Efficiency drive continues with distribution centre refurbishment

Published:  11 December, 2018

Snows Timber has completed a £500,000 refurbishment of its Mansfield Distribution Centre to improve efficiencies in the picking and milling of product.

A new high-speed line has been installed in the mill to increase processing capacity and the site has been reconfigured to accommodate more warehousing space and hard standing ground.

Existing offices were demolished so that the existing warehouse could be extended. This resulted in an additional 900m sq of space for raw materials and secure storage for products after processing in the mill.

The additional hard standing ground has been used to create a better loading area for Snows' delivery fleet.

Snows Managing Director Ian Church said: “I’m delighted with the completion of the latest initiative in our drive towards improved efficiency and service. We were able to maintain business as usual while all the work was completed so service to our loyal and valued customers was uninterrupted.

“It’s been a challenge, but the benefits of this investment are now ready to be enjoyed by our colleagues and customers.”
