Our HQ and warehouse facilities are based in Bedford, England and we have an additional site based in Aberdeen to service and support the requirements of our Oil & Gas customers in the North Sea. Our manufacturing facilities are located globally.
Our Heat Sealing Division operates from a separate site, also located in Bedford and is equipped with its own Design, Stores and Service operations to support an ever growing customer base.
Our services include:
Where it is preferable for customers to issue delivery schedules we cover stock holding in a framework agreement and ship to timed requirements.
A visual, “push” system for stock replenishment commonly used in some of our customer production cells. We can ship specified bag/box quantities and ensure suitable stock holding based on individual customer requirements.
Consignment Stock Holding
Our customers provide us with a schedule for production planning purposes against which product is manufactured and held in stock. Our customers advise us of usages over an agreed period and we replenish their on-site stock accordingly, as well as maintaining a safety stock level at our facility.
Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI)
Based on forecast requirements we manage customer inventory independently. Pre-agreed stock levels are maintained through direct regular access to the customer’s storage facility and additional safety stock is held at our own warehouse for unforeseen front end demands. Usage is monitored on an ongoing basis and stock levels are adjusted accordingly to ensure continuous availability.
Electronic Data Interchange (EDI)
For customers with a large portfolio of products and large quantity requirements of parts we can utilise our EDI system. Customer requirements and delivery schedules are directly transmitted into our ERP system so manual input is no longer necessary. Shipments are made, safety stocks maintained and production scheduling occurs based on information received via EDI. This increases the efficiency of order processing, makes order scheduling more accurate and eliminates human intervention and error.
Our dedicated Logistics Team manage the manufacture, movement, stocking and delivery of customer products to avoid line-stops and keep production lines running smoothly. We provide JIT deliveries to reduce customer inventory levels and subsequent costs involved, and provide FIFO as standard to ensure highest quality product is received.
We ship thousands of products daily to our customer’s national and global locations and control and handle the day to day issues and challenges associated with product supply.
