Leading supplier of decorating accessories, workwear and personal protective equipment Rodo Ltd opens a new £4 million, state of the art, automated warehouse in Manchester.
The new warehouse has been designed and built by Rodo to keep pace with continued business growth. The new hi tech facility has been fitted out with 280 tonnes of racking enabling over 10,662 additional pallet storage spaces. It also benefits from industry leading features including a paperless management system, voice activated picking, laser guided “man up” fork-lift systems and auto-palletisers.
The new warehouse and distribution facility doubles current capacity, enabling receipt of up to 5 containers per day and allowing Rodo to expand the dispatch area of the current warehouse as business continues to flourish.
“We are now in an even better position to enhance our customer service, respond more quickly to enquiries, and use our increased capacities to attract new customers,” says Bill Brierley, Managing Director of Rodo.
For Rodo, the new facility represents an exciting investment in the future: “These further improvements in our service and the fast availability of products will give us a valuable edge in our market needed to sustain future growth,” concludes Bill.
