Catering equipment supplier Die-Pat Divisions has completed a huge restructuring of its warehouse facilities in Daventry.
The company has made a substantial investment to optimise the 48,000ft2 space and improve overall performance and efficiency.
The storage facility has been transformed with the latest technology to enable continued growth of the business and better delivery of Die-Pat’s range of products and services to customers.
The warehouse can now house almost 1,200 pallets, an increase of 338. Additionally, new racking enables the housing of 375 out-sized pallets for bulk storage.
The firm has upgraded its racking systems, computers, workstations and equipment and the warehouse now benefits from an enhanced drive-through area and specially designated courier lanes for daily despatches.
New goods-in and despatch areas have been created, along with a new assembly and pick-pack area.
The goods-in department in particular required more floor space to accommodate the increase in the number and size of deliveries.
To achieve these needs 210 pallets were relocated to allow for the creation of the cleaner and more efficient section.
Eddy Edwards, MD of Die-Pat, said: “With a growing and diversifying business, it became apparent that in order to best serve our customers, both now and in the future, we needed to modernise and utilise our space more efficiently.
“We are lucky enough to have a huge warehouse, but with our group of companies evolving, we needed to make a substantial investment to allow and plan for continued expansion.”
