With our diverse portfolio, we offer tailor-made systems that increase the efficiency of your company and optimize the material flow.
Patented and safe
The large variety of items required leads to disorganization and overcrowded shelves in many production halls. Our Würth small load carriers in accordance with the VDA standard can be perfectly combined and offer optimum storage options for a wide variety of items. With our containers, you can make optimum use of your existing storage space.
