Back in May, refurbishment of our Mansfield Distribution Centre began. It promised to be an exciting time for Snows and our customers, as it meant improved efficiencies across the picking and milling of product.
It’s been a busy 6 months reconfiguring the site to allow from more warehouse space, installation of hardstanding ground and introducing new machinery in the mill.
The first task was to demolish existing office space which made room for an extension of the existing warehouse. This resulted in an additional 900m2 of warehousing space, meaning the site has much more room for raw materials, and a safe place to store products once processed in the mill.
Due to the position of the extension, room for more hardstanding ground was also created. This gave the opportunity to review and create a loading area to cater for our fleet, ranging from hiabs to curtain side lorries, and made loading orders quicker and effective. Alongside all of this, a new high-speed line has been installed in the mill meaning we can process more raw material.
All the work was complete whilst the whole site ran business as usual to fulfil orders for our loyal, valuable customers. It’s been a challenging time to ensure this happens, but the benefits of this circa £0.5 million investment should now be enjoyed by our colleagues and customers.
We want to share the improved site with our customers. If you'd like to find out more about our operations, contact your local Business Development Manager or our National Sales Office on 01604 340380 to organise a visit.
