The company had experienced significant growth in the UK and, like many companies do, had seen its storage requirements spiral out of control.

With 6 or 7 separate storage areas located across the factory, all featuring various types of industrial and hand-built shelving, the new Logistics Manager recognised the inefficiency of the facility and asked Thistle Systems for their input.

Thistle carried out a full site survey and discussed the current and future storage requirements with the client to understand the types of products being stored, the turnover of stock and the problems associated with the existing storage solution.

As well as the inefficient use of space, Thistle found that one of the client’s biggest frustrations was the time it took to find and pick the required item.
