Logistics BusinessRapid Shelving Delivery Helps UK Retailer Milestone

Toolstation, the multi-award-winning supplier to the UK trade, has reached a milestone with the opening of its 300th branch. SSI Schaefer played its part in Toolstation’s success by designing and installing the storage system, which holds the trade supplier’s entire branch stock, including out of gauge and long-length items.

The system is based upon SSI Schaefer’s robust, high quality Regal shelving range, which is highly versatile, modular and easily adapted to accommodate Toolstation’s large and variable product range. After agreeing the final layout for the store, Toolstation placed their order with SSI Schaefer on 22nd January with the complete delivery being made in just over a week. Thanks to rapid assembly between 1st and 5th February, the first stock was on the shelves in the Eastleigh branch on 6th February, ahead of the store opening for trading, six days later on 12th.
