Challenge

Primaflow, part of Mueller Industries, is a leading multi-branch distributor of plumbing and heating products. The Birmingham-based company, which has eight branches across the UK, supplies plumbing, heating, and builders dealers, wholesalers and other specialist trade distributors. Primaflow first installed K8 in 2006.

The company handles a significant volume of transactions. There are 14,000 stock lines, 5000 active customer accounts and together the branches handle around 1000 shipments per day. The warehouse is unquestionably the hub of the operation – both centrally and across the branches. Primaflow were among the first to implement the K8 Warehouse Management application.
