Regatta is Britain's best loved outdoor clothing and footwear brand and fast becoming a leading brand across Europe.

They now export to over 54 countries worldwide and have dedicated sales offices in France, Belgium, Ireland, Germany, Holland, Spain, Poland, Italy, Finland, Czech Republic and Israel. There are also a number of dedicated showrooms across the UK, used to showcase the very latest products. HQ is in Trafford Park, Manchester, home to all key departments including: sales, buying, design, marketing, planning, imports, export, accounts, IT and HR.
State of the art warehousing covers 580,000 sq feet, through which over 15 million units are shipped every year.
Regatta were starting to feel the creaks as their operations expanded. Their range grows 6% each year, and with a warehousing system that requires a fixed location for each SKU, they were quickly running out of space.
- Flexible - with multiple brands, seasonal changes, and SKU rotations, it was important to be able to easily make changes
- Value for money
- Easy to move between fast and slow moving SKUs without having to physically move product
- Sustainability in mind
The Regatta team had looked at alternatives such as installing a mezzanine floor to create more space, but this proved to be 10x more expensive than the solution put forward by PALLITE®.
PALLITE® supplied 300 PIX® Twin 12 units (with extra dividers supplied to allow extra pickfaces to be added) and 660 PIX® SLOTS Twin 12 units (with multipliers), creating 35,000 new pickfaces - with a significantly lower 'cost per pickface' than alternative solutions, all within the same footprint.
PIX® was delivered with a very quick turnaround - in around 1/20th of the time it would have taken for a mezzanine to be installed. This meant that Regatta could continue to grow their ranges without the pressures of a lack of warehousing space.
