Logistex’s decision to become a fully 4th party integrator free of any manufacturing ties is winning considerable market approval. In just a few months the company has been awarded several six-figure contracts for new projects and upgrades both in the UK and mainland Europe. They include a high profile new project for FloraHolland for its Aalsmeer, Netherlands, warehouse and distribution centre; an IT upgrade at the mainland European warehouse of a leading high street fashion retailer, and an automated picking and packing system for office products wholesaler VOW. In addition the company has been appointed by Spicers, Coca Cola Hellenic, B & Q, ARCO and United Biscuits to upgrade their existing installations with additional equipment and new software.
Keith Edmonds, Logistex head of sales, explained: “Clients feel more confident once they realise that as a 4th party integrator we are able to select and recommend the most suitable equipment for the task – in short, we propose what we believe is the most appropriate solution, not what our factory is producing.
Our new philosophy has been particularly welcomed by many existing clients who have commissioned us to carry out extensive upgrades, adding extended life and improved performance to existing systems but at a fraction of the cost of new systems with very short payback periods. It’s also helping us to establish excellent business relationships with other technology suppliers in the industry who now view us as allies and partners, enabling us to offer the widest possible choice to clients.
There’s no doubt too that in the current environment clients and suppliers prefer to work with a strong and long-established company that they know will be around to look after their systems for years to come.”
