ProSite: Supplier warehouse directly at the customer

Apr 16, 2018 2:00 PM

Anyone who manages demanding construction projects wants to spend as little time as possible on administrative tasks, including ordering, reordering and accounting. ProSite from GF Piping Systems is a new logistics solution that significantly simplifies these processes. Currently they are testing first partners in Europe with promising results.


ProSite is a digitally connected supplier warehouse located directly on the premises or construction site of our customers with the parts most needed already there. They are provided with barcodes and can be scanned with a provided handheld. Automatically, paperlessly and in real time, any stock change is reported directly to GF Piping Systems, so that we can arrange an additional delivery if necessary. The billing takes place monthly. A supplied printer allows you to reprint your own barcode labels whenever needed.

Kinetics, a global specialist in building technology projects (including microelectronics and biopharmaceuticals) with approximately 2,000 employees, is one of our first on-site partners. At the Kinetics warehouse in Dresden alone, a center of the German semiconductor industry, ProSite constantly maintains or automatically supplies around 800 meters of piping and 1,500 fittings from GF Piping Systems. Alexander Klug, Director of Purchasing at Kinetics Germany: "The advantage that motivated us is the quick access to required parts. This makes us more flexible in material management and inventory management and is a relief for both sides."


"ProSite spares us a lot of work," says Birgit Hübner, responsible for purchasing at Kinetics in Dresden. "That means we no longer have to write orders, process delivery notes and organize shipping. Labor and administration costs have been reduced. "Kinetics, with 17 offices in North America, Europe, the Middle East and Asia, plans to expand ProSite to include additional sites. Other ProSite partners also supplement their own warehouses with this direct connection of their warehousing to GF Piping Systems in order to reduce their own labor and administration requirements and associated costs.

ProSite is one of the services of GF Piping Systems which complement our portfolio of more than 60'000 products with offers for all phases of a project. One focus of all our service offerings is the conversion from traditional metal to modern plastic piping systems. Please find more information about our services here.
