Through our respected brands: Link51, Apex, Polypal and Probe we are a leading supplier of storage systems across the UK and continental Europe. Whittan has worked with a veritable who’s who of names in retail, manufacturing, transport, property, construction, local and national government, and professional services. Employing more than 1000 men and women, the group’s factories process a combined total of over 1000 tonnes of steel each week. Group factories are focused on manufacturing pallet racking, shelving, cupboards, lockers, and plastic containers.
The overall goal is to design, develop and manufacture storage systems for warehouses, manufacturing plants, commercial and industrial locations for a wide variety of sectors. With sectors requiring tailored solutions this means that we design and install manual and automated solutions for warehousing, including conveying, picking and sorting. We can also find ourselves providing front of house and back of house solutions for retailers, archiving solutions for museums, lockers walls for educational establishments, small parts storage for automotive and mobile shelving for commercial offices.
Our stand at IMHX will particularly focus on our two leading warehouse brands, Link51 and Apex. Being part of Whittan allows Link51 and Apex to assimilate their design, manufacturing and installation knowledge, maximising synergies and efficiencies to deliver better customer service.
We will be showcasing their expertise in implementing innovative storage solutions from 3PL warehouses to complex omni-channel fulfilment centres. Each company has extensive proven experience in delivering scalable solutions, incorporating core Whittan storage products along with dynamic storage, garment hanging and conveyor systems, delivering added value, savings and ROI for customers. From a single shelving bay to dynamic pallet racking, from multi-tier pallet racking or shelving to staff lockers, Whittan has the products to fulfil your needs.
Maintaining in-house manufacturing ensures our customers benefit from our extensive experience in steel forming and fabrication techniques, creating custom-designed storage solutions using standard or ‘bespoke’ components. European located manufacturing sites ensure ease of supply along with minimal carbon footprint for customers. As you would expect our factories operate quality systems in accordance with the latest ISO standards.
Project Management and Installation of any job is absolutely key. In addition to structural engineers and solutions design experts, both Link51 and Apex have people who have direct experience in large logistics operations and understand how specific points of any design influence the overall flow and efficiency of the operation itself. How to utilise the cube to create the maximum storage space, minimising the distances that product travels and the efficiencies that can be achieved from layouts that drive higher pick rates and greater pick accuracy, We understand the importance of using the most appropriate storage equipment, irrespective of size, complexity or location of the installation.
From the initial briefing and site survey to detailed design proposals, manufacturing, installation and final commissioning, our storage experts take project planning seriously, so you know you’re in good hands. We will also be presenting our bespoke design and specification software, Design 360. This unique system allows customer requirements to be quickly and easily translated into workable designs, utilising Whittan’s full portfolio of storage products along with a wide range of dynamic storage equipment.
We will have senior members of our team on call throughout the show to illustrate the pedigree of the group and the depth of products and solutions that we are able to offer.
