Fairchild Semiconductor Int. has opened a warehouse facility in Gyeonggi, South Korea. The $13 million warehouse will distribute discrete power products manufactured at the company's Butcheon, South Korea, facility to customers in Northeast Asia.

Fairchild claims the warehouse is equipped with an auto storage retrieval system. The company says the facility is capable of handling 150,000 shipments each quarter at full production. Products arriving at the warehouse are manually unloaded from trucks onto a conveyor belt, which moves them inside to be weighed and stored. Once products are in the warehouse, robots take over almost exclusively. The robots, directed by a warehouse management system, store, track and retrieve inventory when orders are received, explained Fairchild.
