In 2018 Commonwealth Brewery Limited decided it was time to improve on their blue light indicators on the Fork Lift Trucks and Pedestrian walk paths—simply put, “it was just not good enough, we knew we could do better,” said Darren Pitt.

“During our extensive search we narrowed it down to a few vendors, but the Silent Partner solution was the best solution for our specific environment,” said Darren Pitt.

The Silent Partner RFID-based solution provides Audible and Visual alerts, which has significantly increased the awareness of the operators thus mitigating any potential accidents. They’ve placed the lights and alarms at blind spots and forklift entrances, as well as areas where there are no outlined walking paths.
“The system has far exceeded our expectations; the Silent Partner team has been fantastic to work with—in fact we’re adding to the over solution,” said Darren Pitt.
