A cost-effective and efficient pallet racking solution
Bowman Ingredients Ltd had reached a state of maximum capacity across their existing production facilities situated in Hitchin, Bedford and Ickleford, and so, in order to overcome this issue, they agreed to take on a new warehouse space in Biggleswade, Bedfordshire, with the focus on utilising the entirety of the warehouse cube in order to meet future growth and demand.
"As part of our company's expansion programme, we decided to use Atlas House in Biggleswade to increase our ability to store pallets in-house, eliminating the requirement to store pallets outside the company," comments Logistics Manager, Darren Culverhouse. "I contacted SEC Storage and met with Project Sales Director, Gary Kirk on several occasions. Gary meticulously measured out the building and served me with reach and narrow aisle options, and he also demonstrated the ability to create over 4,200 pick locations," adds Darren; an essential goal of the project.
SEC Storage was one of two companies tasked with the design of a storage solution for Atlas House, the other being our client's existing MHE (materials handling equipment) provider. However, it was agreed that SEC's adept approach to space planning and competitive pricing of the project is what ultimately won the contract. "SEC priced the work very competitively, given the task to cover all of the works that they had quoted on. This included the removal of a mezzanine floor, the dismantling of a lift and then, subsequently, the installation of the racking."
