PALLITE®’s COVID-19 Statement

PALLITE®’s COVID-19 Statement

We at PALLITE® want to reassure our loyal customers and stakeholders that we are doing our utmost to operate our business at full capacity, whilst keeping the health and safety of our workforce at the centre of everything we do.

In line with government guidelines we have made the following changes:

Increased hygiene measures on site

Restricted all internal and external visitors to site

Increased use of virtual meetings with our workforce, customers and suppliers

Ensured our workforce understand and follow the NHS guidelines for self-isolation

Worked with our raw material suppliers & hauliers to minimise risk of disruption

Increased social distancing in place at factory. Two-person jobs now single-person, only irrespective of any reduction in output

We are actively monitoring the situation and published guidance from the NHS, WHO and the government.

Our sales team remain available and willing to support our customers and their supply chains through these uncertain times.

We are currently operating ‘business as usual’ and are capable of shipping high volumes of standard products such as pallets and layer boards at short notice if needed.

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

Created in 1981, they make high quality and great value outdoor gear for the whole family. 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.

Issue

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.

Criteria

  • 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

Solution

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.

Result

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.
