Maximising storage capacity

Published:  08 August, 2014

The company aims to provide a one-stop-shop service for engineering steel products.

Apart from steel plate, which has been stored on cantilever racking and handled by a Sidetracker for the last 15 years, stock was previously stored on the floor and moved by a combination of cranes and manual handling. With no space to expand the premises, Abram Pulman says it has increased the amount of stock by installing narrow-aisle cantilever racking and buying two more Sidetrackers to handle it. The steel is stored in stillages with fork pockets, with the trucks designed to match the fork pocket positions.
