Modern warehouse opens to help protect workers

A Manchester-based personal protective equipment provider has opened a new state-of-the-art facility.

The £4m warehouse, which has been opened in Ashton-under-Lyne, is the new premises for Rodo Limited. With the demand for safety workwear on construction sites growing, the firm will use its 10,000-pallet capacity, double that of its old site, to meet its own growing demand.

The site has been specially designed for the firm, offering the most sophisticated storage facility for its needs.

The warehouse racking weighs in at 280 tonnes, for example, while the warehouse flooring has been engineered to exploit the latest developments in forklift technology. As well as ‘man up’, laser-guided forklift mechanisms, the new Rodo site benefits from paperless management, auto-palletisers, and a voice-activated picking system.

Discussing the new facility, the managing director of Rodo, Bill Brierley, said that it would allow the firm to add greater levels of customer service, as well as to provide a quicker response to queries. Also, explaining that it will let the company take on more staff, Mr Brierley continued:

“We have been trading in the Ashton area for 88 years and our workforce is now over 100. These further improvements in our service and the fast availability of products will give us a valuable edge in our market needed to sustain future growth.”

The firm has stated that it is committed to staying in the Ashton-under-Lyne area to provide support for the local economy, as it has done for a number of decades.
