Leading security, fire protection and heating controls supplier, ESP has been experiencing strong sales growth across all of its product ranges – CCTV, access control, fire protection, emergency lighting and the Sangamo heating and timer controls. As the company continues to grow, this has led to the investment in the operational aspects of the business to ensure that demand is met and that the company can continue to interact with its wholesale customers on site under safe conditions.
As well as the expansion of the warehouse capacity to meet growing demand for products, there has been reconfiguring of the space to maximise the operational facilities. The picking and packing area has been relocated, new workstations installed and equipment, including scanning guns, upgraded to accelerate the picking process. A specially designed kitchen has been built to provide a modern rest area for staff.
ESP has also created a spacious, purpose-built collection point at the front of the premises to provide a dedicated area for customers to pick up orders. New signage has also been installed at the 20,000 sq. ft premises to provide clear direction around the site.
Comments Neil Baldwin, managing director: “As the business continues to experience strong sales growth it is important that we invest in the operational facilities that enable us to service our customers, and the staff who serve them, to the very highest standard. This latest investment to increase our warehouse capacity and its functionality has set us up to meet further demand as the company continues to thrive.”
