‘Gideon Hillman Consulting and the team there have been a terrific support throughout the entire project of getting the UK Fulfilment Centre up and running. The timelines we had were very tight, but they worked tirelessly with us to select the right providers to deliver the right solutions that we were looking for as a business to get this Fulfilment Centre up and running. Throughout the process they worked with us through the ups and down, we had some challenges along the way, but our Project Manager, Phillip Beckham, was available 24/7 to help us to get the Fulfilment Centre up and running. We thoroughly enjoyed working with GH and I look forward to working with them again in the future.’

"The final presentation and proposals exceeded our expectations and provided us with a comprehensive overview of suggested warehouse layout designs, material flow routes, storage system options and projected equipment costs. More importantly it has provided us with the 'peace of mind' that the proposed new facility enables us to optimise space utilisation and meets our requirements in terms of anticipated organic growth.
