Its busy warehouse is open seven days a week and covers 105,000 ft². 20 years ago they installed Storax mobile racking systems. After two decades of continuous use, they have decided to refit and have opted to stay with Storax and install eight replacement mobile racks each with a capacity of 128 pallets per rack.
The mobile racking section of the warehouse accounts for about 10% of the entire space. It is principally used for the storage of bulk beers as well as confectionery, groceries and soft drinks for export. This particular section is part of the goods inwards operation and is off limits to the general public. The main area of the warehouse, accessible to customers, contains conventional static racking.
Parfetts Operations Manager Dave Thompson is responsible for the warehouse. He says: “The four week installation was completed on time and with minimum disruption. This was especially important as the pre Christmas period is a particularly busy time for Parfetts when we take in much higher levels of stock.
We’ve been very happy with our Storax mobile racking but needed to upgrade. The new mobile racking has state-of-the-art Cascade Controls which allow all racks to move together, which is an added benefit. Overall I’m very pleased with the service we have received from Storax.”
