When Leicester based Tedwood UK Ltd was deciding on a manufacturer to supply it with a top of the range warehouse storage system for Direct Heating Systems (DHS) new warehouse in Lancashire, it had no hesitation in awarding the business to PSS. PSS was able to provide Tedwood UK Ltd with the quality products and flexible approach needed to meet the demands of fitting out a modern, busy warehouse.
"We have a longstanding relationship with PSS, and although we went out to tender, the company was able to provide us with the most competitive quote, a guaranteed service and quality products", said Rod Wood, Director, Tedwood UK Ltd.
Located in Chorley, the new warehouse for DHS has been prepared for the company’s busy season, which runs from October to April. The company, part of the BSS Group, is a nationwide distributor to plumbers’ merchants, of boiler spares for all major boiler manufacturers. The new warehouse, will provide storage for goods-in and bulk storage prior to product being transferred to DHS’ main warehouse for despatch.
Once Tedwood UK Ltd had drawn up the requirements, PSS’s Technical Team began calculating beam lengths and weight loadings for the different product groups. Seven rows of pallet racking, including four double rows, have been installed with slated wood shelving, to enable ease of pallet placement. In addition two rows of PSS’s Shelfplan longspan shelving, designed to store bulky loads or small parts, has been installed under the mezzanine floor upon which the offices are situated.
The racking system, which accommodates 1,000 pallet locations, has been designed with wider than normal aisles to allow forklift truck drivers to have more space to manoeuvre quickly, whilst the Shelfplan longspan shelving, allows access from both sides, enabling safe, easy and fast hand picking.
