Masters Logistical Services is a UK distribution and warehousing services provider that delivers same day, dedicated and palletline transport solutions from a centrally-located base that is ideal for the A14, The Port of Felixstowe, M11 and other connected trunk roads. With more than 85,000sq ft of storage space, the company can offer both heated and ambient warehousing facilities across five buildings, as well as 6,000 rack spaces and bulk stack storage capacity for 3,000 pallets.
In 2008 there was an immediate requirement for racking to store approximately 3000 pallet locations in a 26,000 sq ft warehouse.
The existing incumbent supplier was unable to supply this product and so Masters decided to go out to tender with 3 different companies.
AWS won the tender and were quickly able to supply Double Deep Racking for the warehouse and install the racking on an operational basis to convert the existing bulk stack area into palletised racking systems.
In subsequent years AWS have provided further racking in 3 buildings to a current total of 6,000 rack spaces. The service also included SEMA Approved Racking Inspections on a regular basis in accordance with PUWER Regulations.
In 2012 AWS fitted out another warehouse for Masters with Narrow Aisle Racking, which was a better solution for the profile of the building and product stored.
With Acorn, Masters have benefited from a solid and reliable partner who can be available at short notice to inspect and repair racking installations.
As part of that partnership, Acorn also provide their expertise in the design, specification and installation of every type of pallet racking solution at competitive rates either re-using the customer existing equipment or supplying new or used equipment.
“With Acorn Warehouse Solutions we knew we were on to a winner from the first meeting onwards. Kevin Fouhy impressed us with his personable and friendly approach, which meant we were ‘on side’ immediately. This followed by the thoroughness and professionalism of their approach, and the fact that they regularly go beyond just what is expected, means that we can rely on Acorn completely for our every warehouse requirement. ”
