2 New Sizes Added to Indicator Line

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: December 2011, Akron, Ohio — Akro-Mils, a North American leader in storage, organization and transport products, announces the expansion of its line of two-toned Indicator Bins — an innovative, low-cost alternative to high-end inventory control systems that offers effective inventory control at a glance.

New 18"-deep Indicator models include the 36448BLUE (17-7/8" L x 4-1/8" W x 4" H and 36468BLUE (17-7/8" L
x 6-5/8" W x 4" H).
Never run out of inventory! Now available in four sizes, the Indicator Bin simplifies visual recognition when supplies need to be replenished. As part of Akro-Mils’ BinTelligence Series, the Indicator Bin allows end users to Stock, Pick, Flip and Replenish: users Stock the bin using the divider to designate volume for the inventory reserve; Pick from the blue side of the bin until reaching the divider; Flip the bin to the orange reserve to show inventory levels are low; and Replenish the bin and repeat.
The patent-pending design of the Indicator Bin utilizes a bi-color mold to achieve a two-toned bin. Other features and benefits of the Indicator Bin include: a bright orange trigger color that is ideal in 5S Lean initiatives; bins offer easy organization of supplies and work-in-process; the orange reserve prevents stock-outs; the system reduces excess inventory; the double hopper bin can be filled or picked from both sides; Indicator Bins feature a large label area on both sides; the rolled ridge provides added strength when bins are filled to capacity; and the bins work with 14" and 18" wire shelving, 12" and 18" steel shelving, and pick rack systems.
