Shop Direct, which includes well-known household brands such as Littlewoods, Very and Isme has commissioned Logistex Ltd. to complete a refurbishment and modernisation project on their automated warehouse cranes.
Their distribution centre in Shaw, Oldham has 19 mini load cranes originally manufactured by Cleco, the historical company name of Logistex.
Over the next four months Logistex Engineers will visit the site and complete phase one of the refurbishment and modernisation of the 19 cranes.
The mini load cranes are part of Shop Direct’s Bulk Carton Store (BCS) that stores cartons containing merchandise for their online retail business.
Logistex have a strong history in refurbishments and modernisations and have completed similar projects for other businesses such as United Biscuits and the MOD.
At Logistex we understand that material handling equipment is only paying for itself when it’s running. When it stops unexpectedly it very quickly starts to cost your business dearly. Equipment that has been running for some time, wears and begins to encounter an increasing risk from obsolescence.
Equipment obsolescence is a major concern today. Technology moves forward at pace and suddenly finding that equipment on your system is no longer available can result in long downtime with extensive cost impact to your business.
Undertaking a refurbishment and modernisation is also an opportunity to improve. We seek to improve equipment performance as a part of any refurbishment or modernisation. This can often help to justify the investment as the performance improvements deliver tangible benefits other than just risk avoidance.
Logistex have extensive refurbishment and modernisation experience and can undertake part or full refurbishments to a wide range of systems and equipment whether it is Logistex equipment or not. We project manage and plan the works around your operation to minimise disruption to your business.
We carry out refurbishment and modernisations to a wide range of MHE including:
• Manual cranes
• Automated cranes
• Mini load crane systems
• Sortation systems
• Conveying systems
• Picking systems
• Very Narrow Aisle (VNA)
• Fork Lift Trucks
