Deco-Pak invests £1m in improved stock and transport systems

Published:  14 November, 2014

Deco-Pak, UK supplier of aggregates and landscaping products, has invested more than £1m in its stock and transport systems for the coming season, to ensure even higher levels of service and customer satisfaction will be achieved.

The team at Deco-Pak is dedicated to delivering the best possible customer service to its retailers in 2015. With more than £500,000 worth of stock already on the ground for the coming year, the company intends to continue with high level of production throughout the quieter winter months to ensure retailers receive stocks in a timely manner next year.

Rod Slater, Deco-Pak’s general manager, said: “We’re always looking at ways to offer our retailers exceptional levels of service, and felt that now was the right time to invest in both our stock and transport systems. We’ve recently purchased two new high-tech robots which have helped to increase our manufacturing and packaging capacity by 40%, enabling us to excel when managing demand during peak periods. As a result we are also able to confirm that we are on target to put over £1m worth of stock on the ground before the season starts.

“We are also extremely excited by our new transportation partnership, which will see our distribution network grow three-fold, while improving our delivery lead times. In addition we welcomed a number of new staff to our warehousing facility, meaning we are now in a position to offer our customers even more unrivalled service levels.”
