Sweet upgrade for packaging firm warehouse

Posted by Mark
February 21, 2014 in News

A UK contract packaging company has this month upgraded its warehouse facility in Blyth, as it strives to underpin its current position and move into new markets.

Assembly and Packaging Services (APS) have spent over £40,000 on the upgrade. This includes adapting about 5,500 square feet of its warehouse flooring space in order to provide a temperature controlled facility.

This makes the warehouse able to store products such as drinks and pharmaceutical items. However, there is also an altogether more sugary side to things. The firm’s commercial operations boss, Chris Turner, has said that the new warehouse will be “vital” for producing new business opportunities for APS, including in confectionary, which is one of their key target areas.

Turner also said that the company was approaching the start of a new contract with a multi-national healthcare products manufacturer, and were in on-going talks with other firms about fulfilling their business needs.

In order to deliver the temperature controlled zone, plasterboard cladding and insulation panels are used to close off the warehouse racking. To further the precise control of heat circulation, strip curtains are positioned at each entrance.

The whole area is also computer controlled, with alert systems notifying rapid response teams by SMS should the zone’s conditions change.

The firm, who has previously had contracts with major blue chip companies, including Nike, Coca-Cola and P&G, also has a site in Derby. It is understood that the Derby site has not been upgraded at this time.
