Johnston Logistics UK responds to support Heatrae Sadia with their factory refurbishment

Norwich based manufacturing company Heatrae Sadia, recently turned to supply chain experts Johnston Logistics UK to support them during their factory refurbishment with overflow warehousing.

Heatrae Sadia needed to free up space to rework their current operational areas at their Norwich Airport location. Johnston Logistics UK, based in Snetterton, was the ideal solution to their problem and worked together as a team to deliver a successful stock migration plan.

Sean Farrell, Johnston Logistics UK operations Manager said “We have been working with Heatrae Sadia for a few years now. They have always been happy with the logistics services we’ve provided, so we are delighted they chose us to provide a solution to their storage problems while they were having work carried out on their factory.  We have over 40 years’ experience in providing overflow warehousing solutions, so businesses know they can rely on our expertise”.

Warehousing, just like other business activities, is not without its problems and if not planned these can quickly escalate, costing your business time and money.

In the majority of manufacturing companies, space is limited for warehousing. The ideal supply chain solution is to have enough raw materials, products and parts available to manufacture the current orders, with the finished goods at the end of line shipped direct to the customer or to the stock warehousing operations.

Sean went on “We receive calls from companies that find they cannot cope effectively storing their own stock. Whether this is through growth or, as in this case, through refurbishment work being carried out. The important issue is that businesses have a solution in place should a problem arise so that any operational changes do not have a negative impact on customer service.”
