Flavour Warehouse, the UK’s largest independent e-liquid manufacturer has successfully implemented a new innovative smart warehouse. They are the first vaping company in the world to incorporate the use of autonomous mobile robots to address picking processes within its operation, increasing picking accuracy to 99.74%.

Partnering with Geek+, the world’s leader in robotics automation, Flavour Warehouse introduced an automated robotic picking solution to its distribution centre, designed to help increase productivity as orders continue to surge.

Geek+ is a leading global technology company specialising in smart logistics. They apply advanced robotics and artificial intelligence technologies to create solutions for warehouse and factory operations. They have supported global industry leaders such as Amazon and DSV to improve their logistics and demands.

Flavour Warehouse is the largest e-liquid manufacturer in the UK. Since beginning their journey in 2012, Flavour Warehouse has continued to dominate the vaping market with huge brands including Vampire Vape, and incredibly popular and award-winning e-liquid brand.

Phil Boyle, CEO of Flavour Warehouse, said “We recognise the importance of maintaining accuracy, quality and output as the business continues to expand, both through organic growth and through three strategic acquisitions that we have conducted in a short space of time.

We have reconstructed and modernised a large portion of our 130,000 square foot estate based in Darwen, Lancashire to support the modern day and future demands of our business operation.

The use of this technology, coupled with our expertly trained staff allows us to continue to grow and serve our customers with the highest standards possible.”

Flavour Warehouse has followed in the footsteps of other retail giants such as Nike, ASDA, and Decathlon to incorporate new technology into the distribution sector.

David Steele, Group Technology Director at Flavour Warehouse said, “Technology plays a very important role in the successes we have seen at Flavour Warehouse.

The technology industry is incredibly fast paced and it’s important that we are aware of current and future trends across the vaping industry. Implementing robotics allows us to future-proof our business, whilst creating a solid foundation for us to continue to explore other innovative possibilities.”

Flavour Warehouse have carried out strategic planning over the past 12 months and utilised skills within the business to work alongside the new technology and ensure that operations remain consistent and undisrupted.

Over the years, Flavour Warehouse has acquired three businesses and have ambitions to continue their growth in the vaping industry.
