In line with ongoing expansion plans and recent investments into our SPOT group network, work has been completed to increase storage capacity at our Greenwich and Birmingham wholesale distribution sites. Infrastructure improvements have been completed adding a total of 3300 sq metres of pick locations and pallet racking.
This investment into our wholesale network improves logistics and increases our capability to hold and turn around stock with a larger number of storage and pick locations, further building on our commitment to provide industry leading stock availability levels in existing and new categories.
State of the art single and two tier mezzanine floors, shelving and pallet racking systems were added to allow for quick and efficient pick and dispatch of orders and to better support our growing wholesale customer base.
Rick Jones, SPOT Group Operations Director commented: “The added footprint to the distribution centres has significantly enhanced the strategic operational ability of Spicers to deliver new product lines and hold more stock in the regions the centres serve. This has been achieved through Teccon Ltd warehouse storage systems. From concept to implementation, Teccon guided us through it all, on time, on budget and with minimal disruption to operations”
Spicer’s continue to grow, cementing our place as industry specialists to over 2500 customers in the UK and Ireland of which many depend on us as their primary wholesale source.
In the pipeline
After the successful completion of this expansion, we have approved the redevelopment and includes a further 1400 sq metres spread across our other national distribution centres.
