The new Technology Supplies distribution centre (incorporating sales, administration and warehouse functions) was fully operational in the 1st quarter of 2012, after a three year project from initial concept designs, investment planning and business justification stages to the final detailed layouts / designs, build and fit-out, which was supported from start to finish by the warehouse design team from Gideon Hillman Consulting. 

 

GH Consulting Support New Build Modular Warehouse for Technology Supplies LtdThe new facility at Battlefield Enterprise Park in Shrewsbury occupies 32,000 sq. ft. and the warehouse comprises of bulk racking for storage and bulk pick, plus a range small item pick areas on the ground floor comprising of shelving, cantilever racking and secure unit storage/pick cabinets.

Technology Supplies Managing Director Gordon Campbell’s opinion of his choice of consultants to work with speaks for itself: “We were extremely impressed with the professionalism of Gideon Hillman Consulting. Every stage of the comprehensive project was discussed and we were kept updated on progress of each key element of the consultancy process. The final designs (which have now been implemented) exceeded our expectations and provided us with comprehensive layouts, material flow routes, storage system options and minimised equipment costs. Most importantly the new facility enables us to optimise space utilisation and meets our requirements in terms of anticipated organic growth. Gideon Hillman Consulting comes highly recommended by Technology Supplies Ltd, they are a truly specialist organisation with an in depth knowledge of materials handling and warehouse solutions".

"What makes the facility design so efficient is that it has been designed to specifically accommodate the projected business growth over the next 15 years, without initially over-investing into floor space, equipment and fit-out. This has been achieved through a modular design approach, which as well as negating initial over investment also provides flexibility if the Technology Supplies’ business plan change over the next 10 to 15 year planning horizon."
Gideon Hillman, Managing Director of Gideon Hillman Consulting.
