new facility - warehouse layout and design

Technology Supplies Ltd is a leading supplier of Design & Technology and Art products and equipment to schools and colleges throughout the UK and overseas. As a result of the rapid growth of the Company, we are in the advanced planning stages for an investment in a modern new purpose built facility incorporating our sales, administration and warehouse functions. Our biggest concern related to the size of the new facility and whether the proposed building would be sufficient to cater for the projected strong growth over the next defined number of years. Particularly pertinent was the required size of our logistics operation taking into account the seasonality of the business.

We appointed Gideon Hillman Consulting to carry out a detailed review and assessment of our planned new facility to ensure that it was fit for purpose and met our needs in terms of the planned organic growth.

We were extremely impressed with the professionalism of Gideon Hillman Consulting and depth and analysis of the overall review and assessment. Every stage of the 'hands on' review was discussed and we were kept updated on progress of each key element of the consultancy process. The final presentation and proposals exceeded our expectations and provided us with a comprehensive overview of suggested 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.

The Gideon Hillman Consulting proposals will be incorporated into the design of the new facility as we move forward with this major project during the next 12 months. Their review and assessment of our logistics operation has brought clarity to this design process.

Gideon Hillman Consulting comes highly recommended by Technology Supplies Ltd. They are a truly specialist organisation with an in depth knowledge of materials handling & supply chain solutions.
