Ramon Hygiene Products has recently completed the construction of a brand new warehouse at its Thurmaston Boulevard site. This new facility will provide improved availability for customers and greater capacity for new products.
After two years of planning and six months to construct, this new 21,000sq.ft building represents a multi-million pound investment. Its 14 aisles hold an additional 3000 pallets and will be mainly used for the storage of imported finished bulk goods, bulk manufactured lines and imported raw materials. Currently Ramon imports around £7 million worth of goods annually. The new building eliminates the need for third party warehousing. With the construction of this new building all goods can be held on site, providing greater availability and service for customers.
The construction of the building itself is not the only improvement the company has made. Stock will be managed with the introduction of a new warehouse management system. This will provide greater operational efficiency and also improve quality procedures in line with the company’s BRC accreditation.
