New 10,000 square foot warehouse to support demand for “Just in Time” service & Brexit contingency planning29 November 2018
Specialist packaging manufacturer GWP Group has recently invested in a third warehouse at their site in Cricklade, Wiltshire, increasing storage by 20%.
The new 10,000 square foot unit was completed on 20 November this year, and complements the existing 65,000 square feet across two units already on the site.
The new warehouse will help manage the supply and distribution of packaging products to GWP’s customers in the South West, whilst supporting the company’s continued growth throughout the region and beyond. It will also prove invaluable in terms of contingency planning for Brexit.
The warehouse provides space for an additional 950 pallets - for the storage of finished packaging products - which GWP hold on behalf of their customers.
James Pedley, operations manager at GWP Packaging said: “One of our key services is to hold our customers stock, and to supply it to them on a ‘Just in Time’ basis. This frees up their warehouse space, reduces their associated costs, and also allows us to monitor stock levels and manage peaks in demand for them too.
“Around 80 percent of our customers have us manage their packaging inventory for them, and with continued growth over the last 24 months, we have needed to increase our storage space in order to maintain the success of this service.”
