The new year brings further investment for British manufacturer Instarmac Group plc
, following a month long development project at their Tamworth manufacturing facility.
Continuous growth and investment is something that the business is very familiar with, as they are on the horizon of their 40th Anniversary.
Instarmac has installed a new VNA (Very Narrow Aisle)
racking system. This modern storage method allows for over 2000 tonnes of stock to be kept in a relatively smaller area, increasing productivity.
Such VNA storage allows ‘inter-leaving’, meaning that operatives can ‘put away’ and ‘pick’ orders simultaneously. Up to 26 pallets of product can be efficiently stored in an hour.
Warehouse storage space has now increased by 50%.
The Instarmac manufacturing facility now runs with both VNA and Satellite racking systems, allowing for even more effective storage of daily fast-moving ranges.
This means that the business is in an even greater position to supply product for immediate delivery, directly from manufacture, on their 26-strong fleet. This is certainly British manufacturing at its best.
Instarmac is home to the Ultracrete, Ultrascape, Ultra Tile, Ultra Floor, Wondertex and i-fix® brands – servicing contract, architectural, local authority and distribution customers across the UK, and worldwide.
