Established in 1974 as the flagship company of the Jumbo Group, Jumbo Electronics is UAE’s leading distributor and retailer for IT and consumer electronics. Jumbo is a trusted distribution and retail partner for many of the world's leading brands through its retail presence in Oman, Qatar, Bahrain and Kuwait.
The distribution warehouse in Jebel Ali was producing large quantities of cardboard and plastic which was collecting and blocking the area outside the warehouse. Three members of staff were working full time flat-packing the material which was then left outside, blocking the three loading bays that are used for incoming and outgoing deliveires.
Mil-tek installed a Model 306 baler to handle the cardboard and plastic waste. This is now baled and sold at market prices. The loading bay is now completely free of uncompacted waste, allow free access for deliveries and giving the yard a neat and tidy appearance.
The three employees share the baling duties, and use the rest of their time to focus on more fulfilling operational tasks.
