Germany-based spare parts provider GEV says UK engineers are set to benefit from a warehouse upgrade that now gives it the ability to hold more than 70,000 lines of stock.
The company has invested in a state-of-the-art distribution storage facility complete with 14-metre high towers and a fully-automated picking system.
It says that 95% of parts ordered before 3pm will now be delivered to most UK destinations the next day.
GEV has a UK support team based in Grantham, Lincolnshire, and Bryn Vivian, sales and administration director at the company, believes the expansion will help it develop business with a larger number of service customers.
“Our new Lean-Lift storage system is allowing parts to be located, picked and packed far more quickly and efficiently, whilst the additional storage space means we can retain more stock on a regular basis,” he said.
“Providing our customers with the right part for the job, the first time around, is key to our business and these new developments will allow us to do just that – only better.”
GEV claims that its online ‘Web Shop’ now features over a million separate parts and the expansion of its stocking facilities will allow it to develop additional lines without comprising customer service and speed of delivery.
GEV was founded in Germany in 1991 and has its head office and main warehouse space in Munich.
It supplies spare parts for gas, electric, refrigeration, washing and coffee-making equipment to more than 12,000 service customers throughout Europe and the rest of the world.
