The company had been using the existing warehouse to bulk stack materials however they were looking at every opportunity to consolidate their storage facilities, maximise capacity and minimise external storage costs.

With every day costing the company money, Thistle responded with their express racking service and was on site within 5 days of the order to dismantle the existing racking system ready for delivery and installation of the new system the following working day. The Thistle team reconfigured the existing racking around the perimeter walls of the storage facility and constructed the new racking in the centre area.

Pallet Racking Specialist Food and Drink, Alan Scott, explained “The design of the new racking system not only delivered a 50% increase in storage capacity however by moving from bulk stacking to adjustable pallet racking enables the company to achieve 100% accessibility to the materials.”

He continued, “Our Express Racking Service is designed specifically for these types of time critical projects where operational or financial demands require an immediate response.”
