"Whilst optimum storage capacity was one of our key drivers for the project, we still needed a storage solution that would meet and complement our operational needs.

 

SEC Storage helped us achieve this with their wide aisle configuration solution. Importantly, they helped us bring our total pallet capacity storage to 9,750."

Approach

Due to lack of suitable warehousing stock in Worcestershire, the company decided that building a new warehouse was the best option going forward.

 

First objective was to incorporate all stock into one site-removing the need for external storage/ Second objective was to build a warehouse capable of servicing the 15%-20% predicted year on year growth.

 

SEC Storage recommended that by increasing the height of the warehouse by a small margin, it would allow for the storage of full height pallets at the top beam level of the pallet racking.

 

Karndean felt this added greater safety to the installation, whilst optimising the number of full pallet storage spaces, as no products were stored on half height pallets.

 

The increase in height had little impact on cost but significantly increased the company's storage capacity overall.
